This September wallhanging was the UFO I was supposed to finish in June. Didn't happen. It's a finished top and it's small and I didn't finish it. I'm duly ashamed of myself. I hate to see another September come without this to hang on my front door. . .

This is my #2 UFO, "12 Days of Christmas"
pattern by Nancy Halvorson from a couple of
years ago. It's also a top. Christmas in July!!
Oh joy!! Don't you just love working on
something for Christmas when it's 100 degrees
outside? Me either.

But it's a completed top and all I need to do is
pin it (the most dreaded part of the quilting process for me) and quilt it (not so dreaded).

I hope to be a better girl in July and finish this one but, since I'm going on an 11-day cruise in July and have 8 blocks to make for a block exchange on the 30th of July,
chances are I'm doomed for failure.

Best of luck to the rest of you though! Can't wait to see the successful quilters on Judy's blog on July 31st!

Design Wall Monday June 27

This is Pilloapoppin, my Fairy Quilt Godmother. She is a paper pieced pattern from the creative talents at a wonderful website I go to for my paper pieced patterns. Right now they have a fun, FREE project that generates a unique Fairy Godmother for everyone who signs in. It took me about 3 hours to make this 10" x 14" project but isn't she wonderful!? You choose your own colors right from your stash so you can be as flamboyant and creative as you want. Definitely not for the faint at heart, there are dozens and dozens of pieces, some infinitesimally small in this project but OH SO FUN!!

Go get yours now! I hope to see some of them on a future Design Wall Monday at Judy's website!
