This month Judy randomly chose #4 from the UFO list.
I've been dreading this one. I was hoping maybe it would linger till the end of the year and the UFO challenge would have been forgotten so it could stay in the closet.
What is #4 on my list?
It looks like the hard part is done.
But it's not.
Because this advertisement on the back of a Quilter's Newsletter Magazine from 1994 was my inspiration.
I'm not sure exactly what pattern I want to use. I'm going to borrow some books from my mom and I've seen a few quilts on Flickr along these lines, too. Some head-scratching and sketching will be going on before I start anything.
And some background-fabric-purchasing. Likely off-white, solid.
For now, I have these fabrics left over from the star construction:
(I can't quite get the colors right - they're all a little too bright.)
So the applique is hard, but those set-in corners are the scary part. I've done applique. Set-in corners are on my list of things I know I should learn, so I guess this month I will.
This quilt was started about 10 years ago for my brother-in-law and his wife. Sadly, I worked slower than their self-destructive behavior and the marrige is no more. Which is why it's in a box today.
So this month I'll get the top finished and it will end up waiting more until it tells me where it should go.
PS Shandy is my "sister" because my parents are her people. (Anyone who has a cat knows they are not our cats; we are their people...)
