This week's PQ Season 6 challenge was to finish a UFO or orphan blocks, so I pulled this piece out of my my UFO stash. I started it in a class with Liz Porter in 1987 at the Wisconsin Quilters symposium. The class was called Woven Applique Baskets. The weaves in the basket are made from a striped fabric; I cut the stripes to make the weaves. The project came home with me, with just the basket part done and some flowers and leaves cut. I have pulled it out a couple of times and put it back. The PQ challenge was the right one to finally make me finish it.
I call it "Liz Meets Kaffe After 28 Years" because I started the class with Liz and I finished the project using Kaffe Fasset fabrics. It is 18" square and I quilt in Reedsburg, WI. I think I should win a prize for the oldest UFO!
I'm not really happy with the binding, so I will probably take it off and re-do it. I think it isn't great because I just wanted to get it done. Outside of the binding, I think it turned out great.
