APQ and QUILTSY TEAM UFO Challenge March Finish from Grandma's Red Needle

APQ & QUILTSY Team's UFO Challenge for March 2020 is #7,
....and mine is FINISHED!


It was an easy finish, so to say; the top was already done and I had the backing fabric and batting. I finished it the first week this month, but didn't get around to take photos until a couple of days ago. Lots of rain and gloomy days lately, not the best weather for photographing.


I love scrappy quilts more and more. I had so much fun rediscovering 'old' fabric, some from when ...

APQ UFO Challenge March and February Finish from Grandma's Red Needle

It's March already, and another UFO to finish. 
APQ UFO Challenge this month, is #7. For me, that means 'Log Cabin #3' (Updated UFO list; #18). GEEZ! Looks like I can't make anything else than log cabin quilts!

Scrappy Log Cabin Under the Needle from Grandma's Red Needle

If you read my previous post, you know I - at that time - have a flimsy. 
Monday this week, I received the batting and backing for this quilt and since then it has kept me super busy! 


I took this photo two days back and last night I finished the quilting! Phew! 
There are some thread tails to be taken care of before I add the binding. 

Clear sky this morning and no rain during the night, which means it's time for some gardening / yard work today. 

HAPPY QUILTING!

Scrappy Log Cabin WIP and other stuff from Grandma's Red Needle

It's February! That means another UFO to finish!
APQ UFO Challenge for this month, is #9. For me, that means 'Log Cabin Blocks #2'. 


There are so many possible patterns for a log cabin quilt, difficult to choose. I had to decide, and ended up with this: 


When you are reading this, I've already pieced together these blocks and a few more. I started working on these scrappy log cabin blocks in March 2016! The idea was to make one block each day. It worked pretty well the first 3-4 months, but then I got bored. Last year ...

January is the month to start finishing all those UFO's that have accumulated through last year (and years before!).
