Loose Threads: More Unpacking

More Unpacking

I've done a little more unpacking.  I've saved the quilt and yarn boxes for last for the most part.  This quilt is from Edyta Sitar's book Friendship Strips and Scraps.  This is a top that needs quilting.



I had some blocks left over, so I made a table topper with those.  The top right block was made by my daughter years ago.  She wanted to try this pattern (I can't remember what it was), so I bought her the book and ruler.  This was her venture into quilting.  Once she finished this block, she taught herself to knit and is now an awesome knitter.  The bottom right is just a little Christmas table topper made from 1" half square triangles.  So far everything needs quilted......



I spray basted these two Halloween panels awhile before I packed them in the box.  I'm not sure where I was going with either of them, but I found them in Tennessee on vacation.  So more UFOs.


This table topper is finished.  This one and the one below were a series by Northcott called Flower of the Month.  Each month there was a pattern and fabric that was appropriate for the season.  



If I find more of these, I think they will all be made from either the pattern above or below.  I sort of liked the star below (and it was easy), so I think I just mainly used that pattern.  I quilted both of these on my home machine.


And a blue churn dash table runner.  This one has been around awhile because I don't normally do things that are so much of one color.  I think this one is going to be a gift.  



That's the end of this box.  Even though I made a detailed list of what I packed, some of the names in my journal don't ring a bell.  I've found some surprises that I forgot about.  It's beginning to look like I need a plan to finish some of these UFOs.

Thanks for visiting!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

It's like Christmas in August for you as you unpack and find all those old projects that you'd forgotten about. ;-)

Looking at your post is a little like going up Grandma's attic with plenty of Ohhh! and Ahhh! The beautiful sunflower made by your daughter could become a wonderful one block wonder round robin. Just saying. Thanks for sharing.

I love the scrappy quilt - and what fun to open a box to find something that you either started and "almost" finished! You will be a busy bee.

You found some beautiful projects. I don't understand how that UFO pile manages to grow!!! I made a list of all my UFO's and it is mildly staggering! The list is great because I have to finish something off of it before I start something new. The new work has been completed instead of being allowed to join the UFO list. It works for me!

Is it kind of fun to find so many projects you had forgotten, or are you overwhelmed by the ones that aren't finished??

You have so many beautiful UFO's!! Love your pictures. Didn't realize you moved. I'll enjoy watching you work through them.
I've been busy working on my UFO's and WIP's. If I sew much, I don't have time to read blogs.
Don't overdo, dear.

I kept looking at the quilt again (Edyta Sitar) and thinking...I would love to do that in batiks. I decided to purchase the book - until I saw the cover and realized that I already had the book/ Whew - almost made a double purchase. I did that a couple of years ago with one of Elly Sienkiewicz's book - Beloved Baltimore Album Quilts - Proud owner of three (3)!!! LOL. Wonder if others do the same?
