Louisiana Times Twenty
After I cleared these Louisianas off my wall, I looked at the UFO list and picked out one close to the bottom. It is the 2009 Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Quilt. When I opened up the box, I was happy to find that twelve blocks are finished! I was unhappy to behold my piecing skill level from 2009 -- many of them are kind of wonky. There's a finishing kit -- a center medallion of a sort of triple rising star and a lattice that seems to place small stars at the cornerstones. I've started on the center medallion and, by gum, I'm going to see this project through even though I am not at all crazy about it. I've learned that sometimes once they are complete I like them better.
Unfortunately, I believe there is another year's Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Quilt to tackle at some point.
My objection to both of these projects is that they violate the No One Line Of Fabric Pledge that I took awhile back.
But they aren't going to finish themselves, now, are they?
