Number 2 was drawn by Patchwork Times for the November UFO goal.
My number 2 is to do something with the Brazilian embroidery piece that I finished back in the year 2012.
I have decided to make it into a pillow.

My goal for October was to work on my Aunt Bea’s Parlor embroidery project.
I wanted to finish the embroidery, and get the blocks squared up and the corner triangles added.
All but the last block are finished in the photo below. All are sewn together, except the last row.
I am liking this!
I even have the first round of borders sewn…a bonus for me, as I didn’t expect to get this far this month.

Thanks to Slow Sunday Stitching yesterday, I finished embroidering the 20th (and last) block!
I also sewed the last row to the rest of the blocks, and put the top border on.
I’m pretty happy with the progress of this project!
Patchwork Times drew the number 6 for the October UFO goal.
My number 6 is the Aunt Bea’s Parlor embroidery quilt project. I have already made quite a bit of progress on this one, since I decided to work on it for my Slow Sunday Stitching project.
I have completed the embroidery for 17 out of 20 blocks. Woohoo!
So my goal for October is to finish the embroidery on the last three blocks. I want to get the blocks squared up and add the corner triangles to them.
I think this may be as far as I get, since the last three months of the year are the busiest work months at my day job.

For September, Patchwork Times drew number 4 from the UFO list. My number 4 is the same as my number 5 goal was…the friendship round robin project. I knew I would need lots of time (I need lots of time to complete almost anything)!
You can read about this friendship strip round robin quilt here, here, and here.
I left off working on this project in March. I was sewing four patches together for borders.
My goal for September is to get the borders sewn onto the quilt top and have a completed flimsy.

The number 8 was drawn by Patchwork Times, as the monthly goal for August.
My number 8 goal was to do something with some machine applique floral sample blocks.
I squared the blocks to 12-1/2″.
Triangles were added to set the blocks on point.
After squaring and setting the blocks on point, I decided to turn them into autumn placemats.
I kept the quilting simple; straight lines, echo, and meandering (I’m not making Van Gogh or Picasso art pieces after all). Here’s a look at the back:
I’ll be gifting these placemats…it feels good to have turned the blocks into something useful!

Patchwork Times announced the number 8 as the UFO goal for August.
My number 8 is these floral blocks:
I stitched these 3 blocks many moons ago when I was teaching a machine applique class.
What to do…pillows…, a table runner…, a wall hanging…, tote bags?

Patchwork Times drew the number 12 for the ufo project in July. My project was to come up with a plan to finish blocks that were given to me when I served as President of my local quilt guild.
Way back in 2001.
I came up with a plan!
I’ve got backing, batting and sashes cut.
And I had a great time sewing each block into an individual ‘page’. What a pleasant trip down memory lane as I worked on each one!
I ran out of grommets, so this will have to wait until I can get some more. Meantime, I do have to finish quilting the blocks.
I’m going to have an awesome (and big) memory book!
