One of my goals this year is to finish or get rid of my UFOs. I made a list of them, and decided to start with the easiest:
This project was started in a 2005 workshop with Judith Larzelere. At that time it was unusual to work in all solids, so I took inspiration from Amish quilts and chose an Amish palette. The workshop featured Judith's strip piecing technique using Fibonacci proportions and sew-and-flip construction on a prepared backing. I ended up with this piece which measures about 11" x 38". I also ended up with a half yard of prepared (layered and basted) backing and a lot of fabric pieced into the first step but not cut into the narrow strips yet.
I decided to just bind the finished portion as a table runner. Voila, a finish!
This table runner and the leftover parts need a new home so I'll put it into the orphan adoption event my guild is having later this year. I want it gone!
Binding is just a little finish, but at least it's a start toward dealing with my UFOs. One down, many more to go...
Linking up with Friday Finish at Crazy Mom Quilts and Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
