I have a flurry of new projects this year, including American Patchwork & Quilting’s UFO Challenge. March’s project is already done, but I am stuck on February. My UFO is a practice piece I did years ago to try corded white work. I was reading Kathryn Berenson’s book “Quilts of Provence” and wanted to try my hand at some. It’s not a precious piece because the “cording” that I used is just acrylic yarn that I had around the sewing room and it’s not big enough that the hand quilting was such a major investment. Here’s the original:
My original plan for finishing this UFO was to stretch it over a frame and hang it. But, it’s not that interesting so then I thought I might add some color and make it an art quilt to hang. I had a great time painting, but I’m not that excited about the results. My inclination at this point is to finish this UFO by throwing it out. Here’s what it looks like now. What do you think? Can it be saved or should I just let it go and move on?
