I’m joining the 2019 Finish-A-Long, but I’m barely dipping my toe in the waters, so to speak. I hate setting goals I have no reasonable hope of achieving, so for the first quarter I’m going to nominate one small project that I’m certain I can get done. As I’m in Australia, I’m linking through Sandra of Sew Of Course in Ireland.
This top is one of my oldest UFOs. It was made in a workshop with Sara Nephew in 1994, when she attended the Australasian Quilt Convention in Canberra. I loved her workshops but, as you can see, my fabric choices weren’t great. The pink, mint green and floral green fabrics were bought for a sampler class in 1988 (the results of that were so horrendous they’ve never seen the light of day in thirty years). I think most of the others came from curated long quarters packs.
The top is roughly a metre square so it shouldn’t take long to baste, quilt and bind. Even though I don’t like it, I’m sure the cats won’t be as fussy.
