Judy L's UFO Challenge

Design Wall Monday

I've been working on my One Monthly Goal for April. I had rows of blocks pieced together when I set the goal. I figured out how big the quilt would be with the blocks i had at the point I purchased the UFO from the estate sale. I figured out how many blocks I would need to achieve my desired size then determined if i had enough fabric to make them.

Great news. I had enough. I cut the strips and then subcut them at a retreat a week ago. Over the past week I started making the blocks I needed completing them all today.

Because I made them in batches, I had enough blocks to make the remaining rows for two of the quadrants first. Saturday afternoon I completed the first.

Sunday morning I began working on the second quadrant. I was trying to hurry to finish it before company arrived.

Oops! I still had time to rip out the bad row and reattach it.

Better. After our Easter dinner with friends and family I decided to continue sewing. I finished the rest of the blocks then I sewed together the rows I had already made for the third quadrant. Three more rows to make and attach.

It looks like I'm on target to complete my goal this month.

I had a very small bleed in my surgical eye. I bent a little too far unintentionally and felt a little pop. Luckily it cleared up and did nit effect my vision. I have the right eye done Tuesday. This is the more troublesome of the two. I plan to be even more careful with this one during recovery.

Linking up with Patchworktimes for Design Wall Monday.

I love your setting for the bowtie blocks. It looks awesome in the read and white. Healing thoughts headed your way for your first and second procedure.

At the rate you are going you will have this top done by the end of the month. You are doing better than me. Being so tired from all the moving I am behind on my one monthly goal project. I have a couple of weeks to catch up so maybe I will make it.
