Let's Tackle Those UFOs!

Would you like to make progress on your pile of quilting UFOs and have fun at the same time?  Well, I've got just the thing for you!  It's time for a great blog hop to help you to conquer some of those unfinished projects! For the whole month of November, you can follow along with several quilt designers to see how we tackle our own stack of sewing projects.  We'll cover topics like UFO inventory (confession time!), Resume (finish up a project), Rework (turn an unfinished project into something else), and Rehome (pass it on to someone else to play with).  There will be plenty of ideas to get you motivated and inspired to dust off some of those old projects and get sewing! So let's get this party started! Here is the full schedule and links to each blog/website.

On the topic of fall, I'd like to tell you about my "Fabulous Fall" wall quilt.  It's a 16" square applique scene full of all the delightful details of a fall day.   This quilt actually came about because of a challenge we had at quilt guild.  We only had two guidelines:  make it 16" square, and have a pumpkin in it.  We could do anything el
