The end of July means it's time for another 17ufosin2017 report.
I missed reporting on my UFO projects at the end of June, but my July report will be identical to what I would've reported in June!
One of my most ambitious projects for 17ufosin2017 was to assemble all these Sawtooth Star and Uneven 9-Patch blocks. I got that accomplished, only to realize the quilt was not going to be the size I expected. What can I say, sometimes long-term projects play tricks on your memory!
I did not have the willpower to make another big batch of stars and 9-patches, so I decided to add a border of Flying Geese to help reach my desired size. I made about 90 of these FG blocks, so now they need to be pieced together and attached. I'll finish this quilt eventually!
Another 17ufosin2017 project is to get the binding on this Scrap Jar Star quilt. I did get the binding made and machine-stitched to the front, but I still need to do the hand-stitching part. I confess I have a mental block against stitching bindings down in the summertime. My house is air conditioned, so I really can't say it's too hot to have a quilt on my lap. Maybe it's the lack of appropriate television programming in the summer? (i.e. I get lots of quilt binding done during American football season!)
I've also made some progress on the Nae Shawl over the past two months. This one is kind of tedious, because it's mostly stockinette stitch and only gets decreased one stitch per round (front and back). I'm down to about 40 stitches, so the rounds go quickly. Once it's bound off I'll have to find a place to block it where the cat and dogs won't pester it.
I'm looking forward to seeing what progress others have made on their 17ufosin2017. Check out the link-up at Meredithe's blog to see what's being worked on!
