UFO of the month

I have been excavating in the deep, dark, endless UFO closet looking for a project to finish this month. Look what I found!
This is an old quilt top that I finished sewing in June 2011. It has been "in waiting" ever since. The pattern was by Sindy Rodenmayer of Fat Cat Patterns. I don't see it on her website anymore but she has some great patterns there and a free BOM for you to check out. And I did finish the bright version of the same pattern (without the sashing) in 2011 - see it here.

Brown is not one of my favourite colours, but I do really like sampler quilts, so I think I will enjoy machine quilting this project.  I'm going to try to quilt 3 of these brown blocks each week and will blog about it on Saturdays for the brown RSC
The first step will be the 3 B's - getting a Backing and Batting, and pin Basting.

Very pretty! I would love to explore your closet for ufo's!

Very nice top Kathy. I think the sashing makes it very dynamic looking and it is going to be a beautiful quilt!

This is a very nice quilt top; love the brown tones of color and the sampler blocks. Good luck with the quilting. So nice that this one will be finished and out to be enjoyed.

You are a brave soul to use an item that you plan to hand quilt as your OMG for February. Go girl! I'm sure the extra incentive of completing the goal will be enough motivation to finish this one off!

So the obvious question is, if you don't really like brown, why did you do awhole sampler quilt in brown? It's lovely, btw, but I like the bright color version more.

This will be a fun one to watch for on Saturdays. Good luck with your goal!

Which is larger--your sewing room or your UFO closet?!?

Mary said...

Way to combine the two- RSC and OMG. Sounds very Doable. You have some wonderful stuff in that closet!

Oh strangely enough, my brown stash is not that big at all--as I like taupes, browns etc...now how did that happen?? I think your sampler quilt is lovely...hugs, Jaulierose

Always interesting to dig quilt tops out of the depths of where-ever we're storing them.:) This one is a good one!
