Yester-Year Challenge

Christine over at Quilt Monster In My Closet started the Yester-Year Challenge
to get some of those UFOs older than five years finished….
and of course, there are a few of those in my closet!!!
so this month, I finished this little baby quilt that was a mystery quilt project
with my Honeybees Guild back in… okay, I know it’s been more than five years,
but exactly when??? can’t say…. lol!
And it was perfect timing…
it made a perfect baby gift for one of my co-workers!
Last year, Edyta Sitar was a guest on The Quilt Show and talked about her book
Friendship Strips & Scraps and gave ideas on hosting a strip exchange…
Yeah, I had to join their strip exchange!
I also started one with my Cherry Blossom Quilters Guild.
This is how we’re using the strips for one of the quilts in the book
(2 of the girls have already finished theirs!)
I added some peaches in honor of my sweet Georgia
and modified the pattern’s doors and windows just a bit.
My next step is adding a little more detail to the “glass”
and then will be ready to stitch down the appliques, Yay!
This is my favorite one with the little kids in the windows!

    Your baby quilt is so soft and pretty. I am sure it made a wonderful baby gift.

    That neighborhood with the houses and FABULOUS trees is adorable!!!! That is such a great use of the strips. The kids in the windows are too cute too.
