    My first UFO finally done!

    This is a picture of the first quilt I made many years ago. I participated in a mystery quilt class at a then LQS. I machine pieced the top, hand quilted all except the border area and then let it set. The borders are wavy, it is not square, the sashing is wonky. LOL Pulled it out the other day and decided it had sat around long enough. I machine meandered the borders (just to get it done), added the binding and called it FINISHED! Good enough for me to curl up with in the evenings anyway.

    Great job on finishing it! It looks like it's ready for lots of snuggling under. That's an interesting setting with the sashings set like that.

    Good job finishing it. Even with the wonky it'll still keep you warm

    I love butterflies. I think it's a great quilt. Nice to be finished and ready to cuddle, I'll bet.

    Congratulations on finishing. Sometimes it hard to pick up a UFO and start in again. You did a very nice job.
