Finished 2009 Block of the Month
Takes me forever, but I can finish a block-of-the-month. This is the 2009 BOM from QuiltingAroundTheWorld.com. I got behind because of computer problems and then once behind, I just didn't get to it. As part of this month's UFO challenge, I finished the remaining blocks and then the borders and it all looks spiffy now! Yes, one block is wrong - but I would bet you wouldn't guess which one, so I'm not saying. I totally loved that turquoise fabric, so paired it with purple. This is a pretty large quilt roughly 85x101, so quilting will be a challenge. I do plan to put feathers into all those side triangles. Haven't yet decided on the blocks though. Should I do stitch-in-the-ditch or plan on even more feathers? Not sure. Plenty of time to decide. I hope to finish the binding today and then can put it in the To-Be-Quilted box. Yes, I now have a BOX of flimsies to quilt! It's not that I have a lot (6?), but I am also making the binding as well as backing (when it gets made in advance) so needed somewhere to contain these parts.
