CaptureYes I know I have too many things I am working on right now but I want to clear up all the ufo’s before the end of the year – I don’t really have many in the piecing stage actually but I have quite a few waiting in line to be quilted – this one will be added to that stack.  I started a quilt called “Dutch Treat” over a year ago.  It consists of 4 inch blocks, reverse applique.  Tiny little buggers!! I lost interest in it.  I really thought I would like it and maybe if I had enlarged the blocks to 5 inches or 6 inches I would still be interested in it.  I had 36 blocks finished  (I think there are 169 in the quilt total so that tells you how far I got before I lost interest which I don’t usually do) so what I decided to do with them to get them finished is make a table topper with them.  Here is what I have so far:

The blocks are all 4 inches finished size.  This is a quarter of it put together.  I think I will put a inch sashing of each color around the outside edge as a border - that will finish it to 50 inch square.  I have so much fabric left over I know I will find something to use it for.  I had gotten a bolt of each of these two batiks.

(the actual quilt top only consist of the reverse applique blocks with thin sashing in between them and then a border)

In a day or two I will gather all the quilt tops together and take a photo to show you what is waiting in line to be quilted.  When I finish this top it will just leave me with the second Dear Jane top to be finished and then whatever I start with the box of moda samplers that I got a couple weeks ago.  That will be amazing to only be working on two tops at one time – how much you want to bet it won’t last long and there will be a third one added to that!

Here is one more Dear Jane block from my “Insanity Revisited” quilt:

  1. I remember seeing the ‘Dutch Treat’ book and wisely stayed away from it. Your blocks are lovely. Great fabrics.

  2. Love the colors you chose for the Dutch Treat. I remember when you started it and at one time, I thought I might do it, also. But, since I’m just learning needle-turn applique, I chose not to start Dutch Treat. I just did not feel I was ready for reverse applique. Yours looks wonderful!

  3. I love the colours you used in Dutch Treat!

    I can’t wait to see what you make with your Moda Sampler box.:)

  4. I am impressed that you only have a few UFO’s and can get them done by the end of the year! That is excellent!! I wish I only had a few too. The batiks in the quilt are just beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing your parade of UFO’s.

  5. I love the green batik you used for your Dutch Treat and it will make a beautiful table topper. I quit those tiny ones after making only 4 or 5 of them, 6 inch is a great size for these, not so fiddly.

  6. I love the batik in the Dutch Treat too!

  7. I love your little blocks set with the darker batik squares…it looks like the you did some kind of wonderful fabric lacework!

    I don’t even want to think about UFOs if you’re including quilt tops that need to be quilted!:)

  8. I sincerely wish I could finish up things by the end of the year but I’m making a resolution to finish up things before starting new things. I wonder if I can do it?
