Yes, I am still working on really old UFOs. I guess that is a good thing. It does feel good to check it off the list.
This one has been sitting in a bag on my sewing table for a few months because I did pull it out a few months ago when I was on a roll getting things done, but I stopped just before getting to this one.
Here's where I started.
Let me start by saying that several years ago, my sister-in-law and I were in a quilting group and we participated in a 9-patch block exchange. The blocks had to be 6 1/2" unfinished and we were to use Robyn Pandolph fabrics only. I love her fabrics!
This all took place around 2004.
In 2014, my sister-in-law finally put her quilt together and I quilted it for her. You can see her 9-patch quilt here. I loved her quilt so much; and since I had 133 blocks!, I thought I would replicate her quilt which I did shortly after doing her quilt.
As you can see from the above picture, my original plan was a little more complicated and I think that is what held me off from doing that particular quilt.
Anyways, after doing the 9-patch quilt, I still had plenty of 9-patches left over and that is after donating the ones that weren't made to the correct size or some gals started introducing other fabrics into the stash because they didn't want to go out and buy more of Robyn's fabric (although at the time, I couldn't get enough of her fabric).
So, back to 2021, my goal was to finish what I really wanted to do in the first place.
My inspiration for this quilt was in this magazine, June 2001.
