plan B for current UFO

well, the backing is pieced but, I found 4 holes in it!
I can't work around them easily for this quilt
I've decided to use this backing for a smaller quilt

I found another fabric to use and it'll have to be washed first

the current plan is to wash the plan B fabric Sunday and see how much it shrinks

there is no quilting thread color problem with the plan B backing fabric
the backing no longer coordinates with the binding fabric
I'll get over it
the binding is made and I'm not changing it

I'll try to check back in tomorrow with an update!

current UFO

I picked a UFO out on Thursday
I washed the backing Thursday
I measured the top Friday
and today, Saturday, I'm sewing a seam in the backing

I'm still debating thread color

I'll try to get a picture of the top up as soon as possible

life threw us a curve ball and we're dealing with it
I still want to reduce my UFO's this year

I'm currently working on a new quilt, a scrappy quilt and about to start a jelly roll race quilt

I need to pick a UFO and start working on it
I hope to work on it until it's finished!
