February UFO Complete!


It's complete!   I was only one day late, getting the binding done on "Flurry".  This was my #9 quilt on my UFO list,  which was the number drawn for February over on Judy Laquidera's blog.  You can check it out more on Judy's blog, by clicking here.

We were challenged to pick 12 Unfinished projects that we wanted to finish this year.... they were posted and numbered by myself.... but Judy draws a number every month, so we work on them in random order.   

I was part of a block exchange back in the fall of 2015 with 7 internet friends.  We each made 2 "gift" blocks for each of the participants.  I wanted my quilt a bit longer, so I added 4 more blocks.   

I laid out the completed blocks and planned my scrappy border while at our guild's retreat last fall.   It feels good to get another quilt off of my "NEEDS TO BE QUILTED" list.  

I chose to do a loose wavy vertical line type of free motion quilting on this, for an informal, modern look.  This is one I'm keeping to use on the back of the sofa for the Holidays.    It finished at 57 x 75".  

The number that Judy picked for March is #5... which is my "Roll Roll, Cotton Boll",  a mystery by Bonnie Hunter.  The top is pieced,  just needs to be Quilted...  (sounds like a familiar story).  


  1. Beautiful finish. I have that pattern in my "to do one day" pile. So cute and great for using scraps, which I love.

  2. Lovely quilt! Congratulations on the finish.

  3. Congrats on a very fun finish!

  4. Love your quilt! It'll be perfect on your couch next year.
