UfO from 1988....and another finish.




A very old UFO finish.... from 1988. The calico in the center(basket) cant' even be matched anymore. So it was added to from my stash, and the local quilt shop. It is quilted like mad...so that my sister who will receive it, can turn over the ugly side to use as a white on white quilt. Just glad its done! Motivated me to do another partially started quilt for, yet another sister. This simple turning 20, which was simply quilted in order to be delivered to Pennsylvania, early Feb. Unfortunately my flight was canceled as it went through Baltimore ..... so no cake at my mom's birthday...no quilt deliveries. But soon it will be there. Just hope its still cool enough to use it, when they get delivered.

oh I love the look of these quilts. Do you think it really matters if fabrics dont match.
I think it adds charm to the quilts. Well done.
Lucky sisters.

Doesn't it feel great getting those reallllly old ones out of the way?

The second quilt I totally finished, was one I started in maybe 1982. I finished it 23 years later. Quite a challenge trying to find sashing and border fabrics that would look good with the 1980's calico prints I'd made blocks with. :O But I agree with aubirdwoman--sometimes that is part of the charm. And there are many antique quilts that have very obvious changes in fabric as they progressed.
