UFO Quilt Top Finished!

Another UFO quilt top finished!
Bonnie Hunter's quilt design "Criss Cross Applesauce". 
 While this is a name easier to remember and to say, I've named my version something apple related also but with a nod to the Civil War. When the quilt is totally finished, I'll reveal its name.

I really used a lot of my green fabric stash for this quilt which is good! 

I pieced the backing out of fabric in my stash and lets just call it "creative". Tomorrow, I'm delivering the quilt top and backing to the machine quilter and I hope to get it back sometime in February.

UFO #3 is calling me but I'm not sure what I want to do with it. Continue with the original plan or take it apart and start over? I'm leaning toward starting over. Watch for pictures of it next week!

Until next time, Mayleen 


  1. Congrats on this stunning finish. I love the way the diamonds look like sprinkled confetti. All the best for your year of finishing UFOs.

  2. Good for you! I love the way the diamonds look like they are floating! Great quilt!

  3. Is this a free pattern of Bonnie's? It's really a great looking quilt.

  4. What a great quilt. Love the way the reds and pink squares sparkle! I have a way of being 'creative' with my backings too, using up what's at hand. I tell myself I'm practicing my 'improv' style.:)

  5. Love your quilt. Such great colors.
    Which of her books is it in?
