What good does it do me to finish quilts off my UFO list if I’m just going to start more? Yes, I’m being a good girl and counting this as three quilts. I’m making Disappearing 9-Patches using recycled shirts. Each quilt will have a different center square. The orange one will be roughly 65″ x 80″ for a twin bed and the other two will be roughly 80″ x 95″.
For each quilt I’m cutting 4 squares from each quilt. Some of the fabric is in all of the quilts, some is just in two of the quilts, and I think there is at least one shirt that I just had enough to cut 4 squares. My squares are cut 5-1/2″.
While I’m at it, I’m also cutting fabric for Rectangle Wrangle from Bonnie Hunter’s Scraps and Shirttails II. I started cutting these back when I was finishing up Checkerboard Plaids and starting Nifty Thrifty and now have 101 strips and I think only 1 is a duplicate. But I have a way to go, I need at least 300 strips, so perhaps I should have been cutting 2 from each shirt.
Well, these three bring my UFO Count to 64. Perhaps I can find something small to finish over the long weekend.
