As you know I've declared this year the year of the UFO finishes. To help I joined in on Judy's UFO Challenge and my list can be found here
January's UFO from my list was Dotty About Scraps a scrap quilt from far too many years ago,
This was my first scrap quilt and my first self designed quilt. It's approximately double bed sized.
I struggled with thinking on how to quilt this, probably why it's been in the box for so long. I normally draw out a quilting plan for ideas but decided to just wing this one.
First up I quilted straight(ish) diagonal lines through all the chain squares, through the sashing and into the borders
This gave me large. bordered areas of unquilted spaces. In these I quilted a made up motif of curves and straight (ish) lines. Again going over sashing and borders as necessary.
The pictures above aren't the best sorry as I used a Superior Threads King Tut variegated thread which blends in really well.
It shows up alot better on the back. I love this backing fabric by the way. I think I'm going to have to pick up some more. It's a lightweight upholstery fabric and great for backings. You can see a sneak peak of the spotty binding I used too.
And the finished quilt
So that's January finished and three UFO's out of the box and finished. Roll on February.
