A Finish and Choices
I finished another of my tops from the New Year's mystery blitz. This one was not actually a mystery. I cut the strips to make a second quilt for the yahoo.com mystery I was doing, but decided it didn't work, after I saw the instructions. The mystery really needed a scrappy background, and this one was a single fabric. So I can up with this design, using most of the blocks from the pieces I'd cut in advance for the mystery. A few leftovers (mostly 2.5" squares) will be part of a later quilt.
This is one of the quilts I planned to finish for my Q1 plans in the UFO Finish Along, so progress is being made there. It has already been sent out as a donation to Victoria's Quilts so now my sights turn onward to my next plan.
Unfortunately, I'm not feeling the love for any of the quilts I put on my Q1 list :( So I may pull something new out of the UFO closet to drop on the longarm this weekend. Maybe this one, so I can try out a new feather technique I read about.
Although I'd really like to quilt this one, for show and tell at the next Modern guild meeting. I don't know yet how I'm going to quilt this one, although I'm pretty sure it's going to involve lots of straight lines.
