FINISHED Feels Good!

I did it!  I finally finished one of my UFOs!!!!   It is quilted, bound, and packed to go with me to the camp today. 100_3000

I call this one, “Camp Four-Patch Posey”.  It was a quick and easy quilt to make.  The floral fabric was from my stash and has been there probably 10 years.  I found it on sale at a quilt shop in West Monroe, LA and bought all that remained on the bolt (about 8-9 yards, I think) because…


I actually bought that fabric to make a shower curtain for the house in Arkansas.  The best laid plans…  That project never got done.  Now that we have moved and these colors don’t exactly go with this house, I decided it would make a great Four-Patch Posey.  I’m not crazy-in-love with it but it will do well for my bed at the camp.  The print was a little too open to get great, swirling results from the 4-patches.  Some blocks are better than others.


The quilting pattern is “Willowy Weeds”.  I think it imitates the vines on the print.  Of course you can see it better on the back.


YES!!!  ONE UFO done!!!

NOW… I am off to SIL Retreat with Mary Anne.  Our other SIL, Debbie, won’t be able to make it this time, but we do have a surprise guest to hold her spot.

The first thing I will do when I walk in the door?  Put my new quilt on my bed!

What am I working on?  Jeremy’s quilt!  I have all the blocks made.  I need 348 half-square triangles for the sashing.  I now have 230 so I am making good progress.  I hope to have the body of the quilt all together by Saturday evening, then I will only need to add outer borders.   IF When I finish this one I will have 2 more UFOs off my list (Making the quilt counts as #1; quilting and binding it count as #2.)

Tootle-loo, my friends!  I’ll give you a FULL report of all our fun and shenanigans next week!
