First 2014 finish

This is one UFO that I am pleased to tick of my list as its been in my UFO pile since 2011.

It started as a BOM, and is meant to be a 9 block quilt, but I made one of the blocks off centre and didn't have any fabric to do another, so it got put away.

Then I thought, why not make a wall hanging with 3 blocks, a lap rug with 4 blocks and 2 cushions with the remaining blocks, using the off centre block for a cushion.

So here is stage one of that UFO, the wall hanging.  The design is of course by Michelle Hill and the quilt is the Adelaide floral sampler.

very nice way to use up that UFO. thinking "outside the blocks" sometimes helps. I have one that started as play and the colors are not really me. BUT they DO go in my bathroom so I will make a quilted curtain for warmth and privacy.
