The oldest UFO ever

In quilt-speak, a UFO is an UnFinished Object.  I’d distinguish a UFO from a WIP (work in progress) in that there is progress being made on the one, not the other.

I’m pretty sure that this is my oldest UFO — template cut, hand pieced tessellation T blocks dating to the early 1990s.  In those days, I had no money and not much fabric to choose from, but lots of time on my hands.  My piecing overall is pretty good — very precise and careful, and the pieces fit together nicely. But I’ve really lost the love for the fabric choices.

It seems a shame to toss the project given how much time went into the piecing, so I’m hatching a plan for how to finish that UFO in a way that is in keeping with my current tastes and interests.  Updates will be forthcoming.  I have some long, tedious seams to hand stitch.
