    My first UFO for 2012

    OK first I want to say a lot of you inspired me to make an honest effort to get some UFOs finished. I knew better than to make it a New Year's resolution so I just did a little silent resolution to myself. I completed the 12 surrounding blocks in December of 2009 or 10. They are all 12" sampler blocks with a 27" set-on-point center block (the center block is called Enchanted Earth) . All blocks have a focus fabric that is the same as the border. All fabrics are batiks (even the black is a batik). The blocks are divided with 3" sashing strips and 3" setting squares. The border is 6" finished for a total 75" square finished quilt.
    Now this is where I need you input what to name it!

    Thanks for looking!
