    UFO finished!

    Made the maple leaf blocks in 2009? 2010? Anyway ... several "decades" ago! Had 12 blocks made ... and didn't quite know how I wanted to put them together. I didn't have anymore of the fabrics to make more block, but did have the brown fabric in my stash specifically for these blocks. So this is what I ended up with ... a bed runner. I used 10 of the blocks and have 2 left over. Probably will make pillows from the leftovers. I quilted it with maple leaves. Will use it in the fall. Gosh ... can you believe it? I actually have something ready for the fall! I'm just so glad to have finished a UFO!!!! Really trying to get my UFO pile down.

    I love your layout. It's a clever way to place those leaves for dramatic affect.

    Fantastic! I love Earth tones. The quilting is great too.

    love the colors, and great quilting pattern too
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Yes, I think the runner is really pretty and the colors, and the quilting. You have done well.

    Just right for keeping feet warm! The bold design looks fab in fall colors and has a very rhythmic effect. Excellent work!

    A great idea rather than having blocks sitting around.

    Really nice! Pillows made out of the leftover blocks is a great idea!

    I think there should be a parade in your honor for finishing your ufo!

    Enjoy keeping warm this fall.

    Wonderful finish...love the quilted leaves. I'm sure you're relieved to have it out of the UFO pile. : )
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    WOW! that is a beauty. I love your fabric choices and your layout. It's nice to see something different than the usual falling leaves.
