Design Wall Monday, August UFO #31 and it's September!

I so can't believe I forgot to post to my blog yesterday, after being so good about posting every day in August except the power outage day.  I was so gung ho on machine quilting (I will show that quilt later in the week) that it slipped my mind.

My design wall has not changed from the last two weeks, but my design floor has changed.  I will be going to a retreat in mid September and was trying to decide on projects and I have had the Crown of Thorns pattern for 10 years.  I pulled all the batiks from my stash except for a couple light ones.  Gee, the pattern was in my colors, imagine that!  Now to get the pieces all precut before I go and have our county fair and going back to work for the school year in between!

My last UFO of the day for August is at the bottom, a row robin top.  It was from my guild several years ago and I didn't end up with enough rows so I made some checkerboards to fill in.   I will have to decide what I'm going to do for September.  I am actually getting low on showing UFO's after showing 31 of them!! Linking up to Design Wall Monday.

Definitely your colors! Do you think you were drawn to the pattern more for the color or design? I know I am drawn first by color!

You do have the perfect colors! How great to make your own kit up for the pattern from Stash! Pretty shades of color there. I think I remember you finishing that Row Robin Top at Pomeroy in 2013. I''m resting up from the Fair now that ours is over.

It's been so fun to see your UFOs all month. Great that you are blogging again.
I love your new project. The colors are perfect.
