This UFO (unfinished object) has been in time out, or as they say in the Netherlands, collecting trolls, for way too long. I started this lovely quilt in 2009. It was inspired by trips to the Owyhee desert and the storm cloud sunsets that were surprisingly intense. I used Kaffe Fassett shot cottons, and a pattern called Zen, first made by Blue Underground. I also included some dupioni silk, and some oxford cloth, which is another type of shot cotton; that is, the warp is one color and the weft is another. I used a lovely Kaffe print for the border. The back is a fun sea weed purple batik. I started quilting it in 2011. Then it got put away and has been languishing in a tote ever since. Time to get 'er done. So, this is my goal for March, to finish quilting and bind my Desert Storm.
