The quilt sharing continues…
While I was on quarantine I got so many quilts through the machine and gradually I’ve been able to show them off. Today it’s the day to show off Kelli’s Fair and Square quilt.
Kelli pieced the top. I machine quilted it and bound it for her.
Writing this blog post about it is about killing me. Just like it about killed me to do all the work on it. I WANT TO MAKE ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I can’t until I’ve finished up a few other Bonnie Hunter quilts. (Remember we’re doing UFO Wednesdays) I keep telling myself you can’t start another quilt. BUT OH I WANT TO!!
Isn’t is gorgeous??
Kelli left this one as a UFO and it languished for a long time. Finally I pushed her to finish it. Do you want to know what she had to do?? Sew on two of the already completed borders…oh my. I know I have LOTS of UFO’s but I never leave them when I’m that close.
I had originally thought that when I make one I’d do it in brights. Then I thought I would do it with my shirt prints….but then I saw one that Mary at Country Threads did. It looked a lot like Kelli’s version and then I knew that I wanted to do it with my Civil War scraps.
Oh but I have to wait and not start one….(or at least put it off for as long as I can)
Any way I look at it..I see gorgeous.
I love small and tiny pieces. I love strings. I have to make this quilt!!!
I will make this quilt.
I will make this quilt in the future…is it the future yet?? I hope so because I really want to make this quilt.
Kelli originally planned to give this one away. Then I said Kelli….”wait until you see it quilted”…and then she said “Yep. I am not giving that quilt away.”
The pattern can be found in Bonnie Hunter’s book Scraps and Shirttails II.
