I am a Scottie Dog junkie and during the Holiday season, I decorate our sunroom with all my scottie stuff. We have an ottoman on the porch and I thought it needed a plaid quilted throw for it. So, I pulled out our holiday fabric tub in search of inspiration. What I found was one of Donna’s UFOs. It had a white center, a green flange, and a red border. The red border was already quilted. Hummm…. this could be a nice pillow.
So I took Donna’s UFO (that she couldn’t remember what it was supposed to be) and created a new holiday pillow for our Scottie sunroom. I suspect that it was a sample for a class she taught in making a flange.
I quilted the white area, appliquéd a plaid Scottie on it, and turned it into a pillow.
Earlier this year, Donna took one of my UFO (a Hawaiian appliqué) and deconstructed it and put it into an Art Quilt). Now I’ve finished one of her UFOs. I guess we’re even now.
This got me thinking, perhaps we should do a UFO challenge and give our fellow quilters one of our UFOs and let them do whatever they want to with the UFO to re-imagine it into something new and wonderful.
