It's time to tally up what I've started in January as part of Cat Patches New FO Challenge. You can link up to that with the button on the side bar. I didn't think I was going to start much but as I was sorting through the stash and organizing the scrap, I had to step back and sew something. I have this friendship star quilt pieced.
This was the beginning of my scrap quilt journey. It needs backing and quilting so it is officially unfinished.
Then, because I need to have busy work with my hands at night, I started these Sunbonnet Sue redwork blocks.
As of last night, I have the embroidery work done. Now it's a matter of deciding how I'm going to put it together.
I saw this pattern in the January 2007 issue of The Quilter Magazine and thought it would be perfect for a scrap quilt.
As I was doing the "scrappin", I cut 6" blocks of lights and darks until I had enough to make 144 blocks. Last night I laid them all out on the floor and labeled them with little stickers because you can see there is a definite pattern going here. Minnie had to stroll through it all a few times but I got it the way I wanted it and started sewing some of those blocks together this morning.
Did I miss anything? Oh, I haven't finished the mini quilt for my swap partner. This is a swap hosted by Michele over at Quilting Gallery.

This FO Challenge is going to be especially challenging for me as I am a finisher. I have a hard time leaving projects left undone. But, if I start enough of them, that may not be a problem. I still have more spinning around in my head.
I'm also a mult-tasker so I'm scorching dinner while writing this. Time to shut up and save the food.
