First UFO

Here's the first project I've chosen to work on for Judy's challenge. This is a table runner made from the leftovers of a Portobello market layer cake. I had just gotten my new Accuquilt Go! cutter and went to town cutting triangles. Since it was just a sample/test project, I set it aside and moved on to something else. It just needs quilting and binding at this point. I dug it out last night, ironed it, and basted it with fusible batting. It looked like it had been tied in knots and stuffed under a pile of bricks when I found it.

Yes, this is a pretty simple project, but I chose it for a few reasons. First it will be a quick finish. I can knock this one out of the ballpark for an easy win and get the year off to a good start. It will also allow me time to work on some of the more time-consuming UFOs for the rest of the month. Some of them will take longer than one month to finish. When I get this finished, it will go in my Etsy shop which is also one of my goals. A two-fer!

I've been ready everyone's UFO and new years resolution posts. Here's a great one you should all go look at from Wedding Dress Blues. I believe fabric is cheaper than therapy! Yes indeed the world does need more happy people.

Hope your 2011 is off to a good start.


  1. Good job on getting a great start on the UFO projects. My project for this month is pretty daunting, but I need to pull it out from my projects pile. Can't wait to see yours finished.

  2. Thanks for mentioning my silly little goal list, but happy really is GOOD. THis project is looking pretty good to me. I bet you will be pleased when it is finished.
