Slow UFO Progress

January UFO progress
January 2018
UFO progress has been slow the last week, but I did manage to get the rows sewn together and the first outer border attached.
auditioning ideas
I debated about what to do between the rows: I thought about using either bright yellow or muted yellow between the green cheater cloth. Marilyn and Brenda thought the muted yellow would work the best, and I agreed; however, I decided to move the muted yellow to a frame around the rows rather than in-between the rows.

The top has been on my design floor for a week, and I've decided to add another black border rather than introduce another color. The final border will be the green cheater cloth. Hopefully, this UFO will be completed by the end of January.


  1. I think the muted yellow is the best too and can't wait to see it finished.

  2. I really like how each square is different and the muted yellow and green together are nice. how large is this?

  3. I like the direction you are going with this. And love the "design as you sew" process.

  4. It looks so nice together!!! Great choices on the sashing; I really like the contrasts.

  5. It's all so beautiful Nancy. I immediately thought of the barns with quilts on them when I first glanced at the photos and then I realized that was exactly what they were. :-) Love the color choices.

  6. Half of the fun of quilting is playing with colours!

  7. Very nice, I am liking seeing this come together.

  8. It is beautiful Nancy. I have no doubt it will be finished by the end of the month, easily.

  9. It doesn't matter if progress is slow, you need time to think and ponder as well!

  10. The black accents really help set off the squares. Very pretty.
