Design Wall Monday - September's UFO
This is a project that hasn't been seen on my blog for a long time. These are some of the sampler blocks from Barbara Brackman's project called Grandmother's Choice - Votes for Women. This was one of my favourite projects and I really enjoyed making these blocks, many of which I made by hand in 2012/2013.
Then the project sat in a box for a while waiting for some layout inspiration to arrive. Finally in 2014 I started sashing the blocks and finished about half of them before progress came to a halt. I was probably just distracted by other wonderful projects, and again it went to the UFO closet.
My goal for this month is to make a quilt top from the blocks. I discovered that for some unknown reason I was missing block #49, so I will make that block to have the complete set. Then I will finish sashing the blocks, and see what happens after that. I am thinking of adding a light sashing with cornerstones, but have to see how it looks on the design wall first.
