After spending my morning getting a GA driver’s license, I decided I needed something mindless to sew. I intended to grab a set of fat quarters and make a 16 patch quilt. I grabbed a bundle and started pairing them up before I decided it wasn’t working for me. Wandered back over to the bins and found an old UFO sitting on top of one. So much for something mindless. I knew what I intended to make but there were no instructions and I couldn’t find the file with my draft quilt … and I know I would have drafted it out before I started cutting. I crossed my fingers and hoped that I had saved the photo of the inspiration quilt I’d found on eBay and that I could find it. And I did find the photo.
All the blocks were cut (in July 2016) and I had a blue sashing fabric in the bag too. I remember not having a green that worked and choosing the blue.
It appears that I have 20 blocks cut ( they’ll be 12 inches finished, 12.5 inches with seam allowances) and most likely I intended to cut my sashing 3.5 inches. It will be larger than my typical sofa size donation quilts.
Once I figured out what I was doing, it didn’t take that long to start piecing the blocks … working on the 3rd one now.
Obviously, it would have been helpful if I’d put notes in the bag with the fabrics but I doubt I expected it to sit for 5 years. It’s another reason I almost always try to finish piecing a top before setting a project aside.
