Recuperating with a UFO

Last week while going through boxes of stuff in my sewing room, I stumbled upon this UFO. As with most projects, it was started with much gusto and the double pinks, black and white shirtings and black reproduction fabrics were collected on a shop hop in Michigan. That was about 7 years ago and while I had vague memories of the quilt and knew that it was all cut, I had no idea that I had completed so many blocks. Originally I had planned for a setting of 12 x 12 blocks but when I realized I had sewn just over 100 of them decided this was big enough! Assembling them was a great way to have some mindless sewing while I am recovering from a nasty cold bug. And I actually like how it turned out. Now about those other 44 blocks that are cut.....

It looks lovely Heather. Sorry to hear you have been poorly. Nothing better then a spot of quietly sewing for a bad cold. I hope you're feeling better.

Hope your cold goes away soon. I like the quilt and wonder what you will be doing with the 44 extra blocks.

Wow! I really love this quilt top! It's fortunate you found it and decided to put it together. The pinks work so well with the black and white shirtings. Don't forget to post it when you finish it, please.
