Pattern by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolf
From the Book "Successful Scrap Quilts"
This one was a quilt on my 2012 UFO list, though not the one I was supposed to be working on this month. But hey, it's now off the list, which leaves just 3 UFOs.
Project #7 on my list was the Layer Cake Quilt Along project from 2010. I didn't pull it out to work on till last weekend. Even so, I did make some progress. The plan was to sash the blocks with black as that looked OK in EQ.
But what looks good in EQ doesn't always work when you put the actual fabrics next to each other. The border fabric looks like it has a black background, but it's really a very dark brown. So the black fabric didn't look really great with it, even though it did work with many of the blocks. So I went looking for something else and finally realized that teal would work with the border fabric.
Going with teal meant changing some of the framing strips on the blocks, but that could be managed. So after 2 nights spent on making a decision on the sashing fabric, I did finally start cutting and sewing the framing strips on the blocks. I managed to get 3 of the 12 blocks framed.

The strips are cut to frame 3 more of the blocks. Not a lot of progress this month, but it should go much faster now that all the fabric choices have been finalized and I actually have a plan. Not great progress, but at least there was progress.
