Let’s Bee Social #90
Rarely is there a time when I start something quilty without finishing it. When I began quilting, I made myself a promise that I would always finish what I was working on before starting something new. And for the most part, I have kept that promise.
But today I opened a box that had been stuck way up on the very top of the top shelf. Inside was a lonely little work in progress, that had not had much progress made on it at all. I think it was not turning out like the grand dream I had envisioned. So it was relegated to “up there”.
I did a search of my blog archive to see just how long that box had been “up there”. Turns out it was one year ago during Let’s Bee Social #37, that I had mentioned I was watching the Gossip Girl series on DVD with my daughter. Two weeks later during the Let’s Bee Social #39, I talked about my fascination with a set of chair cushions from the set of Gossip Girl.
During my move last week, when I brought everything from “up there, over there and under there” into my newly painted sewing space, I discovered just what was in that box. Today I opened my box containing my only UFO. And there it was….
Pieces of this Gossip Girl inspired unfinished project. Strips and bits. I do love the fabrics. These are strips of Kona Snow and what remains of my Riley Blake Basic Shades that I purchased from Mad About Patchwork back in February 2014. I had originally planned to paper piece this baby. But you all know I’m not a paper piecer. So I came up with a different plan. And drew up a colouring page to go with.
Triangles I can do.
Even the off cuts are too pretty to go to waste. Or back into a box. They will be incorporated. Somehow.
Making progress on this lonely UFO today!
