    UFO - done at last!

    I bought this as a kit, three yards of fabric, and you got to pick one of about 20 patterns with it. I was fairly new to quilting, pieced it (not as well as I could do now!) and it sat on the shelf for several years. Pulled it out recently and played around to finish it. Not perfect quilting by a long shot, but it's done.
    I plan to gift it to a really nice lady who has made my daughter feel really welcome in their family. She loves purple and gardening. She doesn't sew so she won't see any flaws!

    I love the colors together.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
