A new UFO :-)

Last week I am treated by Dawn with two new Books !! One book is full with antique quilts displayed in gorgeous rooms . The other book is full with inspiring words from Gwen Marston and Freddy Morgan . Droling the whole week over the beautiful quilts made me that I want to start with a new one. But that also means that a other quilt is added to my pile of UFOs. ...... mmm. It is not a good feeling to sew with a "pile of UFOs on my back"
Gwen's inspirationwords give me a light ......

So I wake up on saturday with the idea to make a quilt from my Ufos and grab my pile and pin some randomly on a sheet !

Do I like it??? My husband thought is is a mess. Lesson number one from Freddy Morgan
So I decided to sew first all the "quilts" together.

I started with my New York Beauty. It was a project from last year ago on a retrait. Over two weeks we have the retrait again. And I will see all the finished beauties. Wouldn't it be great that I can show a finished quilt with the beauties in it ??

Next part I sewed together was my other Ufo If you look good at the picture you can see that I got some company with music :-)

Oh Lucy! What started out as a random mess is truly beautiful and a work of art now. And can you believe - when I looked at it this morning I said - WOW I want to make a quilt just like that!

My favoites are your NY beauty blocks and the ones on the top middle. Well ok and the flying geese ones! :)

I LOVE this quilt. Oh and the border fabric is to die for!
