This is a long term UFO for me. I am playing the UFO game with the gals from Country Threads. This month we are supposed to be working on quilt #1 of our list. I did a little swap and worked on this one instead. It’s actually my #3 UFO. My brother and his wife are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary at the end of the month and I thought this quilt would make a perfect gift.
I tried and tried to get good photos to show off the colors but they just aren’t quite right. I have to say in person, the color combo looks really nice. I used a funky feathers free motion design. I remember being so terrified to try this design…now, it’s easy. I used a charcoal thread on top and the variegated thread from Ila on the back. (Thanks Ila!!)
The pattern was a block of the month from some time ago. There was an online place called Two Studios…then I think it got changed to Three Studios. I couldn’t find a link. Sorry.
This quilt ended up as UFO because of my inability to make decisions. Each month we got a block pattern. Then all of sudden at month nine they sent out three more blocks and about six different finishing options. It was too much too fast for me. Then I let it sit….you know what happens once you leave a UFO sit too long, right?? You have to find a matching fabric as they no long have the original fabric you were using. Yep, that’s what happened. No fabric to match giving me even more decisions to make.
I have to say, I do love the setting blocks.
Hopefully they’ll like their quilt….Ruby sure did.
We also have a quilt book giveaway going on here.
