    UFO Finishes, with a little help!

    These three quilts have been UFO for a long time! They were in a pile next to my longarm for many months! Or they were unfinished blocks sitting in a tub waiting to be put together. I decided to bite the bullet and let the pros with the computerized longarm help me out! They did not disappoint! Almost 1/3 of the cost of our beloved M*, and pretty quick to finish! I picked them up today. And dropped off 3 more for them to do! Wow, the beds will all have new quilts and more to choose from!

I had all the 9 patch blocks made( several hundred), just couldn’t figure out how to assemble it. Finally thought of a way to manage it this spring. Pattern found in a book called Tradition with a Twist by Young and Stone.

I started this spiral lone star that year. Karen inspired me with a picture of one. It was just 60” square and I wanted it to fit my bed. It took a while to figure out how to enlarge it, so I made slightly smaller spiral Star sections using narrower strips. It has several piano key borders to finally get it big enough. She custom quilted it with feather wreaths in the black negative spaces between the Star legs. I probably love this one best of all three! There is an actual pattern in a book called Lone Star Quilts and beyond by Jan Krentz. Hers is way more fancy with FPP New York Beauty crowns between the Star legs!

    They all need to be bound and matching pillowcases made.

    Those are all very nice. I always think the ones you quilt are brilliant and don't see this professional long armer better than the work I see you do eventhough it is fantastic. I love your longstar but the top 9 patch is my favorite. I think the way it is put together is very creative

        Jean,

        It's not fair! I can't pick one as my favorite. They are all spectacular, but I would be leaning toward the Blooming Nine Patch, but I'm sure I'll change my mind tomorrow!

              Those are great finishes! You brought those UFO quilts right into the star galaxy. It would be hard to choose which one to sleep under. Enjoy!

                            Three beautiful finishes, glad I don't have to pick a favorite would be a tough decision.
