UFO Challenge - January

Another January commitment is done and out the door! 

I'm participating in Judy's 2011 UFO Challenge, and our first assignment was #6 on our UFO lists.  My #6 was a set of pink B-a-D blocks ... not one of my favorite block sets, but all those blocks do need to be used, don't they?  And this project finished up the last of that very vivid pink stripe -- what was I thinking when I bought it?! -- I'm glad it's GONE!!! 

This quilt finished up at 50" x 70" and has been donated to Doves, our local domestic violence shelter, where it will comfort and cheer someone.  I hope next month's challenge number will be for a block set I like :)

You did a great job with a fabric color you didn't love.

I think this is a perfectly lovely quilt. Bless you for sending it out in the world to make someone else happy. I am sure that the lady who gets it will feel comfort that some other woman feels for her plight.

Oh, I am not a pink girl but this is just fresh and pretty and definitely brings thoughts of a pretty garden blooming! Great work on your #6. I hope Judy chooses another easy one for February's number!
