Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

UFO Challenge #12

I said  I was done when I finished the SQG 2021 BOM. I was wrong.

This is the Green & Cream or was it Cream and Green Swap Block?  Either way, the blocks were swapped in 2006. I don’t have notes to know what group I swapped these in.  Since it is that old, I started of doing quilt-as- you-go — not my favorite method as evidenced by it still not being finished 7 years after I planned to give it as a Christmas gift! Normally, I don’t TELL the person I’m giving them a quilt so I can just kick the quilt down the line, but this time, I gave them a piece of paper that looked like this:

In the past 7 years I managed to get the top two rows sewn together and to each other and had part of the 3rd row done.  Saturday morning I decided the only way this quilt was going to be finished was if I ripped out all of the quilting and assembled it so it could be quilted on the long arm.  And that’s what I did.  Before I went to bed, I had the quilt loaded on the machine ready to start quilting it.  I stayed up Sunday night after binding it to wash and dry the quilt.

I quilted it with 40wt Glide in Thyme.  The E2E design is Fresco Feathers.

Now to decide if I’m going to try and lift the green from the batik block or leave well enough alone.
