Forest Friends - Complete

Finally complete!  2013 is going to be the year of me finishing up UFOs. See, I'm keeping my promise.

This was kind of languishing in my UFO bin. I had all the blocks pinned into the rows that I sewed together, then sandwiched it and quilted it in a green thread.  Sulky looks awesome when it's all quilted up.

Forest Friends was my very first swap quilt. I asked for wonky or improv (a la Gwen Marsden) blocks. Got back all but one, so I made a spinner block. Adds interest I think.

The binding is a grey blue which pulls out the blue in some of the tree fabric.

The year of the UFO...

No, not that kind of UFO silly.  Un Finished Object.  You know, quilty things. :) Ones that I make and then lose interest in because it's taken so long to get to the quilting or binding or .. oh shiny!!  My attention span gave out.

This is the year of the UFO. I'm getting them completed.


Stop laughing.

I'm serious!!

See - it's January 3, 2013 and I have my first UFO done. :)  It's an old one, and it's finally done. From this post - Week 1, 2012!! But still, it's quilted and bound. Feels good to get it off my UFO list.


Till next time - Happy Quilting and HAPPY NEW YEAR
