Rockin' the Golden Oldies for a Lovely Finish

January Goal for a Lovely FinishWhile other quilters are finishing up their January mystery quilts from yesterday, I have pulled out one of my golden oldie UFOs today–a New Year's Day mystery from quite a few years ago made from woven plaid flannels.

I have pulled out the quilt top and the pieced back with a plan to quilt it this month–my January goal for a Lovely Finish.

I had an idea of how I would quilt it (unmarked, free motion quilting designs), but after I pulled it out and actually looked at it for the first time in a long time, I see the proportions are different than I remembered them and I'm thinking my original plan ... I'm sure I'll have made a decision by the time I get it basted.

This is just a piece of it, photographed on top of my work table under the skylight while I have some good light in the studio. The quilt top is approximately 84 inches square.

84" square is a big beauty. I love the mix of the plaids, and the pattern, too. I haven't seen this one before. Guess it isn't that long that I've been following. I'd have remembered this one.

Just the kind of WIP I want to work on this coming year, Sophie. I invite you to link to WIPs Be Gone (a Friday post) and share this wonderful Eye Candy. Off to some slow EPP stitching which I am going to go do right now and defrost my toes.
