Only the border blocks and the sashing have these two fabrics next to each other, but I don't want to go to all the work of making the quilt and not like it. So that means I have a lot of ripping out to do. I have to unsew 160 2-patches, 80 HSTs, 4 blocks and all of the sashing strips. I'm planning to work on it little by little at night while watching TV.
In the meantime, I've pulled out a couple of other UFO's, just in time for the Christmas season. Back in 2011, I started a Dresden Plate table runner and a wallhanging using a Layer Cake of Nature's Gift by Deb Strain. I had already finished piecing the table runner and started quilting it before putting it away. I'm planning to do most of the quilting using metallic thread (which I don't have much experience with!)
FYI - I'm making this quilt. It was a free pattern that came inside Moda Candy Bar boxes back in 2010 or so.
I was obviously confident of finishing way back then because I even made labels for the quilts that included the date. Ha! Ha! I'm just a little late, aren't I?
Hopefully I can finish them in time for Christmas 2013!
No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
