This is a VERY old UFO! The pattern is called Wild Rose Trellis and can be found in the book, Spring Cleaning by Terry Atkinson. The book is from 2003 and I think I made the top when I still lived in California--so that means it is a 10 year old UFO. Yikes! I have no idea why I was making it...
I dug through one of my plastic tubs and found it. I decided to donate it to my mom's charity quilt drive--lap quilts for an entire nursing home. I actually quilted it up yesterday on her long arm.
It was good practice, but very difficult to see the white thread on the top. I used loops and loopy flowers. We have decided to machine bind all these charity quilts since they will be washed often.
After washing, it is 50 x 60 inches a little on the small side, but for the right person will be a lovely lap quilt.
Here are some of my FGV blocks--Haystack Block, Grandma's Quilt Block, Furrows Block, and the Gingham Block. I still have not made this Friday's blocks--but will make them this week.
I finished up all my S Is for Stitch girl blocks this week. I am trimming them down and piecing them today. There are more embroidery blocks that you stitch once the top is pieced, so I plan on working on those for Slow Sunday Stitching this evening while we watch The Giver. http://kathysquilts.blogspot.com
The tiara block was fun to make and every little girl needs a magic wand.
The zinnia block came out very cute and I don't know why I put off the ballerina block because it was easy.
We don't have zinnias growing in our garden, but plenty of sunflowers and zucchini.
I also finished the border in my Apple-Licious quilt top and got a backing for it. Time to set up my pinning tables to quilt it.
