My Oldest Work In Progress

Today’s Quilters Daily Post is about your oldest Work In Progress Quilt. Julie shared hers first, and I really had to look hard for mine! It was really buried!! My oldest WIP has got to be this bargello kit. I’ve had it since Christmas of 2007. So far I’ve put in about two hours per year. If I keep it up, in 15 years, I’ll have a gorgeous new quilt!

WIP Lightning Strikes Bargello

These are the remaining strips to be put together. See that swatch page? Really glad I made that!

A strip set from the Lightning Strikes Bargello.

20 fabrics make up this beautiful queen size quilt. (Just pretend it's nicely pressed OK?) The kit contained 17 meters of fabric! That's a lot of seams people!

This is the pattern for these fabrics. My kit is not so floral, but a lot more asian fabrics.

I am really hoping to get this one finished really soon! I’m hoping Matt will quilt his awesome feathers all over it, and we’ve talked about it a few times but still no decision. I guess we’ll see when it’s all finished.

    • I think we all have those. A quilt that no longer appeals anymore. I have one that I’m planning to donate. The local charity quilters will take it and finish it up. Then it will get a new home too.
