A big week, as I made two backings. I quilted one of the quilts–the boxer quilt. The Alligator quilt (yes, you are right, no picture yet) is off the frame and I still need to do some work on it. After it, I loaded the boxer quilt, and now have a quilt on it that is promised for our guild’s silent auction for our show in October. So please notice that not only do I have some good “busted” numbers, I did NOT visit a quilt shop!! Also notice that the resulting number is now green….
Busted this Week: 10.75
Busted year to Date: 88.00
Stashed this Week: 0.00
Stashed Year to Date: 84.00
Net Busted for 2011: 4.00<<< Still within my goal>>> 2012 Goal: + /- 25.00

And What about Those UFOs?
This month, Judy at Patchwork Times chose UFO number 2 to work on.
For April, I gave my UFO away. As far as the UFO of the month goes, I plan on ignoring it again!!! At least for the moment. This is one challenge where I am just totally failing as far as following the number of the month. I am getting things done. I can’t believe the alligator is now quilted (except I found a couple of background places I missed), and have a couple of cosmetic things to finish–and am thinking of doing some interesting binding things that I really don’t want to detail until I figure out if they are do-able. They are in my head and not yet translating to fabric. Not sure if they can……….
Basically, I haven’t let the challenge update my creative process–such that it is. And the good thing is that I now have a focus on all these undone things. It would be so much easier if all the things I had left undone could just be sewn together and then quilted with a panto, but that’s not what’s on my list. Most of them are unique items that require some serious artistic work.
Perhaps I’m not working within the spirit of the challenge–tackling a specific project each month–but I am still working within the spirit of getting old projects done and/or off my plate. How about you? Making any progress?
