1 UFO down, countless to go...

Chances are if you are reading this blog, you know what a UFO is, but just in case you're not familiar with quilting terms, UFO stands for Un-Finished-Object!I started this wall hanging way back in January 2009. (Read about it here.) I can't believe it's been sitting in my quilt room that long just begging to be finished. Well today was the day. I couldn't stand to see it there laying limply on my shelves any longer!I did away with the idea of a border and just let the blocks speak for themselves with a simple binding....but lots and lots of quilting!It's happily up on the living room wall now, where it should have been a year ago. Sure feels good to have a UFO done:)My fingers are itching to do some applique now. I'm sure I can find an applique UFO around here somewhere....

Well it was definitely a good day to work on something fun. Don't you feel like we're in a holding pattern? We're holding out for the good weather! HAHAHA~

I just love the woggly blocks! I've wanted for ages to try something similar, well, actually, I have tried several somethings similars but I can't the the woggles to a) lie flat, or b) to join together. So I guess I'll just have to drool over yours...oops! better wipe the kepboard...

I really love it. I want to make a quilt like that. I keep saying it but I just don't get my other projects done to get around to making one like this. So it is fun to see yours.

Thanks for sharing.

Great finish, you call that an old UFO, lol. It looks great on the wall and sometimes quilts don't need borders.
