U.F.October 2014 - Did You Finish the Unfinished?

If someone could please just slow time down a tad I'd really appreciate it. October 31 already?!?!? Did anyone else blink and miss a few months?

U.F.October 2014 was a roaring success. I didn't finish everything I had set out to do, but still achieved more than I thought I would.

My main accomplishment was this quilt, that ended up being a lot more popular than I imagined (I have included a short tutorial at the end of this post).

Finally finished!!!
I was also pretty impressed with my progress on the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery BOM for 2013. I started with only five blocks done but managed to complete all 12 before the due date.

Final Block
The final block...PHEW
Unfortunately, I realised I had completed some of my earlier blocks incorrectly so I need to do a little block surgery. On a completely unrelated note, it's always advisable to confirm your right and wrong sides of fabric before stating. Particularly if your fabric is cream with a white back. 

All in all, I'm really happy with my progress. It was interesting to see how my motivation had changed once I set myself a public goal of finishing particular tasks. I'm also now keen to keep the ball rolling and finish the other items...maybe even a few UFOs that didn't make it to the original list. 

Thanks everyone for joining in. You can see other crafty projects through #ufoctober2014 on Instagram.

Tell me. Did you get through your U.F.October 2014 wishlist?
