Color it Red Blog Hop!

It’s time for the Color it Red Blog hop courtesy of Carol over at Just Let Me Quilt. As you may have heard me say before, I’m trying to revitalize my attempt to finish some UFO’s and I had the PERFECT one languishing in a cupboard for this one.

I had the blocks made already so the hardest part of all of this was finding the directions for the setting plan on my computer. This is from the wonderful Carol Doak and this ran as a mystery quilt for her online group in….wait for it….2012/13! Ok, and if you are wondering, nope, it doesn’t even come close to being my oldest UFO. (Not by a long shot…just sayin’.)

So, shout outs to two wonderful Carol’s…one who inspired me to make these blocks and one who inspired me to finish the top!

Now, I seem to be in a red and white theme here with my first three Project Quilting Challenges being red and white, too. But, tomorrow and Thursday I’m making my Project Quilting 11.4 project and I have a whole new color theme in mind…stay tuned. And, while you’re at it, check out these other fabulous bloggers….I really am excited to be in the company of such talented people!

Happy quilting,

  1. Congratulations on finishing your Carol Doak project. It is beautiful. I have a couple of her books but I don’t think I have what it takes to do all that paperpiecing. LOL

  2. 2012/2013 is not bad for UFO age. I have one 10 years older, which wouldn’t be so bad if I hadn’t just started quilting in 2001.

  3. Great job on finishing the UFO; it’s perfect for this hop!

  6. What a beautiful UFO red quilt and “yay” that you brought it out from hiding to finish…love it! Those blocks look so detailed with tons of little pieces. You rock at finishing this one! I’ve been doing quite a bit of cleaning out in my sewing stuff and can’t believe how many UFOs I have. You’ve inspired me to drag them out and get them finished after I move. Thank you, sweet lady, for hopping with us. xo
