UFO Challenge #3

I completed my July UFO Challenge πŸ™‚ #3 on the list was to complete my TBT (Traditional Block Thursday) quilt top. I started these blocks at the beginning of 2015 as a quilt along with Penny Rose Fabrics. Many of these quilt blocks were my early teachings of piecing.

Here’s the lovely fabric I found for the sashing and borders. The sashing has little triangles (Dear Stella Chroma Basics) and adds a little modern touch to this reproduction quilt.

Here’s all the blocks pieced together with sashing, and Neko supervising of course πŸ™‚

As I worked through my quilt top, I noticed my thread running low. I’ve been working on this spool of thread…probably since I started this quilt!

I made it to the shop in time to get my completion check off and my name entered in the drawing. I received two submissions, one for the completion and the second for a large quilt top πŸ˜€ Now I just have to sew up a backing and quilt it! …maybe I’ll complete this quilt first thing next year… Little at a time, right?

  1. Great job on a goal completion. And I bet it’s nice to check it off your list. Turned out very nice.
    And it’s a kind of good feeling when you see an empty thread spool.

    • Thank you! Very happy to complete the top. A little overwhelmed with the finish as it’s the biggest quilt I’ve made yet. I’ll keep my eye out for more thread at the quilt show.
