Encouraging Words of the Day:
And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. - Ephesians 3:18 (NLT)
UFOs have been on my mind lately so I've been working on getting a few of those out of the way, keeping in mind that I WILL use my stash to complete projects. I've done pretty well in that department lately. As for UFOs, I'm determined to finish a quilt I started in the "Pile 'o Fabric Quilt-Along of 2013." This entailed a quilt-as-you-go project and now that I'm finishing it, I love the quilt-as-you-go quilting. It's so much easier to quilt one block at a time with my sewing machine and sew them together after. I've got 5 strips of 4 blocks each almost completed. Then I'll sew the strips together and almost be done. Here are photos of what I'm doing.
Then I still have two quilt tops to sandwich and quilt, those being my Christmas quilt which I WILL complete in time for Christmas 2014 and my namesake, the "Good-night, Irene" quilt. I wish I had known hot to quilt-as-you-go before I got the tops all sewn together. I guess I'll have to do those the old-fashioned, tedious, time-consuming way.
That is all.
