february finish


after having these pillow tops lying around for a couple of weeks, I finally got off my rear-end and finished them up (thanks to the encouragement from fellow members of Men Who Quilt). I actually had one more planned that I wanted to get done before tackling the zippered-backs, but for some reason just couldn't get it started. I guess I didn't have it fully figured out in my mind.

 
now I can start a new project knowing I at least finished SOMETHING from my pile of UFOs!

this weekend I really should start working on creating and adding zippered pillow backs before the pillow fronts start to pile up. yesterday I finished #4:

 
#3 is ready to go:


 
and #2 is assembled:


in the meantime, I have my TV watching project (read into that watching the Olympics) with the Seamless Hybrid I started on Christmas day. I still haven't finished the Urban Aran Cardigan, all that's left is adding the zipper. the two zippers I bought for it were wrong..one is not a separating zipper and both are too long, so I need to go back and get a shorter size.
