    Did you try a larger needle? Sometimes that works for me when I have thread shredding.

    At least you finished it and it is lovely. I agree about leaving it in the car. For sure, leave in trunk when not in use. It is beautiful and you learned a lot. We all admire you. Hurray for one more UFO off your list.

    Yayyyyy, I'm getting to post my second finish for this month!!! A real rarity for me. This was already a flimsy so all I had to do was the backing, layering, quilting and binding. I'm thrilled to post a finished quilt: Seasonal Greens made for my DGS. The pattern is Scattered D9P, I started it early in Dec. 2011. Put it aside, worked on it again off and on thru 2012, put it aside, and now it is finished!!! Woohooooo!!Name:  Seasonal Greens finished.jpg

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Scattered (or scrambled) D9P is where you go thru the usual steps of making a D9P, except after you cut the 9P into quarters, you toss all the parts into a box or bag and mix them together. Then you just select 4 at random and sew them together into a block. After sewing all the quarters back into blocks, then toss the blocks together and again select at random to sew them together into the rows for your quilt.
    This is great for very scrappy, which mine pretty much is. The only thing I kept consistent is that I used the same fabric for the center square in all the 9P. That is the pale gray that you see throughout the quilt.
