More UFO Challenge "before" photos

Pam Foss!

This is a current one Pam is working on as her #6 UFO.  The pattern is 'Happy Tree' by Stina Blomgren. Pam found her on Instagram,  #kviltstinapatterns. 

On another note, we are all mourning the upcoming loss of our favorite quilt shop and long-time meeting location, Ruby Street Quilt Works!  A search for a new meeting space is underway - will let you know as soon as a new location can be found!

Kicking off the new UFO challenge...

Here are Marti's UFOs in the "Before" photos

Marti's #6 UFO is a “Transparency Quilt” from a long-ago Quilt Colorado class with Bill Kerr of Modern Quilt Studio. Bill and his wife, Weeks Ringle, also designed our mystery quilt for 2018.

Marti labeled the boxes and bins without looking inside, to make the numbering truly random. One of them is Elizabeth Hartman’s “Fancy Forest” and another is a batik “Storm at Sea".

Send Teresa your "before" photos and we'll post them right here!
Click on "UFO" to see the form.  Fill it out and let the fun begin!

The February number is "6".
