May UFO Complete


The May commitment for my 2011 UFO Challenge is complete.  This is the most complicated stitchery of the ones I need to complete by the end of the year.  It is not the largest, however.


This one is called the "Candy Cane Clothesline."  I like this one.  Embroidering those snowflakes is kind of a pain.  The next stitchery isn't going to have any snowflakes.  That doesn't mean I'm finished with them, however.

Also, I completed the 12-inch and 9-inch "Double X" blocks.  I still need to do a 6-inch one of these.



I'm so much farther along with this quilt than I ever expected to be at this point in time.  Thanks to Judy for coming up with the UFO Challenge.  Otherwise, I'd still be where I was at the beginning of the year . . . still working on the first stitchery, and having none of the blocks complete.  As it is, I'm a month ahead on the stitcheries.  Insurance, you know.

Beautiful work, Barbara! The stitchery is lovely, but the precision piecing is just awesome! I can never quite get mine to look that good!

I am working on the same block but I still have a lot to do. I have the tree on the left and some of the snowflakes. The snowflakes are not fun!

Love all the blues. The stitching is great and the blocks are beautiful. Congrats on keeping up with the challenge.

Each one of these stitcheries & star blocks makes me more anxious to see it when you're all finished!
Congrats on being a bit ahead of the game. :D
