Progress, Continued

I finally figured out a way to post pictures again, but it's not the way I normally do it. This is probably better and easier in the long run, but sometimes I'm slow when it comes to change.

As I said in a previous post, I've been a busy quilter the last couple of days and have decided to get a jump on some of those UFOs that are hanging around here. Since I still have to make class samples, and there is always a new project that just begs to be made, I will not be working exclusively on UFOs, but I do plan to put a real dent in the Tub of Shame.

After completing the Radiant Rainbows top, I decided to make a Simply a Pleasure table runner. I'm planning to offer this as a class during the next series and I usually like to make a couple of samples so I am very familiar with the pattern. I haven't made the placemats yet, but I will. I'll probably make another set soon, because I really like to have a couple of very different "looks." This helps potential students visualize the pattern in different colorways, etc. This version is very similar to the pattern cover, but I'm thinking of making another one in red, white and blue.

After the table runner was done (it was very quick, although I still need to quilt it) I went back to the Tub of Shame and pulled out this kids UFO. I just need to add borders and then it too is ready for quilting.

Well, I decided on the borders and they are on. Check out the picture below. I even have the binding ready! Now to just get that backing ready...

I had a tub of shame a couple of yrs ago - I spent a year just plowing thru it, passing some on to others to finish. I will never let things get that far out of hand again!
