The RWB rectangle quilt is finished. It’s #6 of 7 in my binding marathon and a UFO started in Oct 2015. 

This one was inspired by an antique quilt and instructions are on my website.

It is also a donation quilt and will go with several other completed quilts to Kathy in WI.  She donates RWB quilts to a local hospice where they’re presented to veterans. 

I know many of you are involved with making quilts for veterans and I have more inspiration on the website. I often design in RWB even when I make my quilts in different colors to help provide inspiration. Looking over the list, I see I need to update it too! 

It’s also labeled. When I’m adding a label during binding I like to put it in the bottom right corner with two edges tucked under the binding. Several people also commented the other day that they thought the year should be included on the label — I agree and when I label my quilts they DO have the dates on them but unless I think I’m going to use an entire sheet of labels during a year, I prefer to write the year in by hand with a permanent fabric marker. 

I also checked my UFO spreadsheet and realized that this makes UFO #12 for the year. Twelve UFO’s per year is an ongoing goal for me although I do like to surpass it these days since my total UFO number has been creeping up since the longarm has been in GA. I number all my UFO’s and each year new ones get added to the bottom of the list so a lower number means an older UFO.  Half of these completed were just from last year but the oldest one was from 2008 and as you can see there are some lower numbers on the list too.

    Thanks Mollie for this great patriotic quilt. My beginner quilt group will enjoy making this one. I also appreciate all the “free” quilt instructions you offer.

    I like this simple design too and was so happy to see it. It was perfect for a lot of smaller RWB pieces and strips I’d accumulated, enough to complete two for QOV. Thanks much Mary.

    Another great quilt. I like the simplicity of this one. I don’t think I would have chosen this panto for it but it really enhances the quilt. OMG — just noticed I have (had, hopefully) one of the fabrics in this quilt. Great finish.
