    I finally figured out a plan to finish this group of 20 year old pieced blocks. At first I thought the pink batik was too bright but I already had some so went ahead. Then it needed a border so I went thru my stash and found the green with little dots of pink and burgundy and other colors in the pieced blocks.

    Finally finished with a 20 year old project and it feels so liberating. I am working my way thru old UFOs.

    Very nice, glad you finished it. I have some that you reminded me I should finish, about 50 years old that I got at a estate sale.

    So beautiful. These beauties need to come out of hiding and take center stage. Good job! Be sure to show us when they are all quilted:)

    They turned out lovely! I was just looking at some blocks that my aunt gave me, but they don't all match, so I am not sure what I am going to do. Will have to get some fabrics to audition, I guess.

    I love your quilt! It is really beautiful.

    I just finished a quilt that I started before my daughter was born (She is 21.) It felt like I would never finish. I have 2 more to go.
