March 2015 UFO

I was very happy to actually finish my February UFO. I made six pillowcases from my stash! You can see how cute they turned out here.

I think I’m getting a strut going…I’ve finished January and February quilts also. But now the tough stuff is ahead. Most of the rest of the year is finishing flimsies. It is exciting though to anticipate new quilts with half the effort already done!

This month I’m starting on finishing (can you say that? start on finishing?) a flimsy I made in July 2011. It is from a Bonnie Hunter free pattern called Bricks and Stepping Stones.

I found a box full of 3.5” x 6.5” rectangles that my Aunt Marie had cut from scraps. It was perfect for the quilt; the rectangles were the size that was called for the bricks!


Here it is laid out on the floor at my quilty friend's house


It went together fairly fast, and I loved how it looked when I laid the blocks out on the floor. The funny thing that happened was, once sewn together, I didn’t like it anymore. It looked too busy. 

When I showed it to my husband, he adored it. He said it reminded him of the quilts his great-aunt Kitty made. Right then and there I told him he could have it.

I'm not posting a picture of the quilt as a flimsy because I'm lazy. I don't want to take a picture. And the second reason is that it doesn't look any different than the above, so it would be redundant!


My goal this month is to put the borders on and get it pinned for quilting.

I’m linking up with A Year of Lovely Finishes. You can find their badge on the right sidebar. Mosey on over and see what other quilters are pledging to do this month!
