As my son would say -- “Yeah, about that….”
At the beginning of the month the contents of the bag looked like this:
There are two batik New York Beauty blocks along with some fabrics that may or may not coordinate. This collection came from a UFO swap with friends a few years ago, and I was supposed to “do something” with it. I have an idea of what this could become, but at the end of the month, I’m afraid it looks exactly the same as it did.
I am going to claim a finish anyway. A donated Lonestar top turned up at our quilting group. Not the right size for a prayer quilt, and besides it would have been an absolute waste to simply put ties in something that complex. There was a fund-raiser auction coming up, so I took on the job of finishing the quilt for that. Here’s how it looked when it was done:
I’m guessing this had been in storage for a while before being donated. The colours take me back a decade or so. It has been beautifully pieced. I wonder about the story behind it – why it languished unfinished and then simply was donated.
Here is a close-up of the quilting on one of the plain setting squares. I used a variegated thread to give a bit of texture to the plain gray fabric.
