UFO and some new

 Pat Sloan has a UFO challenge on her blog here and this tablerunner is the one I picked to finish in January.
I just have the binding and a label yet to finish.  I have put photos on instagram and I will do a blog post of this with photos when it is finished!
I can only work on UFOs so long and I need to start something new....anyone else like that?

I have been using my GO to cut up strips of a lot of my fabrics that have been sitting around for years.  I need to get these used up and out of here.  I need more space for new stuff!  hee..hee!  Today I am trying a new block.  I sewed 2 1½" strips to a 2½" strip and then cut on diagonal.

I have been searching for different things to do with strips.  Last weekend I set up a linky so this next weekend is when it will start.  I sure hope it works.  I would like to know what others are doing with their strips.

Since my word for the year is accomplish....I want to accomplish and learn new things.  So the linky is something I have wanted to do for awhile....got that done.  Also...I was trying to figure out how to put instagram photos on my blog....discovered an instagram widget....got that done.  I still marvel at technology and all of the possibilities.

Smiles and hugs....Caryl

  1. I love using my 'strips' and 'strings' on scrap quilts for donation quilts. I'll stop back on the weekend!

  2. Great ideas on cutting fabric into strips. I should be doing that, too. I am overflowing.. :) It's nice to get UFO's finished, isn't it?

  3. I can hardly get around to my projects these days, let alone tackle those strips. Maybe I need a Go cutter....LOL

  4. What a pretty table runner and I'm like you......several projects always going on! Thanks for sharing.
