UFO - Primitive Flower Applique

Today is day 22 of Blogtoberfest. And I am still blogging daily. Unbelievable!


I had to choose another UFO to finish and I picked #11, one of my first hand-appliqued quilts. I took a BOM class with Lucy Anne at the Quilter's Garden when it was still in business. It was very early in my quilting career - perhaps 8 or 10 years ago. I can tell by the lack of fabrics in the quilt. I didn't have a large stash yet at that time. Sorry, I can't remember what it is called or who designed it. I finished the top, and started quilting it when I first began to suffer from my neuro symptoms. It is quite large and I couldn't work on it then, so I put it away. Now I hope to finish it. But don't hold your breath! It's still a difficult task. I am going to quilt individual blocks - like maybe one per day until it is finished. I'll show it to you when I am done.

Slow and steady gets things finished, especially big ones that are hard to wrestle with.

One per day sounds like quite a lot already! Good luck!

A little at a time...mile by mile it is a trial, inch by inch it is a cinch!

It has all been said Hetty....yes the turtle still always wins. What I can see looks lovely.

You're getting there.......I know what you mean by things being started so long ago that we have no idea of the pattern name/author any longer!

you maybe feel like a turtle but remember that's the one that wins the race.

Slow but steady wins the race and will make a beautiful quilt. Enjoy the process. That's what is important.

I love turtle speed! Eventually a turtle gets to the finish too!!

Glad you are able to work on it now. That's the main thing.
