I'm kind of embarrassed to post right after another one of WMUTeach's amazing finishes, but I'm happy to share this quilt I made to protect the back seat of our car when we have the dog in there. I've shared a picture of it installed (with elastic straps that go around the headrests). This 9P top was made in the early 2000s, back when I didn't really have any quilting fabric per se and just used whatever I had access to because I didn't know what I was doing! There are bits of silk, flannel, rayon (I think), polyester, upholstery samples, sheets, and a few pieces of actual quilting cotton in there. Unsurprisingly, it sat in a box or bag for 20 years or so until I had an epiphany and realized it would be perfect for this use. I shared a bit more in the Fabric Moratorium thread (where you can see "proper" pictures), but figured a 20-year old flimsy definitely qualifies as a UFO completion!

Every quilt has a purpose!! I bet your pooch doesn't even notice that the quilt was a beginner's attempt. And protecting the seat with your nine patches, well why not! Congrats on your 20 year UFO finish!.

I will take a peek at the Fabric Moratorium photos. See you there.

Thanks for the encouragement, WMU :-) The more I look at it, the happier I am with having created something useful and at least it's a conversation piece if not a masterpiece! :-)

(The quilt was all from stash and I finished it during this month's Virtual Quilting Weekend.)
This is really great. Thanks for posting! You are an inspiration! Hugs!

Such lovely quilt finishes. I’m sure the fur babies Ike the extra padding in the back seat. My fur babies like all of my quilts no matter where I had them (bed, couches, cars, etc).

FYI, I plan to ho tho site again next year.

UFO’s will be #1 goal for next year. There’s 2 I’d like to finish this year. They’re both partly quilted.
