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!
