It may have been a short week after Easter, but I’m really pleased with my achievements so far on UFO number 5. I’ve been cutting, pinning, stitching and pressing like a woman possessed, this week. Raspberry pink sashing strips have been cut, a black setting square stitched on to one end, and then 9 strips together to go between the rows of blocks.
Then I sliced and diced and stitched up about 20 more black and grey nine patch blocks. I think I’ve made enough, but I won’t really know for sure until I start laying all the blocks out, and check how long I want the quilt to be. If I need an extra row or two, it won’t be too hard to stitch up some more blocks.
And then I couldn’t help myself – I just had to start piecing a couple of rows together. To be honest, I really wanted to see what it was going to look like, with some of the horse blocks in place. What do you think?
First two rows together
We have a busy weekend, appointments on Saturday and family lunch on Sunday, so I probably won’t be doing a great deal more stitching. And “fingers crossed” when I roll the dice again on Monday, hopefully one of my other UFOs will get picked for the coming week. But then again – It might be number 5 again!
