It's "Aunt Sukey's Sampler" from "Five is Fabulous" by Marti Michell.
This was the 2014 "Block of the Month" project at Ruth's Stitchery.
As with many UFOs. now that it is nearly finished, I could kick myself for taking so long to finish it! As soon as I finished the last block, I put all the blocks on the design wall. And fell in love! Every bit I added to this quilt, I liked it more. And now that there is just the last border (the medium blue), I can't wait to get it to the quilter and onto my bed. I especially love the tiny gingham checks in the setting blocks and cornerstones.
Here's a closeup:
Most of the other fabrics are from Maywood.
Shoot, I cut off the selvedge identifier when I cut the setting triangles. And I must have trashed it back then, because I don't have any left. I don't know who the manufacturer of this pretty border fabric is -- but I do know I bought it at High Prairie Quilts in Parker. They still had some left last week when I stopped by on my way to the airport to pick up my co-author.
My 2015 UFO list has 15 projects on it. And only TWO have been crossed off! How is your UFO list looking?
Come back tomorrow to see the new "A Quilt Block a Day." I promise, it's an easy one!
