Judy's second Quiltathon was today.
I started looking at my quilt on my design wall, and adding up what size quilt it is going to be. At this point, it's a little small, even if I added borders.
I looked over at my pile of 4 1/2" squares and half square triangles (that I spent hours and hours squaring up into perfect little 2 1/2" squares) and decided that my quilt needed to be larger. So I piddled around and decided which squares I was going to use to make 16 extra blocks. I didn't get any of them made, but that's okay.
As the day went on I started going through some of my UFO boxes. I pulled down my Monterrey Medallion, and realized that I don't have that much more to do and it will be finished! I could say that for just about all of my UFO's! I had stars all over my sewing room, along with my quilt on my design wall, and a baby quilt that I had started this past weekend and didn't finish.
I had to get a grip on this situation or I would have all of my UFO boxes open! So I put away the Monterry Medallion, made a decision on the squares I was going to use for the 16 blocks, and finished the baby quilt.
Isn't this one cute! If you would like a detailed tutorial on how to make this quilt go to Bonnies website and look under Charity Quilts. She calls it Streak of Sunshine.
Now it's time to go to Judy's blog to see what you all made during the quiltathon! Isn't this fun???
