Fun in my fabric world....

Amongst the dust bunnies....

Yes, I did find something that needed finishing. A lot of it is cut out waiting to be sewn and I have my suspicions that it has been hibernating for nearly three years. Big oops!
I am going to be kind to myself though and remind myself that I have had a busy couple of years, renovating, moving and studying....I was not just being lazy. That is my self validation anyway!



It is a pattern called Confetti Cake and I was originally inspired by a quilt I saw on Sherri of A Quilting Life's blog. I still really like it, so the task now is to finish it! It is rather handy that a few more blocks are cut out, so I can just get straight into sewing...much more satisfying!
Hopefully there might be a bit more to show before 2013 comes to a close!

I made one of those about a year ago but it was called great granny squares. Lots of fun. I look. Forward to seeing yours soon. Hope life settles down for you this year.

No need for excuses, I've got quilts have complete because I got bored, one day they'll come out again. Good luck finishing this one, it'll be a beauty once it's complete!

That should be 'half complete'

I'm not even going to look to see what needs finishing! It's a definite positive when you find a UFO and you still like it three years down the track. Go girl.

I'm glad you found this one- it looks lovely! I agree with Marg- it will be timeless if you still like it after all this time! Enjoy your sewing time!

Don't beat yourself up! Sewing is supposed to be fun and relaxing, so don't try to stress yourself. It looks like it's going to be a beautiful quilt.

Happy New Year! :)

Wouldn't it be lovely to start the year with a finished UFO!

Its beautiful!... if you finish just after midnight then it will be a tick for the first finished UFO for the new year... What a start to a great sewing year!.... By finished I mean only the top needs completing... leave the quilting for someone else! LOL Xx

Hmmmm, I found something similar in my clean up yesterday. Don't have your excuses for not finishing it though!
