Lisa's UFO Challenge: March 2016

The project number selected for March in the #APQResolution UFO Challenge is #3. So this month, I will be working on "Where the Wild Things Are".

One of my all time favorite children's books is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I love the story, and never get tired of looking at the illustrations. So when I found a collection of Where the Wild Things Are themed fabrics a few years ago, I had to have them. I didn't have a plan for what to do with them, and I still don't. All of the fabrics have been laundered and pressed.

My goal for March is to come up with a plan for what to do with these fabrics. The five fabrics shown in the front I would like to make into a quilt, so I will plan on looking through some books and online for some inspiration, and decide on a pattern. If I get to cutting & piecing, that would be an added bonus!

The other fabric (the yellow one on top) is flannel, which I had bought at the same time with the thought of making into pajama bottoms or a bath robe (though I did just discover a label in the selvage stating "do not use for children's sleepwear" - should this worry me?). So I also want to find a pattern to use for this fabric.



  1. Children's sleepwear in the US is supposed to be non-flammable so regular cotton often has this warning on it--you can make PJs for yourself from it without worry. FYI, the federal rules about this are at

  2. Interesting, thanks for that info Mary. That makes sense to me now - I was scratching my head wondering if there could be anything harmful in the fabric, which I couldn't quite imagine to be true.
