I'm back: Work in progress on another UFO

It's been quite a while since I've posted. It's been pretty busy for the last month. My friend Rebecca is running for Town Council and I've been setting up her website. We decided to do it cheaply and I've discovered a whole new world of blog hackers. So I've been editing/cutting/pasting html code to make a blog operate like a website AND IT WORKED.

I'm now away for 2 weeks at the house in Virginia and I have the time to post here again. I'm working on another UFO.

This quilt is made from blocks obtained in a block swap. The theme was plaid crazy quilt blocks. The blocks were assembled when it went on the UFO list so I've been designing and working on the boarder. All that plaid needed a break so I added a small muslin inner border. The outer boarder is randomly sized pieces of plaid.

I was three blocks short of the number needed for this hanging so I inserted solid blocks. I intend to hand quilt adinkra symbols in these blocks. I'll be back with a better picture when it's finished.

I'm faced here with what happens when a project remains unfinished for some time. I'm evolving pretty rapidly when it comes to quilts. I'm not sure what I'll do with this one when it's finished. I still like the concept and it's definitely worth completing but my quilt sense has changed. Well, it will make a nice studio piece or a gift.

I like your choice of fabrics and the idea of quilting some adinkra symbols into it.
