The Ten Year Quilt

I started this quilt in 2005.  It was a mystery quilt through Glad Creations, and I choose the very bright fabric option which was WAY out of my comfort zone at the time.  Every time another clue came I cut and cut all those pieces and very carefully stored them waiting for the next clue.  And then they sat.  A few years ago I pieced the star blocks and then put them away again.  While cleaning my sewing room the other day getting ready for a sewing marathon I found them and decided it was long enough, this quilt needed to be finished.



I'm not sure why I quit working on this other than there are so many pieces, and it is a very time consuming quilt.  It is also very scrappy, and I have a hard time putting quilts together randomly.  Now to figure out how to quilt it, and get the other quilts pieced that I had planned on finishing this weekend.  I only have two quilts to finish that I have been in my to-do pile longer, maybe I can actually finish those this decade too!  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

It looks great! I'm amazed you hadn't lost any bits in the last ten years! I love seeing old ufos getting finished up :)

This is a masterpiece! Love the fabrics. I do the same thing...put things away for a long time, then rediscover them. So glad this one was brought out of hibernation....it's fabulous!!
