It’s the last day of March and time to share your UFO finish and be entered into this month’s giveaway. If you’re just joining in, you can find all of the details here: Hello 2016, Goodbye UFO’s.
My project for this month was to complete the center alphabet blocks of my A-Z for Ewe and Me block of the month from 2014. And, yes, I got it finished and it feels so good!
This is such a big project that I had to break it into parts that span several months. Getting the interior alphabet units finished and sewn together is the first part. I’ll move on to the borders next (when that number comes up on my list per the APQ UFO challenge).
Working on this project brought back some great memories of my time on The Quilt Show, as their “2014 block of the month video specialist”. It also made me really appreciate the designer of this quilt, Janet Stone, and the work that must have gone into creating a BOM. Janet has made a series of beautiful alphabet quilts that have been winning awards left and right. If you’re interested in the original pattern, A-Z for Ewe and Me, I’m sorry to say it’s no longer available from the TQS website. We are looking into finding out if it’s possible to purchase the pattern elsewhere.
Now it’s your turn! If you have a quilt or other sewing project that you finished in March, add a picture of it to the link up. If you’re having trouble joining the link up, you can check out this tutorial, How to Join a Linky Party, by Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts.
