More Wild Air, Again . . .

Remember this project, Wild Air by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co?



I started this project by attending a class at the Corn Wagon Quilt Shop back in May of 2011.  (click here for class detail)

I didn't finish my Wild Air in class, (does anyone ever finish their project in class???) and in June, 2011 blogged about my fabric drama and how I was going to save this project for the fall.  (click here for that  post, or not, you may have enough of me and my fabric drama)  Well at the time I thought I was talking about the fall of 2011, and here it is, the tail end of fall 2012, but I'm going to finish this quilt, before the first day of winter, December 21, this year!  And I think it's going to be easy, even though this is a busy time of year.

This is my only UFO, I usually start a quilt and finish it during one space of time, or, I start it, hate it, and move on, never thinking about it again.  But I sure am appreciating the benefits of having UFOs with this project.

Here's my project box, it's like a little quilt gift.



I've already gone through the fabric drama phase of fabric selection plus everything is cut out!


And I even have some blocks made, this quilt practically made itself while it was sitting in that project box.



I looked on-line to see if anyone else had made a Wild Air but didn't find a single finish in blogland, which surprises me, I love the look of this quilt.  I wonder if all those geese  scared quilters away.  I'm looking forward to making those geese using my Fit to be Geese ruler, plus that method of geese production makes geese in groups of 4, perfect for this project.  Maybe you have a Wild Air UFO too, want to join me for a great finish to 2012?

Another reason I'm wanting to finish this quilt, it will be Lifetime Quilt #98, making my Memories of Provence BOM #99, and a clean slate for starting #100!

  1. Thelma, I really like the way you call your project box a little quilt gift. I was getting so overwhelmed just looking at all my boxes, but you've inspired me to look at them in a much better way! Now I have wonderful quilt gifts to start after Christmas! Love your Wild Air!

  10. I can't imagine what it would be like to have only 1 UFO. I'm thinking quilt #100 should be something extra special.

  13. Wild air is on my quilting bucket list. I have the pattern and most of the fabrics...because I will be working from my stash, HOWEVER it will definitely not be done before Winter Solstice...too many other things happening around here! I am marvelling at the fabrics you chose and how different it make the pattern appear. Looking forward to seeing the end result..as always!
