Back to Quilting

Today, I spent time working on quilty stuff. First off I am trying to catch up on my Farmer's Wife blocks for September! I got four more blocks done from the colorway "Breath of Avignon". I do have all the civil war collorway blocks done for September, see here.

Awhile back I posted about a Local Quilt shop monthly quilt project that was on my list of past year's projects I wanted to get done this year.  The yellow arrow shows the four other ones on my list I would like to get done this year too!  You can see the pasts posts that show these blocks here.

(Sorry for the poor pic, but taken late in the evening)

So, after having the blocks done and stored for three years, I ran into a few issues.  Let me preface this by saying that i have gone to some very wonderful local quilt shops, but the one that I
participated in for this project lacked in running the shop as a business.  They substituted the background fabric after block two, their close, but it is a distraction.  And the substitute they chose was short, and I ended up having to piece the sashing.  The finishing instructions, written by the shop owner, were incomplete, excluding the last three rows (sashing blocks, sashing). It is just frustrating to invest time, money, and materials on something that is mediocre at best. Arg!   Now my quandary is to decide on how to proceed?  So why I ponder, it has been put back on the UFO shelf.  Bummer...
