Dark Hidden Wells
My March UFO was basically a Hidden Wells pattern. I learned this method from a brochure written by Mary Ellen Hopkins. For this quilt top, rather than sew together many strips, I thought it would be interesting to try a shortcut by using a border fabric that already had a large design in lengthwise strips. I have had this top folded in my UFO box for a while, so you can see some wrinkles that I wasn't able to iron out completely. With another pass of the iron, it should be ready to quilt. The question is, how many more years will it take me to finish this one? And who would want such a dark quilt? It's not big enough for anything but the wall.
