Well, after making four handbags, I thought I would move into something different, and something out of the UFO basket. This is an interesting UFO I have had sitting for a long time- the start of a quilted wall hanging made up of pieced blocks, 5 Card Tricks blocks and 4 Snail Tails Blocks.
I made this in 1993. I was all set to make a couple of borders out of the four colors in the blocks, when all of a sudden I couldn’t find it. You see, my mother has always had a habit of putting things away that she finds sitting wherever. Back when I made this, the only place I had to work was the kitchen table, and after she saw it there for about three days in a row, she decided to put it away. At the time, she could not remember where she put the extra material- and this was maybe a day after she put it away! I got frustrated and put everything away. Last year, she found the unfinished top in a box she had packed when we moved in 2009. This year, I finally found the left over material in a tub she packed even farther back.
I’m not quite sure right at this moment how I am going to make borders, but since I have never found any leftovers of the white background, they will have to be all colored borders. It shouldn’t take very long- it’s only 27” square at this point. It will be nice to see it finished.
