HI all!! Can you stand just one more picture of this quilt?? Most of you will recognize the blocks from Bonnie's Quiltville mystery from this holiday season...but I set them differently, and did a different border too...the original border was all on point and bias, and I am too stretchy a kind of gal!! So, I made this one...and really like it!! I would really like to thank Bonnie, for stretching my wings a bit, and coaxing us ever so gently into making a brown, and red, and pink, and green quilt!! I really love it...it grows on me, and I have left it out all day to admire all the colors. This kind of reminds me of Prickly Pear Cactus, so that is the name of my quilt.
The border...you will see is the leftover pieces and parts from the original border, plus extra parts I made too...it was such fun piecing!!!
Now, down to the business of the year!! I am supposed to be working on UFO's.. but Bonnie's quilt is the first one I wanted to finish. I am supposed to finish number 6...this is a snowball and nine patch quilt on my list. Funny thing is, I have no memory of these fabrics whatsoever or cutting this out...now this was not so long ago!! That memory thing kind of scares me...but it also means I learn new things every day...LOL!!! I think the memory thing will get better when the thyroid is fixed. Anyway, I dragged the number 6 UFO box out and laid it out, and discovered that all the blocks are made, and I just have to sew them together. This will be a donation quilt, which is double good for me...a UFO conquered and a giving too...
Have a great day!!
