    10 Year old UFO Finished, finally

    I started this little wall hanging quilt over 10 years ago. I got the top all done and had no idea how to quilt it, so it sat, and sat, and sat. Finally just quilted it last week.
    It is an old Valorie Wells pattern, a "stitch and flip" Don't remember the name.
    I FMQ a rose in the flower part and meandered leaves in the green sections.

    At our church we hang quilts for Mother's day. We can only hang a quilt once. This gives our quilting group an incentive to get the quilts done in time to be able to hang them.

    This is on the wall at church and was hung incorrectly. I turned the picture so it would be going the right direction.Name:  039.JPG

    It is so pretty.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Love your abstract flowers. Valorie Wells has great ideas in all her books which by themselves are lovely to look at even if you don't quilt. I am glad for you to have finished it. It is terrific.
