UFO for October 2012

I was delighted to see that the number drawn for October was for a quilt that I completed in May!  That gave me a chance to finish something else instead.

I needed a quilt for someone special so I selected a nine-patch chain from my very healthy stack of “tops to be quilted”.  I’m guessing this one was pieced about 10 years ago, as the youngest fabrics that I recognize are from Year 2000 collections.  Other fabrics are older – there are pieces from family scrap bags dating back through the 90s and there is at least one piece that is more than 50 years old.

The border fabric came from well-aged stash, and the last bit of it went onto the back along with a few other pieces that had been sitting on the shelf for too many years.


It feels so good to have this on its way to be used and enjoyed.

So cool that you've included a 50 year old fabric from the family scrap bag :)

So nice to be done ahead of schedule. Takes the pressure off...which we all need, right? I'm excited that I have the last two done for 2012. Time now to work on some that aren't classified as UFOs YET.... Happy Halloween. Nice project Louisa. Sandi

So pretty! Love the chains connecting your 9 patches. Congrats on wiping out some aging stash and making a beautiful gift to be cherished.
