The first BOM lead to another and the adventure began. But now she had a stack of blocks and too many other ideas she was anxious to try -- the blocks were set aside. (Her very first UFO.)
Then, a few years later at the siren call of "The Babes" (grandsons) there was a big move to another state. While many household items were left behind, not much left behind was from the sewing/quilting room. (And by now there were more UFOs.)
Fast forward 5 more years: American Patchwork & Quilting issued a challenge for 2018....complete 12 UFO projects this year. The now-happy woman signed up. (Read January 8, 2018 and February 10, 2018.)
Each month a number is published on their Facebook page. That number corresponds to the number on your UFO list. That is your assignment that month. May was #6.
Here it is July, but FINALLY, my #6 is ready for the quilter.
The layout is not any particular pattern. My quilting friend, the "other Charlotte", has a computer program that will figure out layout and fabric requirements.
How cool is that!
Recognize the triangle setting blocks and the outer border fabric? I've used this fabric in other projects, one being my Nephew's Tee-Shirt Quilt.
You just can't beat a good blender! I did have to search the internet to find more of this fabric. The original yardage was purchased in Portland at Fabric Depot a year ago.
That is why it is always a good idea to keep the a piece of the salvage with fabric information.
|The result is both BOM blocks combined|
This will be for my sister; for her birthday later this month. She mentioned a few years ago she wished she had a quilt big enough for her bed....this should do the job nicely; 80" X 124.
I realize it is pretty long. I didn't pay attention to the layout...oh well, it is long enough to go up over the pillows when (if ?) she makes her bed.
Because I didn't pay attention, I ended up with two blocks left over.
|Quilters do not make mistakes, they make variations...and pillows.|
Happy Birthday, Peanut.
