I have a big pile of UFO tops on a closet shelf. Some have been there for a long time. I should just quilt them and move them along.
This star quilt was made many years ago. The center poofs out. I either have to quilt it down or redo the center. It wouldn’t take long to finish it as it is a small quilt. When it is finished it will either go into the give away box or become a charity quilt.
Years ago I had a stack and whack class with Bethany Reynolds. I should have used a floral print, but instead, used golfer fabric. This was the only quilt that I finished in a class. Usually, I have to finish them at home. After all the stack and whack pieces were sewn together, I realized that there were body parts everywhere going around in a circle. Who would want this quilt? Maybe if I quilted it and put it into the give away bin someone would take it away.
I used to have a surger. It was a simple one but I didn’t like it. Probably, I didn’t practice enough to give it a chance. I did make one quilt, but the corners didn’t match. The surger wasn’t really made to make a quilt. It didn’t help that the fabric made it look like a big overripe watermelon. It’s the perfect size for a Linus quilt. When I finish it, it will have a home. Someone will like a cheery watermelon quilt.
This brown quilt must have been made many years ago. There was a period of time when I used brown fabric in my quilts all the time. This is the only unfinished brown quilt that I have. It is pretty. Miss Molly has inspected it and thinks that I should quilt it and give it to someone who will enjoy it.
There are many more unfinished quilts on the shelf. Most of them are small. Some are twin size. They all have different reasons why I haven’t quilted them. It would be nice to have an empty shelf. I should get busy and quilt them one at a time.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
