Countdown Complete

Another UFO finished over the weekend!  In late fall 2013 Temecula Quilt Shop had a quilt-along for an adorable quilt she called Countdown to Christmas.  I enjoyed making the tiny 2-inch (finished) stars and four-patch blocks.  But there were way too many of them!  I ran out of ambition, (and 1 1/2 inch scraps)  so I finally just gave in and made up a 38x46 lap quilt using the blocks I had finished.  Better to have a finished quilt than another UFO, right?

Then it sat... and sat... while I tried to find borders that I liked, which ended up being navy with stars and red with stars.  It's finally finished!  I may gift this one to my Aunt who is in a nursing home.  In a strange twist of fate, though I live in Minnesota, my Aunt lives only about an hour's drive from the Temecula Quilt Shop in California!

  1. Love it! Anything with stars just calls my name. Doesn't it feel so good to get those UFO's pushed out. I think you should schedule a visit with your Aunt!
