Now this is almost antique, LOL, well at least nearly vintage, blocks left from this quilt,
begun when we lived in Texas in the early '80's, it came to AZ with me in 1986. I had begun to hand quilt it and over the years managed to quilt about 2/3 of this KS quilt. After I acquired my first LA in 2000, I decided to machine quilt it and went about the laborious task of removing the not-so-great hand quilting. This took quite a while, the years rolled by and I realized that the backing wasn't large enough for the LA so it was again set aside. Eventually a couple of years ago, I enlarged the backing and quilted it intending to perhaps sell it-except that my SIL saw the picture and loved it so I gave the quilt to her and it graces their bed, more than 25 years since it was begun.
I was left with all the blocks that were intended for pillow shams, now not necessary for their smaller QS bed. These laid around for another few years until a couple of weeks ago I decided to use up some unfinished blocks and they became a quilt fit for a baby girl.
The backing is a pin dot and it's quilted with the folk-art floral all-over that I used on the big quilt.
This year I am focusing on finishing and quilting as many of this kind of thing from my stash as I can. I am still beginning new projects but am dedicated to also clear out old bits and pieces that have been ignored for too long. I have no daughters who might finish my UFO's.
