Many years ago I did the shop hop, purchased a finishing kit from somebody, made all the blocks and quietly hid it away.
Yup, for some unknown reason I hid away a quilt top that was almost complete.
What was I thinking?
I have no idea what I was thinking but when it surfaced a couple of weeks ago, from a box of books to be discarded, I came across the pieces and decided to finish the year off with a completed UFO.
Yesterday I completed the quilt and here's what it looks like:
I like some of the blocks and others not so much...a danger with this kind of quilt making. I had lost the instructions for the finishing kit so I finished it up on a wing and a prayer. Some of the blocks did not exactly fit with the other blocks so I had to make some adjustments by adding additional borders and, in a couple of cases, I actually resewed the block to get it to the right size.
I like the size of about 68" x 88" as it is perfect for one human and two dachshunds cuddling on a lazy afternoon of mystery novel reading. And, as Paul had absconded with a couple of quilts earlier this season, I needed to replenish my stock of cuddle quilts.
Finishing off the year with a completed UFO is definitely a good thing.
Now on to working on my New Year's resolutions...or not!
