First Quarter UFO Challenge – Drawing Winners

From January to March (the first quarter of 2018), about 20 blog readers have been diligently working to complete UFOs. I promised to put their name in the hat for each UFO they completed. It’s time to announce the winners in the drawing.

(Drumrollllll) The winners in the drawing for a free McCall’s Quilting magazine are Elaine F. and Judy B. I will write to you ladies requesting a USPS address. Elaine completed the two projects she pledged to work on, and Judy completed all four! Congratulations, ladies.

To add a little eye candy to this post, I’ll show you two of Karla’s finishes for the First Quarter. First up is her “You’ve Got Mail” quilt begun in 2013 when she began her quilting journey. (Karla blogs at mysewfulretirement.wordpress.com) Karla followed (Missouri Star Quilt Company) Jenny Doan’s tutorial for the quilt and used the Eclectic Elements line of fabric designed by Tim Holtz.

Karla finished the top of her string-pieced quilt. It  is made with a collection of African prints — cotton, kente cloth, wax prints and silk. “When I learned the string piecing technique, I didn’t understand the importance of  being consistent on where to place the first strip to create the diamond.- my blocks’ seams don’t all match :(. Definitely a lesson learned.”

Thanks for sharing your lovely quilts with us, Karla.

 It’s time for the Second Quarter Challenge; I’ll write about it in the next blog post.
