In my defense ... !

I've been thinking about the number of quilting UFOs that remain undone and decided that I needed to do some math.

From 2007 until 2017 I started 258 quilting projects (queen size quilts to table runners) of which 50 remain undone. Oh, and in that 258 total, it does not include the numerous hand embroidered towels I have stitched and given as gifts.

Statistically, it means that I complete 81% of my projects! Yea, I'm a glass half full kind of gal! lol

Well, one can only work on quilting UFOs for so long until one has an uncontrollable desire to start a new project. Let's face it, I've been good at completing projects, many of which didn't have much done on it!

To deal with a bit of the guilt from starting something new when I still have UFOs lurking, I chose a wool kit I had purchased, oh ... probably around 2006 ... (ah, I was close, April 2007, thanks to blogging!) at The Quilted Crow. There, no more guilt! lol

Ta dah!

The pattern is called Bunny Luv Tablerunner by Pickering Farm. I do like how it turned out. However, I learned that I am not a fan of wool centers with cotton borders.

I was perplexed as to how I would finish the runner. Do I use batting?

I do not like flimsy borders, so I opted for a thin layer of cotton batting. With that, came the necessity to machine quilt so that the layers would be secured.

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy the moment! Cheers!

I have a lot of UFO's, and some I will finish soon, but I am in the make new things mood, and plan on finishing what I start, this time, lol. I do have a lot of old patterns that I want to make too, a bit at a time.
