    oldest ufo done

    Finally finished this ufo, made this for my first dgd. Will mail it to her for her birthday on
    Feb 10. She will be 22 !! started this when she was first born, (sigh) got in over my head with some of the top sewing, like the grid behind the bears. Thought it would make the bears pop out. I did not like it after I finished the first two, so it sat until I became a member of this board and learned a few things. Sew.... now it is done and I really like it, and the bears do pop out!! It is 37 x 49 and it does lay flat. Thanks for looking Name:  baby quilt 002.JPG

    What a darling quilt. Even though it is somewhat late, I'm sure she will love getting it from you. The pattern is adorable. Congratulations on finishing it up. Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    This is really cute. If I make one, I think I would use buttons for eyes. I have earmarked this. I love it and thanks for showing.

    I wanted to use buttons for eyes but did not want them on a baby quilt
    Thanks for the kind words

    Cute! She can give it to your first great-grandchild. Just last week-end I cleaned out the attic and found a gingham counted cross stitch alphabet top that I started in 1982!! I only got to "I" when I lost the pattern. If I could ever find it I would finish it up. I even kept the backing fabric for it.

    This quilt is so cute! I hope it doesn't take me that long to finish a UFO, lol! Must feel great to have it done and not haunting you anymore.
