2nd UFO Challenge

Getting my first UFO completed, I was inspired to try another.  This UFO required applique.  Applique work is not my passion and possibly the reason this quilt had become a UFO.  However, I recently took a class with Suzanne Louth on "Broderie Perse" and she totally released the fear in applique.  I pulled this project from the bottom of the stack and completed it in only a few days.  Wow!! I feel great!! Another UFO bites the dust.

Hopefully I can get both quilted before the Jan 14th deadline.

Guild UFO Challenge

As the program chair for our quilt guild, I set up a UFO challenge.  This meant I had to pull out some of my UFO's and complete at least one before the Jan 14th deadline.  Below is the first UFO I pieced.

I started this project in 2004 from a kit I purchased online.  All the pieces were cut and prepared in 2004 before I developed any of the necessary skills to do this advanced piece.  Still, after making a few adjustments, I think it turned out pretty good.
