My Friday quilt group is doing a challenge and is due in March. It is a green and muslin/calico challenge. I don't like the muslin part of it and am thinking about trying to paint, stencil, dye, or somehow change the look of the muslin. The piece only has to be 6" X 24" which actually sounds like a table runner to me. What else will I do with this when it's completed? I also had a thought about trying the portrait technique and doing the three of us (DH, DS and myself). The good thing about using the muslin is it's extremely cheap compared to better quilting fabric so if it doesn't turn out it can just go in the bin.
The next quilt to finish in my UFO basket is this maple leaf wall hanging. These blocks were won 12 years ago when I belonged to a guild group. Yes, 12 years ago. After resizing each block I added the sashing strips and will machine quilt it. There are no outer borders, I just don't think it needs anyting more. Today I will sandwich and ready it for my machine. My DH didn't like the yellow leaf. It's the unexpected element and gives it more interest, so it's staying as is. ;o)
