And the next project on the UFO list is.....

I have tried very hard to  finish
half-started project off of my
UFO list this year.

Of course, I could not resist beginning
another project, so I started the
Be My Neighbor quilt at

I have made 6 of the 10 blocks
which have been published online.
The quilt will have a total of
16 blocks in 4 rows.

The third block
(blue house in upper right)
and the fifth block
(house with heart)
have an appliqued bird,
which I have not added yet.

I am debating whether to
applique by hand or machine.

I am making the blocks from
a fabric line of very bright prints
(unusual for me to sew with).
The prints are made up of
dots, chevrons or diamond patterns

Today, for my
Slow Sunday Stitching, I will
be finishing the final full row
on my Trip Around the World quilt.
I think it is about 110 inch square.

It will have a finishing row of
the red dot print I have used
throughout the quilt. Next...
hand quilting it. The hand
quilting will begin
after the first of the year.

What are you
Slow Sunday Stitching?

Congrats on the almost finish on the trip. I have one started by hand too...... maybe it will come back out sometime soon. I too am trying to finish off a few UFO's.....
How do you plan to quilt it? I am not sure on mine - but thinking to follow the diamond design. I'll have to go search for quilting ideas.
