UFO Wednesday



I actually finished up one of the items on my UFO list! This is #14. Of course, it only needed borders, so it was quick to finish. I had originally thought about mitered corners, but I did not have enough fabric for that, so then I thought about sewing large nine-patches for the corners, but didn't like the way it looked. So I kept it simple with the dark pink plaid in the corners, and I will use this same fabric to do the binding. I copied the idea for this quilt from Julie K.'s blog, her version is really striking. She used a pattern from Evelyn Sloppy's book, Strips and Strings. One down, nineteen more on the list. Check over at Judy L.'s blog to see more UFO progress.
