I started this quilt in 2011 after completing a smaller version of this quilt in 2010. I enjoyed quilting it in the beginning, but lost enthusiasm and put the project away for several years. I finally decided this year that it needed to be done so that I didn’t have to think about it languishing in a closet. I’m glad it’s done because it looks so much better outside of the closet!

A mystery quilt from some years back is finally finished! Some embroidery, lots of hand quilting, and a two-color binding made this quilt fun to work on. My son Jared says it’s actually named “Tails.”

During the shutdown, I began looking at my UFO’s (UnFinished Objects) and found this 2005 kit of Buck-a-Block using Thangles. I bought the kit at Lady Bug Hill Quilt Shop while living in Colorado Springs, a block each month. The pattern is copyrighted 1999 by Mary B. Hayes.
Having completed only 1 block, I started working in the late fall of 2020 and completed it in time for Valentine’s Day 2021. Check out the backing fabric found after the quilt was pieced – just perfect for a Red and White quilt!
