"This quilt was something else to make. Mainly because I have Windows 10 and didn't realize the PDF files printed in whatever size Windows decided. You could choose "Actual". And I had cut out all the diamonds which was the template…"

This was a free pattern from Fabricaddict. I made the Queen Size version for my younger daughter. I live in small place and finding a way to sandwich this top will be a challenge! Might resort to going to my church and putting tables together to get…

thanks for the invite. i do not consider blocks as UFO's. i also don't consider vintage or antique unfinished quilt tops as UFO's. have several. they are colectables. and if i finish them great. if not...the fabric is why i acquire them...not to finish something left behind by a passing or physical inability to finish by another long ago quilter. and the blocks? i make muslin samples to test block pattern from old mags or of my design ...then sample of scrap fabric to further test block. now i have eq to more easily test color mixes....but i have lots of solitary blocks, mine and those of other quilters from the past. i am a graph person, now an eq person. i know that in the past, and now, many quilters make blocks w/o planning. when they have a quilt top the size they want they usually have what is now referred to as "orphan" blocks. either as test blocks or excess blocks...they were not i tended to all be used in a quilt. ergo- i don't consider them ufo's. is that wrongful thinking? don't know. don't much care. i just like to have fun...and quilting is my fun - the ROGUE quilter :))
