UFO Top Complete

I was able to accomplish my One Monthly Goal for December, which was to piece the top of UFO Complete. 

This quilt pattern can be found in the book Simple Strategies for Block-Swap Quilts by Lynn Roddy Brown. 

I was inspired by my friend Doreen’s version which you can see here.

The sky was so blue today. 

UFO (top) Complete will now join my quilts waiting for backing, and become a future One Monthly Goal (sponsored by Elm Street Quilts) to be quilted and bound, and one day become UFO Complete.

You are an unfinished work in progress. One of the good things about life’s challenges: you get to find out that you’re capable of being far more than you ever thought possible. ~ Karen Salmonsohn

UFO incomplete

My December goal is to piece the top of this quilt which happens to be called UFO Complete. 

You can find the pattern in the book Simple Strategies for Block-Swap Quilts by Lynn Roddy Brown.

When my customer, Doreen brought me her version of this quilt to Longarm I fell in love with it.  You can see Doreen's quilt here.

I love scrappy, and always like to have a leader ender project on the go, and this quilt certainly fit that criteria.

I think a few blocks might need to be switched around, so it’ll be laying on the design wall floor for a couple of days, until it feels right.

Take a minute to stop by Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal to see what others are up to, so many hopeful projects each month, most of which get completed

Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? Yes, work never begun. ~ Christina Rossetti
