One Down

Yup, this my friends is the first of my 3 UFO's for Finn's challenge. I know, I know, it's just a pieced top. But, that's a LOT more than it was a week ago. I found the wonderful border fabric with coffee words on it in tones of pink and dark red and KNEW it would be perfect for the border. This Disappearing 9-Patch is destined to be for the guest bed. Our guest room is very tiny, barely big enough to hold the antique Jackson bed & dresser. It's also Pepto Bismal pink. That's the color it was when we moved in and we've just never been motivated to paint it.

Along with finishing the piecing on this top, I also finished the quilting on my Old Tobacco Road. As soon as I'm finished with the binding I'll post pictures. Next up on my UFO list is the Blooming 9-Patch. After that's done, I'm not sure what I'll tackle. I'm leaning towards something smaller.....

Hello again, I'm just popping in to say "hi" and see how things are coming with you. I'm very, very impressed! To be out the borders in just a week...wow! I'm sure its going to look wonderful in the guest room. I hope you'll take a picture for us.
You are rolling great guns girl! Doesn't it feel good to have things on the way to finished? Hugs,FInn

What a beautiful quilt! If you hadn't said it was a Disappearing 9 Patch I wouldn't have known.

It looks very elegant & not at all as scrappy and busy as some of these quilts can get. . . it's amazing to see how different fabrics make block designs look different.

Keep up the good work!

In peace & pieces,
