    UFO One Block Wonder

    Got another UFO done after 3 years in holding. Got it quilted just before my Long arm went on the blink last week. Got the binding sewed on and worked on the binding today since I was nailed to the chair from knee surgery.

    It seems I get the tops pieced but I have a hard time getting the quilting done and the binding. So the UFO challenge has been great for me.

    Great mix of patterns. Can you post the original fabric so we can see what you started with?

    Lovely!
    Bet you now wish you hadn't waited so long to finish this up.
    I particularly like how you used the coordinating stripe in the border and binding. Nice touch!

    That's a great thing for passing the time when you are stuck sitting down. It's looks lovely. I've got three tops I've been meaning to quilt for years but have put off because they are kings so next guild meeting, I'm taking one to talk to our resident longarmer. Since I have no emotional connection to any of these, I just want them finished so I can finally put them to use and same my creative energies for the ones that I feel a real connection to.

    I got out to the shop today, but I don't have any of the main fabric left. I am hoping to go to LQS sometime soon and if she still has it. I will get a picture of it.

    Beautiful work. Love those colors.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Thanks for looking at my quilt and I am sorry but I don't have any fabric left. I have even checked the LQS and she is out. Sorry

    What a beautiful OBW!!! I, too, would like to see the original fabric (if you still have a piece... LOL! I always use mine all up & then have none to show). I'm sorry to hear about your owwie knee. I can identify... they thought about replacing mine but there wasn't enough bone left to attach to so I just get to limp... LOL! Oh well.. at least it still can push the pedal on my Featherweight! That's all that matters, right?
