October UFO update

It’s already beyond the midpoint of October and I haven’t even mentioned my October UFO project for this month!  Time is really starting to tick around here.

Hello 2016, Goodbye UFO's

I’m working on a table runner that I started last Fall.  I almost forgot it existed!  There’s a drawer in my sewing room that has kits and projects that I started or that I want to start, and I should be looking in that drawer more often.  This table runner is going to be finished just in time for Thanksgiving.  I think I’ll call it Pumpkin Spice.

I had some American Made Brand solids that I wanted to use, so I came up with this warm, gradated pattern.  It’s a little bright now that I see it with fresh eyes, but someone in my family might like it.  I do like the splash of colors against the neutral tan fabric.

I already had a backing ready to go, so now I’m on to the basting and quilting stage.  I think straight lines on the sides of each seam will be it for quilting; maybe some variegated thread to add interest.

October Prize Package

The prize packages for this month will include a book on free motion quilting, a charm pack of Juniper Berry from Moda, a spool of Magnifico thread from Superior Threads, a pattern and a prepaid subscription to The Quilt Show.

I hope you’ve got a UFO project that you’re working on this month.  The link up will take place on October 31st.  You’ve got 10 more days to get it finished!

  1. You have inspired me to pick up an old quilting project from last year with pieced autumn leaves. However, I also saw your Autumn Reflections wall hanging and now I want to do something like that, too!

  2. Love your color selections in your table runner! Well, I finally finished the UFO I thought I would get done in September –a quilted travel cosmetic bag for my daughter. It turned out just as beautifullyrics as I hoped.

    I love your table runner it’s so vibrant and the straight lines give it a simple but elegant look. It will look perfect on your Thanksgiving table. Please post apicture of it when it’s finished.

  4. I am working on a quilt for my Father that was supposed to be for Father’s Day this year. Yet a variety of events happened and it kept being set aside; I got it out last night and began sewing up the scrappy half square triangles. I now have a goal of having it finished in time for your link up. Such a wonderful motivation of special gifts. I hope that you accomplish your goal and finish your lovely table runner! Have a fantastic creative day!
