My first 2012 personal UFO challenge project is finished. I'm not positive, but I think that the completed quilt top awaited batting and backing for well over a year and a half. I am not certain why I placed this item on the back burner, a position usually reserved for something that is not quite coming together. I was pleased with the top and now that it has been fully assembled, I am also pleased with the finished quilt.
This is a simple, solid nine patch pattern, mixed with print squares, each measuring 6" x 6". The red and gray fabrics are from Moda's French General line. The nine patches were placed in an Irish Chain formation and an occasional "yellow zinger" was introduced.
Again, the chestnut pattern was used for the quilting, in a light grey colored thread. I have become completely comfortable with this free motion pattern and am ready to move on to another technique.
The back was made with two pieces of wholecloth; the print and the gray French General. The later was manufactured with an adorable border printed at the salvage, which I preserved for this quilt. Now, the question: do I move on to UFO #2 or do I start something new? What would you do?
