First Quilt completed for my quilting marathon was a UFO--#5 to be exact. (whoops--just noticed in my notebook that it is REALLY #6, so much the better)! It is an ABC quilt. I found some pink ABC fabric on sale last week and bought it to go with the squares that I had planned to use another way. Since the ABC squares were already cut, I just cut the pink to place between. I backed it in pink flannel and bound it with pink from a recent Connecting Threads purchase.
I happened to win the December Lotto at Sunshine Quilting Group and put these blocks together. I added some black with red flowers at the bottom, and now I can see that I should have carried it straight across. But, I thought the blue border with correct it--and it didn't totally, but it is done and ready to take to Family Connections Center.
The main blocks for this quilt were hand pieced and donated to Sunshine Lotto. I made up the balancing blocks of some pinwheels I had cut for another quilt and they just happened to fit quite nicely. I had the green 3.5 inch squares cut and I added them to some cream colored squares and added length. The backing is a dark green flannel and the binding is the same cream as in some of the other blocks. It is going to Family Connections Center.
That is 3 of 5 quilts I challenged myself to make in the next two weeks. Tomorrow I'll go pick up my sister, who has been staying with Mom, and then she'll be with me for a few days before she returns home. Next week I'll start on another quilt for my marathon. ...maybe a UFO???!!!
