I finished piecing the allover design using the Benartex fabrics that I posted about yesterday. This evening after supper I started poking around in my stash closet to find another UFO to complete.
I pulled out a half-completed strip set Ohio Star using a lovely autumn leaf fabric for the setting triangles. As I unpacked the patches and completed blocks from the bag, I tried to remember exactly how this one went together. I was drawing a blank about the border; there were a bunch of triangles but no clue how they were supposed to be assembled.
I remembered that the pattern was taken from a book I had, and that the book showed the quilt with a navy and tan floral as the setting triangles. So I pulled up a chair and started thumbing through books.
After I had gone through five or six I started to get worried. What if I had sold the book last spring? Or donated it to the library? I knew I didn't have any more of the fabric, so if I couldn't find the pattern, how was I to put the border together?
At last, I opened a Marsha McCloskey book and there it was. Whew! That was close! I never thought about the UFO's in my closet when I thinned out the bookshelf.
