And just like that another quilt top is completed.
I am trying to complete some of those half-finished projects. Pretty sure this one was started 20+ years ago.
While I remember that it was BOM, I have no memory of hand-sewing these blocks together. None whatsoever. It was during a rather dark time in my life, when I have fairly large missing time blocks for various reasons.
Pretty sure this BOM was from Jo Ann fabrics. I believe dead husband #1 bought me them as gifts (Don’t be shocked, I deal with my “situation” with humor). I didn’t have them all and remember buying the rest of them on clearance, including the setting kit. Odd that I can remember all those details, but not hand sewing them.
While it does not look bad, I would say that it is not really my style. It is very traditional, which is not my usual path. Don’t get me wrong, I like it, I just can’t imagine wanting to make that quilt now. I tend to be unable to follow directions, and always veer off the intended path in some way.
I am preparing for a retreat later in March and starting to look for projects to take along and this was starting at me, begging to be completed.
Every box I opened revealed some other “Chinese Spy Balloon”, oh wait I mean UFO.
At this point, I would imagine 20+ half-done projects. One of them I will take to the retreat with me. It was one of those “Cake Mix” patterns by Moda. It is scrappy so we will see how it turns out. I do not have the original photo of what it is supposed to look like, so I will be winging that.
Yep, I have a dog batting box, just for them. Ruger seems to enjoy spending quality time with Mom.
