As the needle bends

A world view thru my hobbit hole door

Not a quilt yet but NOT a UFO!

My New Year’s Eve Mystery quilt is still not a quilt. However, as of Sunday, March 4, 2007, it’s definitely NOT a UFO – it’s a quilt top! Now I have to decide how to piece the fabrics for the back. I likely have enough fabric to do a simple two fabric back but think it’d be much more interesting to do a pieced back – maybe a center panel of 10" squares of the chicken fabrics that I have left from the front, along with a leftover 9 patch block leftover from the front, and the strip of chicken border, then "log cabin" it with wide strips until the back is large enough. But that will have to wait for next weekend, after we go retrieve our hot-tub. SIGH… A quilter’s work is never done!

Here’s a picture of the completed top:

  1. BSue, it is very nice! I’m sure the quilt woulda been done a while back ago, if you wouldn’t quit ripping the stitches out! I think you may be a perfectionist!

    I love the colors!
