April UFO

In an effort to finish up some of my older (and neglected) UFOs, I am participating in the APQResolution UFO Challenge.  At the beginning of the year, I made a list of 12 projects and each month, American Patchwork picks a number, and that is the project you work on for the month.  You may not finish your item but hopefully you at least make some progress on it.

So far this year, I have scratched 3 items off my list!

For April, the number 11 was pulled so I will be getting this project out and dusting it off.  There is a LOT of work to do on this one!   It is actually two projects I am mashing together into one.  The floral applique blocks are from a project I started about a decade ago.  The Basketweave blocks I made using this paper-pieced pattern from Craftsy

If you are hesitant on trying foundation (paper) piecing, I use Carol Doak's method.  I still pull up sections of her Craftsy class for a refresher if I am working on something more detailed.  I find it to be a great resource.

But before I can start working on a layout, I guess I will be spending my next few evenings finishing up the needle turn applique on a few blocks!

I am looking forward to seeing that quilt when it is all together.

These two projects work together very nicely. Have fun merging them.

Find something good to watch (or listen to) on TV and do your applique work that way. It will be lovely!

I bet these two projects will merge beautifully in your capable hands!

I like the idea of numbering all my WIPs then just randomly drawing a number and getting back to it. Your quilt is coming along nicely. I love those stars!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and progress on this quilt. I like how everything is coming together so far. I am anxious to see what you put with it.

'Mashing' two projects together is a smart way to go when working with UFO's! I love the basket weave blocks!

Very pretty blocks. Good luck with your UFO this month.
