UFO Challenge – Pastel Quilt Update

” …. a long and winding road..” That’s what I think I heard my pastel quilt humming the day I pinned it to the design wall for the last time. I, on the other hand, asked, where’s the marching band? Drum roll? Pastel bits of confetti? Okay, so maybe it isn’t worth a whole marching band, but this has been 14 years in the making, so marching band or not, it’s still a big deal!

Since I created my own random block arrangement, without thinking too far ahead, I backed myself into a bind when I got to the lower right hand corner, fresh out of blocks, with a gaping, odd shaped, empty spot. So I made this to fill the void.Last blockThen I sewed the last few seams, added borders, measured and seamed the backing and it’s ready for the quilter!

With no further adieu, let me introduce my FINISHED Pastel Quilt top:Completed Pastel QuiltLet’s share the moment by linking to Patchwork Times where you can see what others are working on. As for me, I’m taking a break from pastels and working on this UFO for awhile:006 See  related posts: UFO Challenge, UFO Project Update  and The Pastel Project – A Week Later

  1. Oh MY. What a beauty. You must be an applique lover for sure. They are both beautiful. I hope your quilter does all your handwork justice. Congrats on such a major accomplishment. It is a work of love. I really like your fall spool design. Those are more my choice of colors too.
