    Still working on those UFO's...

    These are #17 & #18 (of 32 listed for the year--March to March). Both are a mystery quilt from last year by the Gourmet Quilter. I like doing 2 different colorwaves on the same pattern...shows how different they look. Thanks for looking.

    17 and 18 UFO's? Wow, I'm impressed that you have the discipline to keep at it. To me UFO means "unlikely finish oh-oh." I can't seem to go back and actually work on them, so I've been giving them to a friend in our guild. I don't know what she does with them, but it doesn't matter, as long as I don't have the guilt, I'm happy! Congratulations on getting these done!!!

    I love them, too! I, too, like to do color variations on patterns. I love what you did with this one! And congrats on making such a dent in your UFO's! I have a bunch you can work on next... LOL!

    Wow, they are both gorgeous and the color variation really does make for a different look for each. Not many of us would do the different colors for a pattern, I know I'd be glad that I got one done. Are you teaching, is that why you do the different colors?

    No, I don't teach. I just like to see the differences when I do that. I do scrappy quilts that way too. Sometimes I do 2 of each quilt, sometimes just 1, & recently I did a BOM in 3 different batches of scraps. They are also on my list for the UFO's for the year...hopefully will get them finished in the next couple months.
