When I decided to take the bucket skill challenge for January, I had NO IDEA it would turn into a major fiasco. Well, our new bucket skill for February has already been drawn and I'm just finishing up my stack and whack project.
When I began, it didn't occur to me that I would be making eight blocks. LOL I thought I'd stitch up a block or two and decide what to do with them later. HA! My conscience couldn't take this attitude with eight blocks, so I had to create a quilt around these blocks. There was not enough fabric to finish it off with borders on all four sides, so I started cutting it apart in strategic places; added gold or green or burgandy-wine fabric strips. Some places I had to add some kona snow and some fancy machine stitching.
This is the result. My quilt is finally finished and I just might be keeping this one for myself. (wink)
Thank you, Debby Kratovil, for your tutorial to make these blocks. You can see all my posts for making this project here. Gee, what will I do next?
