So what's next? One thing I've been looking at are these beautiful blocks that were made by my very dear friend, Jill Reid, before she passed away last spring. Our friend, Susan, gave them to me to finish.
This was the last project on Jill's design wall. The block is called "Wheel of Fortune".
Susan and I don't know much about this quilt, or what Jill intended. Susan also found these large pieces of coordinating fabrics.
Here is the block that Jill drafted and colored. It makes me so sad every time I look at her notes.
Quite by accident I found this quilt with the block in it. I had never seen this block before.
So I'll have to see how things turn out with this inherited UFO. It's a special project near to my heart.
BIG UFO GIVEAWAY!!
#1 Halloween Four Patch Posie. Comes with finished blocks, strips to make more blocks and some fabric. Finish, or use anyway you want.
#2 - Tumbler Jack 'O Lantern tumbler top I made last year.
