That is what happened with this little bundle.
It just lost it's glow after a pattern failed to "fit" it.
I sort of forgot about it...
Until this quilt.
Molly, a member of my guild, completed this quilt during the annual quilt retreat in January. I posted a picture of her with her top here. The pattern is Lincoln from Another Bite of Schnibble by Carrie Nelson.
I was so impressed with how the fabrics played together that I recalled my little bundle. I knew I had to find the right pattern for it. I decided on using another pattern from the same book Molly pulled hers.
The big version of Decoy by Carrie Nelson
I started my version after completing the Bibelot top at the retreat.
By the time I left I had all of the blocks completed.
When I got home I started adding the sashing...
then the first border...
Before I knew it, it was done!!
Soooo easy to make.
Sooo typical of Carrie's patterns.
Great directions make a difficult looking piece, easy to put together.
I also got this one back from the quilter's this week. Just a binding away from finished. I'll post a picture of the back when I get the binding in place.
