Covid-19 Sewing (18) Archaeological Finds (A-2)

Archaeological Find A is moving right along. There are just two borders to go.

It hasn't taken long to get this far. The center medallion was complete, as were the dozen side blocks, each of which must have taken quite some time to piece. Memory fails.

I'd already cut the large lattice strips and had applied many of the brown HSTs.

I'm currently working on the penultimate (Hi, Marsha!) border which is narrow and blue and pieced. The final border is a nice brown print and pretty straightforward.

This will likely reach Flimsy Stage within a week. Thank goodness. I'm tired of this color combination which to me is pretty dated.

In case I didn't mention it before, this project was a BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop. They do a dynamite job on BOMs (you should pardon the almost pun). Their directions are clear and they include plenty of fabric.

Not a palette you have used in recent memory - congratulations for bringing the UFO to completion (great post BTW, penultimate included).

Well done on the progress on this dated UFO! I look forward to seeing what you add to the perimeter in the coming week or so.

I aspire to search for a UFO from a 2001 guild Brown Bag project in which anyone could make a block (up to the maximum allowed size), put it into a brown bag with a few instructions (like please use Christmas red, no orange, or whatever) and add fabrics if you chose to. The bags were swapped at each guild meeting over a three month period. If you participated, you took someone else's bag home to add some sort of border, keeping the instructions in mind, and finishing your addition before the next guild meeting when the process of swapping bags would be repeated. The 4th month, the guild program was the Brown Bag revelations and it was amazing how difficult it was to spot your own block after 3 borders had been added!
