17ufosin2017 – February

Well Chickadees, how did you go during February?  It’s a short month and seems to have gone by even more quickly than it normally does.  Summer is at an end, but the warnings are out that Autumn will be quite warm – looking at the forecast for this week I can believe it; 32 endlessly!

Nevertheless, I did have a productive month.

Saigon is together, going from completed and cut piecesdscn5719to a quilt top (which still hasn’t seen an iron!)58-dscn5807It does need border(s?) and ideas are percolating……….

Kaffe and Linen Triangles came back from the quilter on Thursday, binding was attached on Friday/Saturday and is being stitched down as you read this – ’twill be finished today!57-dscn5806I’m loving the Tula Pink backing, and the quilting pattern; so simple but so effective.  It’s been quilted with a variegated thread which gives it an added depth too.  Very, very happy with this one.  Should be on our bed……..I was going to say “tonight” but it will be when the weather cools down and nights require a quilt!

So it’s over to you now.  C’mon, share what you’ve Substantially Progressed from your list! I know there’s been lots of sewing going on from your comments and emails.

If you have a blog, please add your link below; if you don’t have a blog, list your month’s achievements in the comments, or add a post to Instagram with the hashtag #17ufosin2017  Can’t wait to see what everyone has done!  And if you missed out on posting last month, please join in this month – we’d love to have you along on the challenge.
