    UFO finally completed!

    I started this scrap quilt when I belonged to a quilt guild. It became a UFO quickly. When I did decide to retackle it, I found out the black fabric I had purchased at Joann's had disintegrated. I had to remove all the black "foot balls" and restart with good fabric from LQS. I got a Bailey's Pro 17 last fall to replace my Juki and was able to quilt the entire quilt without turning. Horray! I think this is the 5th quilt I have done on my Grace Pro frame. Still have alot to learn and big room for improvement. I like my quilt, but it is too bright for my king sized bed.

    Great scrappy quilt. With black footballs all the other colors go well together. Sorry about the problem with the original black material. I really admire you for replacing the black. I think I would have given up at that point.

    I love this quilt. Are the scrappies pieced, or appliqued on top? I've seen patterns for both.

    Don't know what a Bailey is but the elongated 9 patch is wonderful. I am so sorry to hear the black fabric pooped out on you after all of your hard work. But replacing all of that must have been ....I shudder to think. You deserve hugs and kisses of congratulations for redoing the quilt and the wonderful quilting. Your obviously very good. Thank you.

    WoW! Very beautiful....I love the black....when I first seen this i had a flashback.....I have an old 60+ yr old quilt just like this (only my black pieces are white) that DH's mother or grandmother made. I was guessing the pattern is a 9 patch.
    Great job!

    Very nice - I don't know if I would have had the patience to tear all that out and redo. It turned out great!
