I take pride in not having too many quilt UFO’s (unfinished objects) lying around. I am kind of compulsive about finishing my quilts. But there is one quilt that I have not been able to finish. It is called Crossett Christmas.
I finished the top in lightening speed, but the quilting moved at turtle speed. My vision of the quilt was for it to have dense quilting and lots of embellishments. (In Crossett our Christmas decorations were always somewhat over the top). It was finished, but in my head it was not finished. So I kept it hidden away in the closet.
Well, this year I am treating it like all of my other Christmas traditions. Old is to be preserved, but it is okay to mix in some new. From this point forward, I will bring this quilt out of storage at Christmas and add to it.
It is no longer a UFO. It is a Christmas tradition.
