Sometimes it is so satisfying to dig out an old unfinished project, one that hasn't seen the light of day for months, and actually turn it into a finished project. This is the case with my last finish. Ever since starting WiP Wednesday, over at Freshly Pieced (go check it out!), a few weeks ago, I have felt overwhelmed with all my works in progress. I often find myself jumping at the gate to cut into new fabric and start a new project, that I fall short somewhere shortly after. That being said, I decided for every new project I start, I want to finish one UFO. Ugh! At that pace maybe sometime in 2011 I will get caught up! :) Oh well! Holding true to my word, that is just what I did last week. I took some blocks I had started a while ago (I can honestly say I have no idea how long it has been) and decided to scrap the original plan and come up with something new.
And so........with a little trim here and there, some Kona Cotton Solid (when in doubt, go with grey!), and some sashing........I ended up with this.
I actually love it! Way more than I thought I was going to when I first pulled the blocks out of that UFO tub last week. It has motivated me to dig out some more unfinished projects and see what else I have hiding!
Now all this quilt needs is to be basted, quilted, and bound. I am leaning towards straight line quilting in the gray sashing. Any thoughts?
And the best part, this finish means I can start a new project! :)
