Stash Busting UFO

This is the quilt that I have been working on lately out in my Summer Palace. I wanted to work on some of my UFO's (unfinished projects to all of my non-quilting readers), and decided this is the one I would work on. I began this project last fall while on vacation. I talked about starting it here. It is to large to spread out on a floor for a photo, so I just laid it across the couch and took a partial photograph. It will end up being a queen size quilt in the end. I added the blue border earlier today and will be adding a border of hour glass blocks next. It is a Bonnie Hunter design called My Blue Heaven. I am liking what I see so far. My fingers are crossed that the hour glass blocks will fit. This has been a stash busting quilt, which means I pulled the fabrics for it out of my stash. Okay... I bought a few more blue fabrics to go into this quilt, but not many! So, I guess I had better rephrase my statement. For the most part this has been a stash busting quilt. It didn't make a huge dent in my stash, but it did make a small one. I am beginning to think about how I want to quilt this baby. Such decisions!

What a beauty, love the colours you've used in this one, but then I'm partial to blues.

Wow - looks great. If the hourglass blocks don't fit, I bet you can improvise on the borders you've just added . . . that's the great thing about quilts - everything just works out in the end *s*
