When I participated in the Bee I was really excited. Enjoyed making the blocks, loved sending them off to the USA and really loved looking at the parcel of blocks sent back to me.
Why I didn't just sew them together then I don't know! Instead they were put away in a padded envelope in THE CUPBOARD!
So, a couple of weeks ago I decided that this pile of blocks was the next UFO on the list and that it was time to tackle them. In an afternoon I turned them into blocks of 4 and decided on the arrangement of blocks to create a quilt top 4 blocks square.
Then we went on holiday and the now WIP went back into THE CUPBOARD.
But I promised myself it would now be finished so yesterday I sewed all the blocks together into a top and in the next few days I will sandwich it and finish it!!!
So three Sneaky peak photos:
I have chosen this quilt's name: A Riot of Colour!
I wonder if you can work out what pattern this is? Photo 3 is a good clue and if you look back on my Flickr photostream ( koshka2 ) and look at my Bee swaps I think you will find the answer.
I have to say finishing UFOs is great. Lovely feeling of accomplishment.
However I did find it gave me the dilemma of when is a UFO a UFO or when is it a WIP?
I had a Set on Flickr I had called 2013 Completed WIPs but then decided they should be more accurately described as 2013 Completed UFOs so I changed the title of the set. Two quilts in there at present, soon to be joined by a 3rd. HURRAH!
Do let me know if you have worked out which set of UFO blocks this was.
