While my Embroidery Machine [Innovis 4000D] is busy sewing out butterfly blocks, for a swap I am in early 2013, I started thinking about UFO's and projects I want to make next year.
1] Machine embroidery swap with http://quiltwithus.connectingthreads.com/ "Machine Embroidery Buddies" .. so far 17 butterfly blocks needed!
2] Postcard swaps with http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BQLPC .. so far signed up for a birthday swap throughout the year and a "Naked" swap in March.
Patchwork ready for quilting:
A single bed size made from exchange Lotto blocks. [Already safety pinned]
Items in progress [ UFO's ]
Large size Machine embroidered BOM from 2012 [all blocks made needs completing]
Christmas machine embroidered blocks.. need to do something with them!
USA stars, almost all blocks finished.. need to make into a quilt
Cowboy picture quilt.. needs the pieces blanket stitched down and finished as a lap quilt
Birds and flower blocks from a ME exchange.. need making into a small quilt
A set of foundation pieced birds that need completing and making into a wall hanging
I am sure there are a LOT more UFO's lurking in drawers, boxes, cupboards etc...
New items I'd like to work on
Black and white log cabin quilt with a red accent, I've been collecting the fabric all year.
A set of ME cushions to match the new suite
Two Owl Drawstring bags
Back to Square One Mystery quilt [see side link]
Two lap quilts for use in the Land Rover
Ten Santa napkin holders [ promised for a friend]
