    Cool Only UFO completed!

    I swore I would never have a UFO when I started quilting again, because I used to have so many abandoned garment projects. My sister gifted me some of these fabrics for my birthday a few years back, and I added the paisley and the light orange dotted fabric and found the perfect pattern, Urban Matters by Nancy Mahoney. I modified it a bit. I never had so many piecing issues, had to tear out a few seams. Then I puckered my border and had to redo it. I had issues with my thread breading, and when I got a big pucker in it, I tossed it aside. Three years later, I wanted to finish it. I picked out about 2 square feet of the quilting with a pin and finished it, and I'm glad I did.
