WOOFA Challenge

Finally got back to posting something on my blog.  It's taken me so long to post that I feel like my blog has become a UFO. I’ve been working off-and-on on the “Long Time Gone” quilt but today I started a new project.  Talk about unclear on the concept. Instead on making  progress on my UFOs, I start another one.  This is going to be a tablecloth for my brother who asked me to make one for him. Since he never asks anything of me, I want to get this started (notice I didn’t say “done?”With all of that said, here is my newest UFO. This is the beginning of a hexagon-shaped middle of a round tablecloth.

 


And then here are the final blocks completed for the “Long Time Gone.”  Now I need to sew them together. I’m actually just trying to keep up with my sister, Ida, from “Mysister made me do it” blog.  Once she  gets started on a project, she really keeps going.  Hard to imagine how she has any UFOs.

 This is the last of the half-square triangle blocks.

 


 And this is the 60 degree angle block.  I would not have thought that this would be so difficult but I did have a problem.  Notice how the points don’t match and  how awful the whole thing looks.

 

I am linking up to WOOFA today....please click on this LINK or on the WOOFA image to go visit Cheryll's blog and see all the progress being done by other bloggers joining the challenge.

Fine then.  That is all.

Nice to see what you are up to. I have a round table and have made two round cloths, actually to protest the wood from glasses of ice left to soak the wood. The trick was using dather dark busy prints to hide food stains.

Yay! I like your start on Albert's tablecloth....I love the round table topper you made for mine and it is usually the one I have on when it isn't a holiday. The race is on with LTG! Your blocks are pretty.... Yes I am pretty good with finishes (sometimes)....but I still have 2 quilt sandwiches waiting to be quilted so you may beat me on LTG..........

New starts are so much more fun!!! I know.....Ida puts us all to shame with her UFOs.your triangles do look a bit tricky. I doubt that matching points will be noticed in LTG. That’s the advantage of a busy quilt like that. Your brother will love his table cloth.

It's good that you have started a new UFO. It would be terrible to run out of them, wouldn't it. I'm looking forward to seeing both of your Long Time Gone quilts, as it is a design that really appeals to me.
