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.
