UFO #3 March: FINISHED

I am slowly catching up with my UFO list.

One evening in 1990 I was at the library as it closed.  I quickly checked out my selected books and headed for the door.  As they locked the door behind me, I noticed a meeting of some sort in a room outside the library-proper, but still in the building.  I looked in - and they were showing quilts to one another!!  I had happened upon "Quilt Chat" and they invited me in.  This group met monthly and was a very loosely organized group of ladies.  Each summer, however, we would do some sort of exchange or round-robin event.


These homespun 4-patches were part of an exchange we had sometime in the 1990's.

I am pleased with the result!  I was afraid that it would be very "Country" as that was the style in Texas in the 90's.  As I put it together, however, I really liked the bold colors and the disparate plaids.

It was a little hard to get a picture today - with the wind.

I plan to have this quilt top quilted by a dear friend who is in the process of purchasing a long-arm machine.  I hope it will be a good top for her to start with.





I end up in the yard often, in the spring.  This slows down my quilting - but has some good results:



 And the holly trees attracting a swarm of butterflies last week.
 

I love spring!

  1. I love the way the sashing sets off your homespun blocks. It would really look country without the sashing. Your yard is beautiful.
