    finished a 10 year old sampler quilt UFO

    started this quilt over 10 years ago --- all kinds of (excuses) later i finally finished it-
    i am going to give it to a favorite Aunt for mother's day- she's gonna love it!
    i didn't do too good with the picture taking- it is 12 blocks not just the 9 that show up- & the pic of the back doesn't do too good at showing quilting detail---but it's done & i'm happy.

    It is really pretty. My first quilt was a sampler, but not anywhere near that good.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    This is a lovely sampler! Many times they don't seem very cohesive to me, but this one is just beautiful.

    It must be gratifying to finish a 10 yr UFO. I'm in the same boat and need to pull out the next UFO to work on. Thanks for reminding me to get at it!
