This is another of my quilts that came from the Rick Rack Nines quilt by Bonnie Hunter that I ended up deciding not make when it was already partially assembled. Crazy yes, but I just didn’t have a use for a king sized monstrosity of a quilt and the assembly of it was not going well by any stretch of the imagination. The instructions were good, it was just too big for me to handle even during assembly.
So I made my own mini Zig Zag version of Bonnie’s quilt that will go to charity.
I did some simple machine quilting using a wavy stitch on my Sapphire along the seams of the blocks and in a cross-hatch pattern. I wanted a few curves in the quilting to offset all the straight seams in the piecing.
I found a fun backing for this quilt that reminded me of the tetris video game with the little blocks of various colours.
This is another quilt off the UFO list. This makes 17 (or maybe 18 I need to double check my list) UFO’s completed this year. Sadly, I’m going to run out of year before I run out of UFO’s. However, unless I get new start happy between now and December I should start 2020 with less UFO’s than I started 2019 with, so at least progress is being made.
