I also pieced 3 other quilts and one of these is complete  They were projects that I started in July hopefully to be Chrismas presents.

I hit a wall in the first week of October.  Mother(89y) was hospitalized for high blood pressure and my productive sewing life went down hill from there. After a hospital stay, she became a resident at our house with multiple issues. Resulting in finally moving her to a retirement center December 15th.  Needless to say, I got very little done in the sewing room.

Christmas came and went quickly; we made a quick trip to Texas;  New Year happened; I made a trip yesterday to Tuscaloosa, AL.

Today was the first time I have had a day to myself since October.  Oh, it was great!  It is nice to have a lazy day now and then.

I hope tomorrow I can get the house cleaned and prepare for 2018.

log cabin

17UFO in 2017 project #12

basket of strips for quilt

The fabric for this project was purchased Aug. 2016 from Stitch and Frame, when I attended the Old Man River quilt show in Vicksburg, MS.  Almost time for another quilt show.....I was reminded when... I called today to order more of the brown fabric needed for the setting triangles.

The pattern sheet above was title Spice Market and is done in all brown.  As you see, brown is not my color and not sure just how the layout will be.

I wanted to enlarge the quilt, and you can see the stack of 80+ squares.

I started on the design wall but it is not going to be large enough, will move to the den floor when the extra material arrives.  Thinking I may add some random squares....or may find other interesting patterns when I get them all on the floor.
