A 2009 BOM UFO

Back in 2009 I started making this BOM ( A Tiskit A Tasket ) that was on the Bunny Hill Designs blog.  I finished 7 months of it.

Then, I got very busy because I was retiring in December of 2009 and I had a lot of quilts to make that I wanted to give as gifts to friends at work, so I put this aside and it stayed put away for more than 10 years!!  Below are the 7 finished blocks.

I don't know what finally got into me, but I dug it out and this morning I picked out fabrics for all the appliqué and now they are all ironed on the fabric.  I still have to do some embroidery on most of them, plus stitch around all the appliqué.  I hope to find some time to get these finished and then put together.  It is such a cute project!

I may have to set it aside again for a little while so I can get my taxes ready to send to our tax man.  Ugh!!  But I promise I won't let it sit for 10 more years.


  1. I remember when you started on that all those years ago! It is cute and deserves to be finished. Take breaks from the tax prep and work a bit - you've got almost two months!

  2. Glad you thought about those cute blocks. I'll be watching for a finish! ---"Love"

  3. I love this quilt! I missed downloading some of the patterns, so it became a ufo for me.

  4. Oh these are wonderful basket blocks! Need to work on my taxes too - sigh

  5. Progress is good. This is a cute quilt and I can't wait to see yours finished. I completed mine a couple years ago and I love the little baskets. It is so much fun choosing tiny scraps of fabric to create the blocks and I love doing the blanket stitching around the shapes by hand. Enjoy!

  6. They are adorable blocks. It is good for them to see the light of day again.
    Ugh--I have to go start work on my Mom's taxes this week. :(
