UFO Time... QAYGo Crazy9P

How did it get to be Wednesday AGAIN ALREADY???! I didn't realize when I bought that last 2012 calendar that I had bought a "fast one"!

It is definitely UFO time around here. The QAYG Crazy Nine Patch quilt - below -  has been on the back burner so long that I don't even remember when I started it ... 2006, 2007, 2004? Who knows. Long enough that I no longer remember my orginal "plan".
QAYG Crazy 9 Patch
So far it is set with 7 rows of 5 blocks each. The piecing is totally wonky and deliberately hap-hazard. This was a fun and liberating group of blocks to make. The blocks are layered and machine quilted across the seams with a serpentine stitch. Each block is made as a separate unit. Then the blocks are joined with sashing strips. Very easy and a good technique when one's space is limited as mine has been. The borders will be added the same way.... now I need to get busy and do just that. It is July's project.

That's all for today. Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Until next time. . .

Quilty Hugs,

PS: Good news: Received a lot of "atta-girls" from my doctor at this week's visit. Have lost >6 pounds, and my lab results have improved! This has all happened just since June 20th! I have been almost 100% compliant with the new plant-based eating regime. I'm having fun with it.  THANKS again to all of you who have written to me with support and encouragement... it has been a HUGE help!
More "menu fun" and pictures to follow next time.

Wow! Atta-girl to you! Congrats on the numbers. I know that feeling, as mine all (except weight, which samed) improved at my last visit too.

Nice to know I'm not the only one, plugging away at UFOs! :-)

Cyn - I think I gots one of them thar "fast" calendars, too!



Cathy said...

If wonky is liberating I need to try doing something wonky!

Congrats on weight loss. Is the plant diet for medical reasons? Or maybe I need to read previous posts to find out;-)

You know Cyn I bought that same calendar!!! LOL I think your UFO has definitely aged enough and can't wait to see it finished with Missy sitting on it! I actually have a QAYG to finish but fortunately the blocks are much bigger! Thanks for sharing!
