& take a trip in the way back machine!
This UFO was started in the fall 2004 (no, it is not my oldest UFO.) after a trip to Skyline Drive. At the time I was active on Stashbusters & into Nickel Quilts. So I traded for some of the fabrics. I was also still into Orientals. There are several in the parts that I have sewn so far. I have no idea why this languished, I still love the concept and the fabrics, the blue triangles have been cut & waiting to be attached to the small squares forever... (I do know that for a while, it was filed meticulously away - aka misplaced/lost.)
The quilt that I am making is Shaded 4-patch from the Nickel Quilts (by Pat Speth) book.
Only I was thinking of piecing my units randomly, instead of they way they are shown (Although the zigzag is pretty neat...), since I am using leafy fall fabrics with a sky blue background- mimicing the falling leaves...
Here is a "mock-up" of my block.
Here is a pile of nickels (waiting to become the large triangle):
& a portion of what I have sewn so far:
Can you see some of those oldies? It really is fun including them in this quilt, those calico browns really do have a fall feel to them! (I am so ready for fall... Not a summer gal here.)
So that is what I am working on, what are you doing?
