    My Jan UFO finish

    I started embroidering the blocks for this quilt in 2008, and after putting it down and picking it up again several times, I finally finished quilting it in 2017. It is a wall hanging for my SIL, but since she is on the shorter side of tall she could use it for a lap quilt.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I like that. I do embroidery squares also. Just finished one, now looking for another set to start. I like the way you bordered this.

    Very nice. I've got 4 and 5 year old embroidery patterns I've yet to start.

    I forgot I was going to mention where the embroidery patterns came from. They are actually applique patterns for a quilt called "Baskets of Bloomers" in the book "Simple Blessings" by Kim Diehl.

    Nice wall hanging for your SIL. I like your designs and impressed that you saw embroidery opportunity in an applique pattern. You did the redwork stype and it looks great.

    I love embroidery incorporated into quilts, and I also find that appliqué patterns can also serve as embroidery patterns. Nice job!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    You did it! I just love it when a work gets finished and is ready to gift. Such an elevated feeling. Your sis is going to love using it.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words.

    I really enjoy embroidering, especially adding it to quilts. I have another embroidery project going for another wall hanging but I'm only half way through the blocks.

    Congrats on finishing your Ufo! It is lovely and your hand embroidery makes it extra special.
