Shift the Schedule and Do the Deadline!

Just when I thought I had the schedule for 2017 UFO’s mapped out, along came a Deadline.

Family handsome lad had his First Birthday coming up! So, dig through the stash – ’cause I’m not supposed to be starting anything new! – and found a hidden gem of fabrics and pattern tucked away in one of those tubs in DH’s shed.

Piecing the top went fairly quickly, next the quilting and ‘How to Quilt It?’

Ditch stitching each block to anchor the quilt is a first must. Then stepping back to let the quilt suggest it’s own pattern – it’s a one block quilt that uses light and dark value of bright colours to show depth. After that out came the Westalee Rulers, and on with the Westalee Ruler Foot.

Using two rulers from the Sampler Set, and alternating them between the two blocks, gave the quilt the interest of close up detail.

I missed the Deadline by a few days, but met the Schedule by improving my finishing rate! Phew – that’s another one done! But there’s still left over fabric in the tub, perhaps enough for …think about that later.
