    Another UFO done

    This is another UFO I completed this week. I have worked on this quilt about 6 years. I used it for a travel project. I would cut out the pieces at home and would work on the blocks at retreats or sew overs at friends houses. It measures 64" x 80". It is a sampler quilt called " From my heart to your hands" by Lori Smith.

    Almond, those are beautiful quilts. Ring the bell and blow the whistle twice for you.

    It's tricky doing round robins. You're never quite sure how the quilt will turn out. That's the surprise of it, I guess.
    I have to say that this is one turned out fantastic.

    I love the sampler. Green and blue together have always appealed to me and you did a great job with this one.

    Congrats on both finishes.

    Almond, They are awesome. I too love the blue and green colors together. Your round robin quilt came out awesome. Your group really let your center block shine. Aw, the lovely bells ringing for you are making sweet music.

    finally finished my oldest UFO---

    I am so happy i finally finished this quilt---it was the oldest of my 'current' UFO's---started out as a BOM 10 years ago- i made all of the blocks- then (messed up) cut fabrics to start putting it together---and a month later received a finishing kit i was not expecting- i felt i had really messed everything up & set it aside- by then i had plenty of other projects going on-
    over the years i have almost sent the blocks away a couple times- then decided to keep them- just in case i ever got around to finishing it up---i would get it out & look at it- admire the fabrics & the blocks---which i did not do too good at showing well in the pictures-sorry- good thing i'm a better quilter than photographer-
    anyway- another (reason-excuse) was i didn't know what i would do with it when it was done----florals really don't (work) in our world---
    finally decided it would be perfect for a favorite Aunt- and finished it up! yea! i am going to give it to her for mother's day-
    she is going to be soooo surprised!

    anyhow- yea- another UFO out of my sewing room!!!
    now my oldest one is about 8 or 9 years old---and i guess one of these day's i'm going to have to sit down & start working on it again- ...
    i really screwed up with the pics----there are 12 blocks- not 9---but you get the *jest* of it & i showed the back/quilting but i don't know how well that will show up- sometimes pics turn out better on here than i expect-

    You may have screwed up with some things but this quilt looks fantastic.
    The colors are great and I like the zigzag red.
    Congrats on finishing it.

    Just looked at your quilt over in Pictures section.
    It is beautiful! I like the different size blocks.....it adds interest.
    I also like the Prairie Points border. It mimics the points in the blooms and adds cohesiveness (is that a word?) and extra punch to the quilt.
    You did a great job with this.

    ckcowl & inspectorcmm; Wow great finishes!
    ckcowl - Your colors are great. That maroon just pops & adds that wow factor!
    inspectorcmm - I love your sunflowers. Are those carpenter wheels forming the peddles?
    Ring the bells & sing the songs!

    I will finally finish assembling a couple of tops, just have zinger and borders on two of them, will hopefully get quilted this weekend even though it is Easter and I get the priviledge of cooking. Family just might not let me get any pans this holiday so i do not cut my finger off like last holiday meal. They are tired of me being in the er room on the holiday. I should be good though. Will show pics on Monday if get done.

    Didn't get any of my UFO's done this, life got a hold of me and didn't let go. So will try to catch up this month.

    That is a gorgeous pooh quilt. I like your FMQ, you did a nice job. It is fun to just doodle instead of always having to stay to a certain plan. I like it.

    I cut it with the food slicing blade that was hiding in the pans. In fact, daughter called from college and asked her dad if I was cooking, and he said he has moved all the sharp objects out of my way. Oh, just got to love them right?

    Love the Pooh finish! If momma hadn't raised me right and it wasn't going to charity...I'd beg for it!
