Raspberry Cocoa has been on my UFO list for 3 years and I can finally check it off. I love the pink and brown combo in this quilt. But the reason it was a UFO for so long is because I was hand quilting it. And because I would set it aside for months at a time with no progress.
I thought I had chosen a simple design, but it really got lost on this quilt. My hand quilting choices need to be simpler when used on a busily pieced quilt. So I ended up simplifying the border quilting - with loops in the corners only, and connected with a simple wavy line down each side.
Raspberry Cocoa is a Kim Diehl Simple Whatnots design from a few years ago. And ironically it was one of my #11 items from the APQ UFO Challenge. Number 11 was announced this morning as the June UFO number. And I had just finished quilting it this morning. The other 2 items list under #11 on my list are: Pick a Pig and Urban Cabin quilt. I'm currently working on a PIG (6th grade) so that is good timing. And the pillow top I showed isn't even on the list. Guess my plan will be to continue with the 6th grade blocks, and finish quilting that pillow top so I can put it together this next week.
