UFO # 1


I finished my first UFO last night. It's just a simple strippie pattern I made up a few years ago using one kiddie focus print and 2 coordinates - I use this design to make quick donation quilts. Everything is cut in strips WOF and then alternated between skinny acent strips, a plain strip, and then the focus print. The plain strips are usually a good spot to try some border designs - hearts in this case.

I love the colors in this quilt. I haven't tried a row quilt like that yet. I think I'm going to have to make one soon.

Cute. I told you that it wouldn't be too long until you had your life back again. Moving only FEELS like forever!

Really cute, Mary. With all those cats in the kiddie print my DGD would love that- so will Calico Quilter! Glad that you are up and quilting again after the move.

What a great idea for a kid's quilt - quick, but very effective :)

As a Momma of a 3.5 year old - I can tell you that a little child will LOVE this quilt. Do it with construction trucks and my son would be on cloud nine! I wonder when you cut the solid strips if you cut them the width of a panto you already have on hand? It looks good in anycase.

Cheers!
