Nancy at Patchwork Penguin organized another UFO challenge and I decided to join in. We were to select 10 UFOs and each month she will chose a number for us to work on. January’s number is #4 which is my Allatoona BOM from 2009. I have been slowly working on the quilt all last year but really want to finish it.
As a reminder, here is the original pattern we received last January. I have all the four patch blocks done, all the log cabin blocks done and as of today have 8 of the 12 stars done. I made two Lemoyne Stars tonight after I made pumpkin bread for the Piecemakers Bee meeting tomorrow. I was supposed to make pumpkin roll but with all the excitement of the refrigerator fiasco I didn’t get that done but did manage to do a couple of loaves of pumpkin bread. It looks pretty good.
Back to the BOM. It is a two color quilt and my background is dark – black with white and my focus color is lime green. Here are the two blocks I finished tonight.
I have 4 more stars to make and then the dreaded feathered star for the center. I decided early on to make it very scrappy and have discovered that it is a lot more work to cut scrappy than it would have been with just a few fabrics.
I have most of the rest on the design wall so will post that tomorrow for design wall Monday.
