FOTY 2018 Finished Top

Work is closed for summer break this week. As a result, I worked like a demon all week and was able to finish the FOTY 2018 top and back. I didn’t need to finish it. Since I was taking quilts to Colleen today, I decided taking four quilts is better than taking three.

The quilt wasn’t difficult to piece since all the squares are 2.5 inches. The difficult part was keeping the pieces in order as I sewed. After I got pairs sewed together, I started using the opposite side of the quilt as leaders/enders and that made the process go faster.  I also had a lot of time Wednesday to sew.

This isn’t exactly the way I imagined it to come out. I kind of wanted it to be more like Ellsworth Kelly’s piece. I think to achieve that, I needed more black.

Add the black has kind of reinvigorated my interest in this series. I might continue after FOTY 2019. Stay tuned.

    1. IT WAS! I wasn’t sure how it would come out and if the whole exercise was worth the effort. I think it came out really well and it kind of invigorated the series for me.
