A UFO Finish - Jesse Will Love This

Judy L called the number and this one came up.

Finished up a UFO just now.  It was one I started years ago.  I took a class at the Quilt Corner with Judy Tate and she had designed a Row Quilt out of beautiful bright tone on tone fabrics.  I had this in my stash and decided to use steel blue and beige rose prints.  I had the top finished for about a year and it was sandwiched and just sitting there.

When I got into quilting it I realized that a corner of the backing was chunked out for some reason.  So I pulled a piece of green that was a similar tone with roses and made a Y seam adding that to fill in the gap.

The added bonus is the beautiful day we had here.  60's temps made it a perfect spring day.  So I sat in the back yard, yelling at DiNozzo for chewing up all the sticks he could find and swallowing them for the 2 1/2 hours that I worked.  And I had to keep flicking the caterpillars off me and the quilt as well.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of the quilt and the beautiful day and the back yard we work so hard in every week!

glen:  see the new goldfish on the fence Frank bought me today?  He is looking at the quilt and going:  Blub! What a blub blub quilt!


  1. What a gorgeous quilt and looks like you had a gorgeous day as well. Puppy heaven for Di Nozzo with all those sticks too I bet! Happy stitching!

  2. The goldfish is cute! Great finish! I haven't finished last month's UFO#1. It took all month to decided on the center and then find more black to match when I ran out. UFO#1 is my grandson's graduation quilt so it has to be finished by end of May.

  3. Your quilt is gorgeous. I love love it. And your back yard looks relaxing.

  4. Love the backyard - every backyard needs a goldfish. Frank has a very artistic eye for detail. The quilt is pretty - why was it a UFO? Sticks, huh, I wish you would take better care of my dog.
