WooFa for January

January was CHaLLenGe month #1...

I made the binding AnD the label earlier in the month...

This quilt top had been finished for quite a  l-o-n-g  time but needed to be quilted... & I was NeVeR going to get to do it. I sent it off to Fiona earlier this month for custom quilting... & by the way it's wonderful... so I got to actually ADD the binding & the label this month.


Although it's been hidden away until now, the quilt is now ready for next Xmas... but ... as it's been waiting for YeARs... another 11 months won't hurt.

The Night Before Christmas quilt is finally completed...
so that's 1 project ticked off  The WOOFA LIST... ✔
AnD
also an item for 1XiAM too... found HeRe.

AND... I also made a gOOd start on Miss S's quilt this month too...
I had the fabric picked out... the backgrounds cut & the 2 x sashing strips all labelled... but hadn't started any of the applique'.


During the month I traced out the most of the templates... then I fused appropriate fabric for the large center piece block & completed the blanket stitching on it as well...


Then I worked on Blocks 6 & 8 and I'm happy to report....they're finished too...


so GReaT progress was made on another challenge this month as well.

SoMe ReLieF

Australia is in the hardest drought & fire season anyone can remember...
but some welcome & much needed rain fell from the skies over the weekend...
  YiPPee

I started my sewing off with a couple of STRinG BLocKs...


Then I worked on another "scrap" project.
A few sets of bowl covers for the annual Quilt Guild Sale Table.
I actually made the GReeN set at FNSI...but this time worked on the checker fabric.
If you would like to make OnE... or a FeW for yourself...
the FREE instructions can be found HeRe.

No more hot fingers for the new owner...

On Friday night at Friday Night Sew In... hosted by Wendy...HeRe...
I used up some scrap fabric and made a set of reversible bowl covers.
It's always a pleasure to sit & sew with like minded online friends .

Oh WHaT FuN...

it is to start a NeW project.
This is such a CoLouRFuL project to work on at the moment... AnD FuN too.
Once finished, it will have to wait until Santa is on his way again in about 11 months time... scary thought...
... but for now... I'm still playing with it  ...

My PLaN iS...

to continue using up as many scraps as I can this year... 
although this time they aren't GReeN... 
instead, choosing colour strips that are the correct length.
Simple but effective ... QAYG - STRinG BLocKs...


I'm linking this scrap "CHaRiTy" project to...

RSC

I joined Angela's 2020 Rainbow Scrap Challenge again this year.
You can read all about it...  HeRe
This year I'm making interlocking Chain Link blocks for a wheelchair quilt.
I'm ONLY using scraps... so that means not even cutting into a FaT of fabric.
Even the background will be off cuts... so no yardage purchased or used at all.

This first month the colour GReeN is featured... ohhh it's my favourite colour too...
AnD... as I'll need a few repeat blocks... I made 2 x 12 inch blocks this month.

HeaD BanDs

DD#1 asked me to make her & GD#1 a few wire head bands.
I ended up making 16 ... in several different colours... & in small & large sizes.


There were other colours but DD#1 took them home before I could grab a photo.

NOTE:  I've had enquiries about the type of wire I used... unfortunately DD had some on hand that worked but I don't know where it came from... sorry... 😞

STaRTinG "WooFa" & FNWF

It's a new month... in a new year ... so I've picked my WOOFA project for January.

WOOFA... Working On Or Finishing A... 
project or UFO
You can read all about this "challenge"... HeRe
AnD it's NoT too late to join in either...

I've chosen #1... the Night Before Christmas wall quilt this month.
I sent the top to Miss Fiona (earlier)  to custom quilt it as it's been hanging around here for years & I was NeVeR going to get to it.
I'll need to add the binding once it's returned... so I 'll make it now & have it all ready & waiting.
I think I'll make the label as well... so my 1st challenge has started... yippee...

How about you?    Will you be ready this month to start your WOOFA challenge...?
I'll show my progress by the end of the month.


Last night at FNwF... I made another ELF cushion.
DD#2 wanted one as she LoVeD my JoLLy the Elf... shown last month... HeRe
This little JoLLy FeLLa has a long wait until next December though...
