    As I was cleaning out my sewing room today, I found the first quilt I made. It was made using a pattern called Easy Breezy and Moda's Christmas Toile in blue. As you can see, it's not bound so back into the UFO drawer it goes!

    That's very nice for a first quilt. Why not just go ahead and bind it while you have it out? You could have it completed in a day.

    Don't put it away - it's too pretty and so close to being done.

    I can't bind right away because I can't find the fabric I planned to bind it with! It's in the sewing room somewhere! See my post under "Just Keepin it real"....
    I hope to find it soon though. I forgot how much I really like it!

    Please don't put that quilt away. It is just too beautiful to not be finished. Please post a pic when you get it done.

    It's so pretty! Please don't put it back in a drawer, you should finish it now. Wouldn't it feel good to get it done?

    Very pretty, it deserves to be finished, just find the fabric you were going to use.

    I took everyone's advice and you'll be glad to know that I have decided to go ahead and bind this since it's out of the closet. Once I trimmed off the backing, I had enough for the binding. I'll post pictures as soon as it's finished. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Thanks for the encouragement and kind words!

    It's a finish for July! I officially finished 3 quilts during the month of July which is somewhat of a record for me since I rarely sew in the summer months!

    I made this quilt in the winter of 2002 and it's been in the closet since it came back from the quilter!
