Can someone please explain why I suddenly feel like finishing this very old project? It's become my latest obsession.
Here are 40 of the 54 blocks I've accumulated since uncovering the package of 35 blocks and many many strips from a fabric swap in 2002, some still hermetically sealed in their press-n-seal wrappings.
Since sharing this very old scrap project over the weekend, I have since found a link to the designer's quilt pattern - showing two possible layouts:
Summer Vine and Ebb and Flow
I also found the original block directions from Simply Quilts on the internet Wayback Machine, here:
My design wall shows another layout possibility and the one that I am considering, which will include a combination of thick and thin sashing between the blocks - please excuse the oops blocks in the second row ... how come we never see these things until after the photo is taken and posted for the whole world-wide net to see?
If I ever wondered about just how old some of the fabrics in my scrap bins are ... how about this side-by-side image.
On the left is one of the Violet blocks I made a few weeks ago, using a blue-violet print from my scrap bin for this month's Block Lotto–at least I paired it with a very modern Allison Glass background. On the right is a block that I made in 2002 from the same fabric, which was likely purchased for this fabric swap.
As soon as I prepare the sneak peek for the Block Lotto that will be going out tomorrow–so be sure to post your violet blocks if you haven't already–I will inevitably be returning to this very old UFO that now urgently wants to be finished ... maybe it's not me being compulsive, but the quilt that is pushing me to finish the darn thing ;-)
I am linking with Linky Tuesday and Mid-week Makers with this WIP Wednesday post.
