The number I drew for January is number 7 - Northern Lights. This is a quilt I designed for Threads That Bind. We kitted it up and I wrote up the pattern. I ended up taking a kit home for myself and it's been hanging out in various places in my sewing room. I resisted putting it in the designated UFO drawer for a long time because it was never started, but I decided that since it was a kit that I should. When I pulled out the kit I realized that it was missing a fat quarter....wonder how that happened? So I had to go digging in my stash for a replacement. Now I have all my fat quarters ready to go and will start working on piecing the top this week! I will need to buy a back for this, so will be on the lookout for something I like.
This is what the original sample looked like...I love the border fabric! As I work on this I'll be double checking my pattern instructions and will add it to my patterns for sale when I finish. I thought it was a fun idea for a pattern. I'd love to try it in some different fabrics, but I need to make this one first and get it done.
I'd love to have you join with me in my challenge - feel free to make your own list and play along - if we can get a few people interested we can link up at the end of the month to tell about our projects :) Here's to ending 2014 with less UFO's and more finished projects!
