I’m way behind in the UFO challenge, but this is the one that I finished in April.
These are the dimensional (origami?) type of bow tie block that were received in a swap. All the blocks were made on treadle or hand crank machines made prior to 1900 using reproduction fabrics representing the pre-1900 goods. All blocks are signed by the quilter and also contain her location and the type and age of the machine that was used. It was quilted using my robotic quilting machine-quite the contrast in technology.
Meanwhile, another UFO is on the quilting machine, I hope to get the quilting finished today. The backing for another UFO is being pre-washed so that it will be ready to put on the quilt machine as soon as the other comes off. I will catch up, I will catch up, I will, I will…..
Take a look at the amazing work other quilters are doing as part of the UFO Challenge here: http://www.patchworktimes.com/2011/05/04/april-ufo-completions
