Just Imagine...

Play along with me here... just imagine that you are looking for something else and you run across this: fifteen pieced baskets containing appliqued strawberries, almost all set together... one strippy setting row with a strawberry vine completed and all the templates, prepped shapes, fabric, and notes from February 1996(!) folded together in one bag. Wouldn't that be a dream come true? (Or a nightmare, depending on how many UFO's one has and their perspective on such...) Can you even imagine such a thing? I know, that could never happen; but sometimes isn't it fun to just imagine?!

Life is Good!

At an uncharacteristic loss for words.

I can't believe you found that and I can't believe you havent' finished it before now, especially with your love of strawberries!!! I don't even remember you starting it or talking about it at all. Are you sure the quilt fairies didn't leave it for you one night??? Wonder what else is in that "magic" closet. I know it will be finished soon. It's wonderful!

I have no idea what that would be like. I know exactly where all my stuff is (she says while waiting for lightening to strike).

Nane said...

I bet we'll see it done soon, its great.

Vicki said...

That is quite a challenge to finish because of the change in fabrics over the last couple of years. I am confident that you will have it done and looking great soon. It is really cute too. What a little jewel to find!!

Lucky you, it will be fast finished I think!

I have NO TROUBLE imagining this because I KNOW I have some UFO's hiding that date back to the 1980's!

Pat said...

Can you give your quilt fairy my address? Wowzer -- I'm with Nancy, NP. At a loss for words.

But...what...who...how, and..?

Doesn't it look fresh and new to you now? Lovely!!!

Karen Newman Fridy said...

wow...that's better than finding a $20 in a coat pocket! Hannes is such a perfect model too...don't you know Lucy would have run off with some of it in her mouth! lol

I love love love those baskets...and the vine in the middle.

While I won't find anything that pretty hiding away I must admit that there are a few partially made quilts lurking in my sewing room. Well maybe more than a few. blessings, marlene
