A 20 Year Old UFO and Some New Old Fabric!

I'm kinda in the finish-it-up mode and when we took off for our month long vacay, I reached WAY back in the UFO pile for this project!  I guess I was in my contemporary art quilt period when I started this one 20+ years ago.  Hand-dyed fabrics were just hitting the market and I figured why not?  So I decided to use 4 of them to design a cityscape in different times of day.  I drew the paper pieced design on graph paper and numbered each diamond.  You can click on the pics to enlarge.

Then I figured out where each fabric would go and numbered the paper pieces to coordinate.  Here are the first two blocks showing morning and midday (in reverse)...

Evening and night are still in progress....

I'll let you know if they ever get done!

Did you know I went to Festival?  Had a great time and got to see lots of pals which is the very best part, of course.  Didn't buy much but found a few decent feedsacks both there and antiquing.

My favorite finds were vintage yardage.  LOVE those strawberries in two colorways!

Hope you're having a great week and we'll see you next time!
