Friday Finish

I finally have a Friday Finish to report. This quilt was on my Design Wall Monday post with a brief story about why it was a UFO and possible ideas on how it was to be finished. While cutting the fabric for the border, I looked at the selvedge and saw that this fabric was made in 2002, and I'm pretty sure that I bought it when it was new Do you know what that means? Yep, this UFO is 9 years old! Holy cow!

Considering the age of this project, I decided that "done and not exactly as planned" is better than "not done, waiting for the impossible to happen" (namely, magical appearance of more of the fabric so I could enlarge this), so I added the borders and am ready to quilt it. After it's quilted, I'm going to add a small lime green piping at the same time that I add the purple binding.

It feels good to have done this! While finishing this, I was also able to finish the 168 small scrappy rail fence blocks that I need for my Cheese and Crackers quilt.

I didn't do anything with the clothline yet, but I'll get there so stay tuned.

Did you finish anything this week? Why not share it with other quilters and maybe you'll inspire them to finish something too.

9 yrs - no you aren't going to find the fabric and good for you in completing it in a lovely fashion.

The quilt top is looking great! I had a quilt that took 10yrs for me to finish...worth the weight. No finishes for me this weekend, I started 2 things instead!
