I loved the blocks and got the 56 blocks done in record time. However, once sewn together I just wasn't very crazy about them. I put four rows together and stopped.
They just weren't very exciting. They were left hanging on the closet door for several months. Over the weekend I decided I would work to finish at least one of my UFO's and this was my choice. I figured I'd finish the top up and donate it to my charity group.
So I added the last four rows and decided I really did like it after all. In fact I know exactly where it will be used. It is to become my new evening lap quilt.
This beauty is my current lap quilt for snuggling up in the evenings with our Yorkie. It currently should be considered a rag not a quilt. I have had it for many years and it came to me pretty worn and I have added to its demise. Well over 15 years ago I was visiting a friend and my husband called me with the news that at a garage sale he had purchased me four antique quilts and a maple quilt stand for $10.00. Oh goodness, I thought really what a prize! It turned out that the stand was beautiful and three of the quilts were indeed antiques in fact one had 1929 embroidered on it. They were absolutely in perfect condition. Then there was this poor little worn baby quilt. For some reason is just had some sort of charm about it and I have used it since as my evening lap quilt. Now with many washings it is finally in its last days. Well, our poodle doesn't think so, she still gets up in my chair every day and snuggles in it. I guess it will be going into her dog bed, and the Yorkie and I get a new pretty lap quilt.
