Julie asked fellow bloggers to show their oldest UFO. I think this is it...I think. The book that I got the pattern from calls it a Japanese Fan. I have used all 30's reproductions from the Aunt Grace line. There are some golden oldies in there from original fabric line. There are twelve rows in all, and I have four rows stitched together. On row five I found a stain of some kind on one of the white sections. That irritated me and I didn't feel like taking it out and replacing it at the time. I put it away - for a very long time. I am guessing twelve to thirteen years ago. I decided it was time to get it out and work on it. I replaced the white section and am ready to sew the fifth row on. Did I mention that I am hand piecing this? Why did I decided to hand piece it? I don't remember, it was too long ago! *G* Really, I like the portability of projects that are pieced by hand. I can work on them while on car trips. When hubby drives I will fall asleep if I don't have something to do. Hand work fits the bill! I will show another project soon that hubby calls my lifetime project. I may have been working on that project for about 10 years! So, what is your oldest UFO? And if you are a non quilter and have read this post this far probably out of kindness, what is your project that has been put up in the closet or forgotten about? I know you have some too even if it isn't quilt related!
All the Way to Wytheville!
