Mending My Ways

I love to quilt. I love to sew. I hate to mend or alter. There I have fessed up! Needless to say, I am way behind on my mending. So, in order to mend my ways (and clothes), I have decided that UFO Sundays must include some form of mending or altering. Of course, it will also include some quilty UFO (or USO = UnStarted Object).

Today I'm working on my Elephant quilt. The one I started back in October, because I was tired of working on UFO's .

This block is kind of like a peek under the big top. Click here to see how I constructed the block.
I like how the Navy and the Dark Teal alternate sides

There will be five blocks in total, the rest will be Navy and a teal print. I think this will look cool when it all comes together. I'm planning on this being a Queen sized quilt when completed.

Sew the big question is, did I do any mending? Yup, I sure did. These are some pants from Coldwater Creek that I picked up last fall. How the heck did both hems fall out??? Any way, they are all fixed

Today I'm linking up with The Free Motion Project for UFO Sunday!
