The other day I did a post on the Garden Maze quilt and a tutorial on the block. I also showed some different blocks I had made using string pieced centers with applique. Well, I decided to make that quilt my UFO (unfinished object) for March and finally get it finished.
Last month my UFO was the Garden Maze quilt and I waited until the last day of the month to finally get it finished and posted. So I decided this month to get the quilt done right away! Hmmmm, wonder if that means my April UFO won’t get done until the end of that month…..
Monday morning this is what I had finished, my helpers even let me know that one block was upside down…..what would I do without them! I finished up the quilt on Tuesday but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see it. We had almost 5 inches of snow and you know I had to venture out with my quilt. I think the neighbor thought I was crazy.
Okay, back to the pillow. I had one block left over so I trimmed off the corners.
Then I added some of the dark green to the new corners so the flower is sitting nice and pretty.
I like to use old sheets for the inside backing on my pillows. Our pillows always end up being washed and this covers the batting. I forgot to take a photo of the backside of the finished pillow which is the dark green print.
Now if you are still reading here is a little sneak peek at tomorrow…..the white spots are snow and that is me with this crazy idea I had.
You know how you see all those neat photos of spirals in the snow…..well I decided to make one…..and did that poop me out! After I got it done (walking it about 3 times) I then had to get my quilt and then walk it again for the photos. Builder Bob thought I was crazy and who knows what the neighbor watching from his window thought. Both pictures are the same photo.
My plan was to do the spiral and then lay the quilt in the center and take photos from our deck. Well I guess I needed to be higher because the angle wasn’t right. I didn’t want to zoom in as I would lose the spiral. I also was doing this at the wrong time of day for lighting. I thought I was going to have a heart attack walking in the circles……Builder Bob thought he was going to freeze to death….
