I have begun working in earnest on my January UFO. I was just planning on making one quilt but this project has doubled. This is a quilt that started as a shop hop for Alaska in 2010. I love batiks so when I saw the design I was hooked.
I started collecting all the blocks. There were 13 quilt shops participating around the state. Each shop's package contained all the fabric needed to make an applique block plus one of the setting blocks and four strips for the border. Then I saw the finishing kit, Northern Threads, a quilt shop in Fairbanks put together.
I loved this even more! So I bought the finishing kit which had fabric for everything but the applique pieces. The applique blocks are on larger blocks for this setting and a slightly different color. So I couldn't just use the blocks I had started to make from the original kits. Now I am forced to make two quilts. It will be fun to see which one I prefer when it is all done.
