Next, Judy has chosen our UFO Challenge project for January. #5 . That means I'll be working on The Puzzler, a project from the Nov. '05 issue of Quilters' Newsletter. I think that's a good choice. It makes me happy. I have the piecing done and just need to sew the pieced border to the main pieced top, then layer, quilt and bind. It's expected to measure 70"x89" when done, and 'quilting' is still a bit intimidating unless I do just straight lines, lol.

This shows the main piecing of the quilt, very scrappy, and each block a sample of different blocks within.

Here it is laid on a bed with the side pieced borders laid next to it. Once the borders are on all the way around, I'll need to decide how I want to quilt it...for me, that's the real challenge, I think even moreso than actually quilting.

So, let's get rolling into 2012.


  1. I'll be working on my pineapple quilt. One that I've left alone for ages because I'm not sure how to put the center together. Yeesh!! I better get *busy*! Your Puzzler is loverly! That will be a nice finish for you! :)

  2. This quilt is beautiful!! (happy new year! :-)

  3. Love it! That's going to be a beauty. Good luck with your 2012 challenge projects, and Happy New Year!

  4. This is great! Isn't it nice to look forward to having another UFO completed?

  5. Wonderful--I like the generous sample of the same blocks in different colors in each big block. Enjoy! I agree, the quilting is the hardest part.

  6. LOVELOVELOVE! scrappy is the best, and i love how this quilt really showcases each block! great job! i finally got my 2012 UFO's organized and posted, so i'm looking forward to the next drawing!
