UFO No. 2
December 2, 2009 § 15 Comments
Two down, four more UFO’s to go for the Joy in the New Year Challenge. This wasn’t really a lanquishing UFO. But it was a WIP that I was determined to finish by the end of the year because I want to give it to one of my sisters-in-law for Christmas. The whole thing was a block-of-the-month through my local quilt shop. And the blocks were generally this bright. But I didn’t always use the fabrics that they provided. And my sister-in-law likes pink, so I wanted to add enough to make it feel pink.
I sent it out to be quilted and it came back absolutely fabulous! I am SO happy with the quilting.
The backing fabric is a Gelato ombre from the Cara Collection by E.E. Schenck. I think it’s still around if you choose to do a little searching. And the pattern is the 12-block sampler from Victory Quilts by Eleanor Burns. There are some cute quilts in the book in addition to the samplers.
It’s slow going, but I am now heading onward to some older UFO’s that really have been lanquishing in a pile somewhere in the sewing room. I really want to see some Joy in the New Year. There are lots of new quilt ideas floating around in my head that I want to get started on… guilt-free, of course!
