UFO Update Plus the last Nov Bee Block

I had been updating the post where I listed my UFOs, but I think it might be more entertaining to give you all a play by play. So I deleted all the changes I had made so that list is in it's original form.

Here is what I have actually done...

I did most of the quilting on my Beginner RR at my UFO Sweatshop night at the local Quilt Shop, The Quilter's Studio. It still needs to be bound.

Knot Block Quilt 1 and my Black and Brights top have already returned from Margaret's and they are wonderful! Both still need trimmed and bound. Knot Block Quilt 2 has had the blocks pieced, but I still need the borders cut and sewn on. Plus I have to find a backing fabric large enough for it.

Both my Purple and White top and my Blue and White/Yellow are ready for the quilters. So I marking them off as done. I need to save up some cash and send them to the quilters after Christmas.

Swap L'Orange is what I am currently working on and hope to finish this Friday at UFO Sweatshop night. Each of the 20 blocks has one half of it's sashing attached, so it should not take too much longer.

I dug out the Triple Four Patch top and found a backing fabric (still needs cut to size). I also hope to use up some pieces of batting so I need to seam those for this quilt./ Maybe I can get it ready for quilting on Friday night.

I did get both the Scrappy Rail Fence blocks and the Spring Fling String blocks out of the chaos that is my sewing room, so I might start playing with layouts this week.

Overall, I have moved to the next step in 9 of my 10 UFOs and have 3 that only need binding and two I consider done (for now). If I got my binding butt in gear over the next few days I could be half done. Woohoo!!!

My last set of blocks for November are the Sew Kid @ Heart II Bee. littletykesmom has us make blocks from firemen fabric for her son.
