This weekend is UFO weekend in my yahoo quilting group.  While I only have a couple of UFOs (yes, I'm in denial) I did make a list in my last post on what I wanted to work on.  I am happy to announcement that I actually accomplished part of that list.

I managed to get the t-shirt blocks for Connie done and will take them to work with me on Monday as well as getting some t-shirt blocks cut out for me.  I've never made a t-shirt quilt before and while I didn't want to make a full quilt, I did decide to make a wall hanging out of NIU related t-shirts that I no longer wear for whatever reason.  I managed to get the top done and I have to say, I don't think it looks too bad.

Connie usually just puts fleece on the back but this will hang in my office on the wall for a little while and I didn't want to use fleece.  I was looking through my fabric and found a black and white fabric that my boss, Lyndon, brought back for me from Africa.  What do you think?  Think it would work?  It would be nice to use that since it too ties into NIU.  I hand washed it and now it is drying so I have the rest of tonight to decide if I will use it or not. 

Care to give your opinions on it?

Oh yes, before I forget.  I have also worked on the test pattern.  Had to go out and buy more embroidery floss...really...I just "had" to.  (grins)
