Plaid Beauty UFO

On the design wall today is my UFO of the month - Plaid Beauty. This project came to quilt camp with me last week, but for some unknown reason, it never came out of it's bag. I just didn't feel like working on it then, but today I am wishing I had, because now I only have 4 more days to get these blocks sewn together! 
It took a while to get the project sorted out and remember what my plan was for this quilt.
This is a Bonnie Hunter pattern from her Leader-Ender book called "Blue Ridge Beauty". I have two more blocks to sew, and then I'll start to web the rows.

  5. I think if I was quilting with a group of people this quilt would stay in the bag because I would really need to concentrate on it!

  6. I love your version of Bonnie's quilt (that one is on my scrappy bucket list). Your version in plaids is the bomb! Isn't it weird how our mood and emotions dictate what we work on and when? We all have so much in common as quilters...

  13. I see you have decided to go with the barn raising setting which makes good use of the contrast between the light and dark plaids. It looks just wonderful! Did you buy plaids or men's shirts for the fabric?
