    This is probably one of my oldest UFO's. I pieced most of it 10 years ago. It's got a lot of problems, but it's finally done. One major fault is that I used a couple of different black fabrics as I had thought black was black. Not true, of course. You live and learn. So, if you look closely the blacks aren't the same throughout. Also, some of the points aren't the best. But I was a newer quilter when I started it. I finally got the black batting I've been forgetting to buy over the years. I FMQ all over it in black thread on the top and bottom. The back fabric is a metallic blue polka dot. It's going in the wash today to get "shrunk".

    I looks great to me. I need someone to teach me how to do the freehand quilting. The back of mine doesn't look right so I haven't attempted to do it on a realy quilt yet.

    Thanks, it does feel good to have it done. I had forgotten how long FMQ took, as it's been a while... For this large, lap size quilt I'd say it was a good 4 hours of quilting and LOTS of thread. I think I went through a whole large size Mettler spool of thread for just the FMQ. That doesn't count the piecing.

    This has always been one of my favorite patterns (it's on my someday list) and I like your version very much. You know what, if your blacks don't match they are "unique" and all cat owners will tell you each cat is unique, so you have a perfect blend. Congratulations on finishing - it was worth the wait.
