Here it is Monday again. It sure comes around fast! My last week's boxy stars project has been folded up and is waiting for it's turn on the longarm. Next up is this UFO that is at least 5 years old. We did a 9 patch swap using florals and beige/cream fabrics. Something in my life happened and I didn't get mine sent in on time. I have a bag with 10 sets of 6" 9 patches. That bag got put away.
July 2006, we were on the bus headed to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. The hostess had prizes and I won the book Patches and Posies by Teri Christopherson. The cover photo of floral 9 patches and appilique flowers jumped out at me and I knew what to do with those 9 patches.
I also needed an easy project for my down time at work. I began to make blocks and pretty soon they were in the bag with the 9 patches to be written on the annual UFO list. Finally this year they were move up to the small group UFO list and their number was chosen for February. So out of the box they came and now parts of them are up on the design wall.
I'm not going to put the applique border on. This project needs to be finished. Stay tuned....hopefully next Monday will show some progress. Now it's time to head over to Judy L's and see her design wall and then see what others have on their wall. I do love Monday mornings.
