August UFO done! and preview on Sept.

And here it is! The quilted square is one I made at a class about ...oh...7 or 8 years ago. I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it at the time, so into the pile it went. Here's a detail shot:

And the back.
Yes I realize this is not the most difficult of projects, but it was unfinished. It also gave me time to get a head start on my Fassett snowballs quilt for September. I also finished my Chez Moi 2 quilt top.

Here's what I started with on the Fassett snowballs. A pile of fabrics and partly cut pieces. This was from the Kaffe Fassett class I took at the quilt festival a couple of years ago. As UFOs go, this one isn't that old.

I didn't want to make the full queen size quilt. I'm just doing a lap/throw size. It still takes 320 small squares for the corners.

Here's the first couple of rows:

Here's a couple more. I've got the blocks assembled for the fifth row, and that will put me at the halfway point. My goal is to have the top done this weekend.

Stay tuned!


  1. Your hand quilting looks gorgeous -- as does the Kaffe project. I love his fabics but I don't have too many dark ones in my stash yet.

  2. Wonderful hand quilted pillow! It doesn't matter what size your UFO is.......just finishing it is great! Your Kaffe quilt blocks really look neat!

  3. Okay, so with all those projects done you should have a really good time at the quilt show in Des Moines! Love the pillow. Mom
