I did actually get to sew some today. Not as much as I planned, but I got side tracked organizing my sewing stuff. I got a lot of the cleaning/organizing done and then started to cut fabric down to 2 1/2" strips. Rather than keep random amounts of fabric, I'm going to start cutting them down. For now I'm only doing 2 1/2" strips, as I can use jelly roll patterns with those. Once I get more of my fabrics cut down and am organizing my scraps better, I'll cut other sizes too.
Cutting the fabric made me think of my dad's Christmas quilt. It is UFO's 10, 11, and 12 on Judy's list (piecing, quilting, finishing). Since #10 was drawn this month, I need to get it all pieced this month. So tonight seemed like a good opportunity to work on it. Plus, someone mentioned on their blog that today was the February Christmas Quilt-A-Long, so working on the blocks would kill two birds with one stone. However, the Christmas Quilt-A-Long is actually next week :).
My dad's quilt is Bonnie Hunter's Star Struck pattern. I started it over a year ago when I took her workshop. Well, tonight I got several strip sets made and cut down to 4 1/2". I started adding the corner blocks and have run out of 2 bobbins, so I'm going to call it a night. I'm hoping to get some more work done tomorrow on it :-).
