Hugs and Kisses is now complete:)
I'm not sure if I should be doubly embarrassed, or doubly happy, or maybe both.
Hugs and Kisses was made as a mystery quilt a few years ago at a retreat with Quilts, Etc. in Sandy, Utah.
We did not know the quilt we would be making or the fabric choices.
At the beginning of the retreat each person is given a number. When your number is called you have about a minute to run up to the table and grab a bundle of fabric.
Then you run back to your sewing machine and start working on the first instruction page. Once that page is complete, you go back and get page #2.
By the last page, you begin to see what your final quilt will look like.
Can you see the X (in white) and the O (in orange)?
It also looks a little bit like Tic Tac Toe.
This summer I have set the goal to seriously work on UFO's.
Most of my unfinished projects have been placed in a big plastic bin.
With a little fear, I've peeked under the lid.
I admit I suffer from a case of Quilters ADD, and seeing those unfinished projects has brought forth twinges of guilt.
I've decided to change my attitude and to think of them as new presents instead!
"Better late than never!"
More this next week of those little surprises in the bin.
