Out of order UFO Challenge

Judy’s 2012 UFO Challenge pick for March was #8.  Hmmm, that one on my list would have been impossible to finish this month so instead I finished the quilt listed as #7 on my list.  I figure as long as I finish one project a month, I’m doing OK and meeting the challenge.  I’ve shown this quilt before, but now it is quilted, bound, and hanging in my hallway – a true finish.

The pattern is from June 2008 issue of AllPeopleQuilt.Com and the designer is Avis Shirer of Joined At The Hip.  The pattern is called “Hometown Parade”.  I renamed my quilt “Checkerboard Houses”.

In my possession is a Grandma Moses print of The Old Checkered House, a famous painting with a red and white checkerboard farm house.  I’ve always loved this print and have wanted to do checkerboard houses on a quilt for a long time.

I’m hoping Judy picks #4 for April.  Why?  Because I already have that one done!!!!

  1. Love this quilt and thank you for sharing it with us. We also enjoy unstructured days and find that we look at our "Day-of-the-Week" clock more than our "Time-of-the-Day clock. Enjoy your days and warmest wishes from one retiree to another. Judy C
