    This is a UFO I ran across early March that was started clear back in 2002 or 2003. After looking over what I had done back then, I was so amazed at how far I truly have come in quilting. :shock: I scrapped the blocks that had been made as they were not even close to what they were s'posed to be! It is the Attic Windows pattern from quilterscache, and I think they were meant to be 12 1/2" unfinished after 4 windows were put together. I started measuring and they were all anything but that! Some were as small as 9 1/2" so I reckon I lost quite a bit somehow. LoL! I measured the seams and .. wait for it... yep, that's what the problem was. My seams were atrocious, to say the least! :oops:
    So, I figure "I'll just wing it and see how it comes out." I've been working on it off and on for a month now and just finished the binding a bit ago. I must say, I really like what turned out of this mess and just need a name for it so I can get her labeled and out of the UFO pile. I have no idea where it's going after that but atleast it is done, done , DONE!!

    The mess I started with that ended up scrapped

    TY. It is red, cream/beige(?), and blue. Maybe a close-up would show it better. The border is a solid navy blue and for some reason just made the whole thing, imho. I tried it without any border and it just all ran together, looked awful. The backing is the same navy also.

    not bad for 9 yr old walmart fabs.

    PJ,

    What a beautiful quilt! As for names for the quilt, how about "Finally Done!" Or maybe "Silk Purse Out of a . . . "

    Yes, it did turn out nice! Good work! Doesn't it feel good to work on clearing out the UFO stack?
