UFO completed for September


September was a busy month, but I’m pleased to report that I managed to get another UFO done in spite of the full schedule.  Of course, it helped that this month’s selection was a small project!
The pattern is Java Jazz, one of Marjorie Rhine’s continuous line appliqué patterns.  When I saw this, I knew I had to try it out.  Since we make two appliqués each time the pattern is cut out, I had four coffee cups to work with.  
three cups
Three of the cups were used for the long wall-hanging.  The most important thing I learned from this piece was that even if all the fabrics are black and white, one still should not try to select fabrics in poor light!  (All whites are not created equal!).

one cup
I think I like the single cup with the scrappy coloured border better,  But I am pleased with both pieces, and I’m especially pleased that they are FINISHED and ready to hang on the wall.

We quilters are so smart - I threw in some really quick projects to finish on my list also. Love this little wall hanging. Judy C

Oh, I love them both! I do know what you mean about whites, though. I had a similar experience with a baby quilt recently. lol Congratulations on a wonderful finish!

I think black and whites can be remarkably hard to mix together. Both your quilts look great, and like they'll be fun ones to hang someplace! Congrats!
