Cabin Windows UFO Complete!

A UFO complete!  Yay!  I bought this kit from Connecting Threads in 2013.
I came across it the other day when I was looking for a quilt panel I wanted to play with.
This kit was with my panels.  Totally in the wrong spot.  

I took it out to put it were it belongs and realized I had already cut all the pieces out.  So I decided to sew it together instead of put it back on the shelf.

I almost quilted this using black thread, but decided to go with a blue. I am glad I did, the blue pops on the black and gives the quilt a whole new feel.  I did an all over feather swirl and what ever I felt like drawing for the quilting.  It quilted up pretty quick.  For the binding again I went with blue.  It frames it up nicely.

I used up most of this weird zig zag print for the back.  I bought it super cheap years ago and a lot of it, thinking it would be perfect for backings and it has served me well.  I added a purple strip of fabric to make it wide enough.  I couldn't believe how well the purple matched the print.

Another UFO off the list,  a lot more to go.....




  1. Beautiful! You could make this with your leftover Island Batik scraps. Do you end up with many scraps after making your challenge quilts?

  2. That's really pretty! I agree, the blue thread looks great with it!
