I am declaring done two UFOs. My Grandmother’s Choice. I took this photo before I had the binding turned. I didn’t feel like taking the photo again, but it is now done. I am very pleased with my rendition of this old favorite. I did it using Tri-recs tools and revising the way it was pieced to avoid any inset seams. The tradotion is for bright colors, and I think it looks great in these colors.
Also, I completed my “Hearts” project. This is one that I started years ago and got as far as cutting the pieces for a few rows. Those pieces made their way into other projects along the way. Then I took some of the scraps from Grandmother’s Choice, and started to make a sample piece. Because I had figured out what I wanted to do with the hearts, but have not gotten the my design to work as I wanted. Still haven’t. I put this together and didn’t like it, so was going to put it on a tote bag or something. Since I took some of the scraps I used for Grandmother’s Choice, it seems fitting that they grace the back. It does add a bit of visual interest, anyway.
Reviewing my UFO list, that means I have marked 9 UFOs off the 2011 list so far. Of course, I also keep starting new stuff, so I have at least two other things upstairs that I started this year that are now “UFO’s”. August is going to be a busy month for me. A major project comes due at work, moving my daughter to graduate school in Louisiana, my brother is getting married, and other assorted dramas, I am sure.
Hope you had a productive weekend!
