2016 APQ UFO Challenge List

Off to the races

At our bee workday on Monday, we had a jelly roll challenge/race. We had planned for a while and were set to start after lunch. In advance, we prepped our strips by sewing them all together and winding a couple bobbins. I decided to use a Bali Pop for my challenge, I pulled out the brightest one I have, as last spring I was really wishing to have something bright and cheery on the couch by about the middle of March. Jack was our photographer during the race. 

Here are all the strips ready to go! 

Round one....sewing the longest strip sets we've ever sewn! 

Somewhere in the midst of the frenzy of sewing! 

The finished tops :)
Here's a full album of pictures from the afternoon so you can see up close if you want. Please remember that our photographer for much of the afternoon was a first time camera wielding 4 1/2 year old!

wow, looks like a lot of fun. i have only done one *actually Dawn and I sew it together* took about an hour, the jelly roll I used didn't have enough different fabrics and the top looks like it needs some applique to spruce it up.

Looks like a great time and what a wonderful sewing space. Cheryl, that's a great idea to add applique.

First of all...kudos to your photographer!!! He did GREAT! I am going to have to add this project to my list. I have seen them online once or twice and get more interested in them every time I see them!
