{Dusting Off the UFOs} North Pacific

If my blog posts are accurate, I haven't done any actual work on this project since sometime in 2011. I started it at about the same time I was making Leif's Snails and got a handful of blocks done before getting distracted by other things.

Pattern: North Pacific by Janine Holzman (Quilter's Newsletter September 2006)

It's not as grim as it sounds. Looking back through the posts that mention this project, I came across a lot of other UFOs and WIPs. Most of those have been finished for years.

These days, I've got a lot more dark and light prints to incorporate into the quilt. And my skills are better. So maybe it'll turn out better than it would have if I'd finished it ten years ago.

I don't think I've seen this pattern before. I absolutely adore those whales in the border. I hope we see more updates of this one soon. Thank you for sharing your pictures. --Andrea

What a great pattern to use up those scraps. Love the whales and sail boats.

That is a neat pattern and now that you've waited a bit longer, your fabric choices will be a lot more varied, which will only enhance the final look of the quilt. It is really a great scrap buster. Just my kind of quilt.

Everything gets finished in its proper time, that's what I say. This is a great pattern, so I am looking forward to more progress on it.

Great pattern for using up those scraps. I love how the oldish blocks are still so pretty & popular!
