It it the first of March and I should have UFO #10 done but…..I have UFO #12 completed. I really love this quilt and I had to take out all of the stipple quilting and re-quilt it. I used my handy seam ripper while watch TV, it made a good excuse to sit on the couch with a warm quilt this winter.
The pattern is called Sea Glass by Janelle Cedusky and was in the June/July 2010 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts. I have another UFO with this pattern in peaches with the blocks done.
Bella approves of the new color of thread that I used. I removed the ivory stitching and used a taupe Bottom Line thread. It blended much better plus by re-quilting with a different color I could see what I was doing better. The binding was already on it so I started at one side, removed the stitches from a section and then re-stitched. This is the quilt I did on a friend’s long-arm and I must have moved too fast as the tension was very loose on the bottom.
After I washed it the cats seemed to like it even better. The neat thing about this quilt is you get 2 blocks and the small border blocks from only 1 fat quarter. You only need 12 all together. If you would like to see what it looks like on our bed, click here.
This is my UFO #10. I did work on it and have the blocks all pieced together but it needs a border or two. The blue at the bottom is not part of the quilt, it is water noodles holding down my design wall which is a flannel back tablecloth hung over my bookshelf. When I’m done I just roll it up.
