# 17 UFO Project - begun 2014
I sewed strips for this project as leader / enders while working on Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt Project, 2014.
This pattern is Facet, from Kaffe Fassett's book Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts. After much discussion with quilt friends at the annual quilt weekend, I have reduced the size of the rectangles from 8 5/8" x 17 5/16" to 8.5" x 17.25" for the simple reason that the ruler I had with me did not have markings for 16th's and the lighting was not conducive to the fine detail needed for precise measurements. So, that being said, I sewed a couple of rectangles and did not see any change in the overall design or appeal of the smaller rectangle.
Another change from the pattern will be the size and shape of the final quilt. The size in the book shows the quilt as square with a border of 4" finishing at 72" x 72".
I will be working on more strips to add either 1 or 2 more rows of diamonds. I'm not sure if I will add a border at this point but I would like the quilt to be rectangular and not square.
Linking up with WiP Wednesday, at freshly pieced. . .
