February UFO – Plan B
Thank you for all of your kind advice for my February UFO – “Rabbits Prefer Chocolate”. Many of you thought that I should stick with hand quilting and that I would be happier in the long run. And some of you said, “Get it done!” by machine.
One of my followers, Rosa, thought that I should pick another quilt out of my cupboard and finish it by machine while I take my time hand quilting the Rabbits. Great idea, Rosa! Why didn’t I think of that?
So here is my February UFO, “Oh My Many Stars”!
The original pattern came from the magazine, American Patchwork & Quilting and was designed by Alex Anderson. You can still find the pattern at the APQ Shop here. I switched up the stars and added pinwheels to the center of the chain blocks.
I started quilting this over a year ago (probably two) so some of the work is already done. It is a fairly large quilt though, about 80″ x 80″. Yep, I’ll be
And in the meantime, I’ll have my “rabbits” to keep me warm while I sit on the couch stitching away.
I’m linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes.
I love this quilt and just bought the pattern thanks to your link, but I am wanting to do the pinwheels like you did, but am newer to quilting. How would I make the changes.
I am wanting to make it for my dad who is wheelchair bound and served for his country on several tours.
Love your Oh My Star quilt. Thanks for the link I bought the pattern. Seeing your quilt made me have to do it!
I love the red, white, and blue quilt. Spectacular. As luck or irony would have it, since I bought one of your UFOs, I now have that in my to do pile. Share the wealth, enthusiasm, and hobby, not to mention a pinch of frustration here and there
Love the star quilt. I put that on my list of one’s I want to make. thanks for sharing…Shirley
Good for you doing the rabbits by hand! I can’t wait to see the stars and pinwheels all finished! Good luck!
Seems like a great solution to me! Good one, Rosa!
Great plan! I love your stars quilt. I made my own version of that one, when it first came out, as a graduation gift for a Penn State-bound family member, and kept it all in blue and white. I’m crazy about your pinwheel additions and the variations on the stars! Can’t wait to see it all quilted.
Excellent idea and two beautiful quilts. But that doesn’t mean you can have March off!
