    Since I had the camera out upstairs, I thought I'd post a pix of a UFO from 6-7 years ago. I made the center and have no earthly idea what was supposed to come next. I found this in the bottom of a box when I was looking for fabric.

    So, come on quilters--how would you finish this??

    What if you just quilted it, bound it, and sent it my way? :D It's lovely just as it is...

    Oh, I think that instead of sending it to those 2 ahead of me, you should just send it out (as is- I don't require binding) to me :lol: :lol:

    You know....we could start another kind of swap...a partial UFO swap. I could send you mine if you send me yours... :lol:

    How big is it? You could embellish the trees and make a great holiday throw pillow.

    I'd put a 1" black border around it and call it done.

    I'd put some flying geese units around it,
    Slap some bear paws somewhere here and there
    Maybe a couple other sections
    OR Not!!!
    Either way and what ever you do to it, it will look wonderful!

    I actually made this and it is hanging above my fireplace. I believe it was a thimbleberries pattern that I saw when I was watching Simply Quilts. Mine has a fairly wide border with a square in each corner.

    I'll post another picture here.

    I don't think there is a right or wrong way if it is your quilt.

    It's tall, not that wide though. Excellent idea!

    Mary,
    Great minds DO think alike! So how old is this piece?? I am always amazed when I find things I completely forgot I had. Could that be a symptom of something?? :D

    That is really neat--just makes me feel bad for never finishing it! :lol:
    I wish I was better at drawing--would love some lumbering bears/fish/etc--although the colors are pretty bright!

    Julie, you can always tone it down if you want. I just did some panels w/the tan of rit dye. Very easy to use and do and start out light if you do this. For wet things always appear darker when wet. There are many coloring books, etc online w/those shapes you are talking about to get a great example and design. Just some thoughts, Skeat
