September UFO - DONE!

September UFO - Blocks from Rainbow swap 2009 is complete!

Over the past 2 years I have gone back and forth on what I wanted to do with these blocks. Sometimes I thought I would add sashing between the blocks. Sometimes I thought I would add borders. However, I ended up just piecing the 9 blocks together, free motion stipple on the white fabric only and binding it. 

I used some fabric from my aunt for the backing. I made the light green block for the swap.

Here it is hanging at the top of the stairs. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

October UFO is the Snowbound blocks. I believe this was the free BOM offered by Bunny Hill Designs in 2010. I pieced the snowman blocks last summer during the road trip that moved us from Michigan to Idaho. I have completed all of the patchwork blocks, just have 7 snowman blocks left to piece. I hope to completely finish this quilt by the end of the month.

Head over to Judy's blog to see who else has completed their September UFO.

  4. My quilts often become UFO's at the point where I need to make a decision too. You found a nice solution--congrats on your finish! The snowman quilt will be fun to work on as we go into winter (and nice to have done for the season too!)
