2011 UFO Challenge - #6 finished

Over at Patchwork Times, Judy is running  a 2011 UFO Challenge. This month's project is #6 and mine is finished - DONE, DONE! It's a crumb quilt that I started probably two years ago. It needed quilting and binding. Done. Thank you, Judy, for motivating us to finish these languishing projects.

















Because all the blocks had a foundation piece I was afraid it would be too heavy if I quilted it with normal batting and back. So I used a flannel back and no batting. Well, it's pretty flimsy - not quilt-like in my opinion. But it will make a nice lap quilt or maybe a throw for a hospital bed, etc. Anyway, it will be a charity quilt of some sort.

Head over to Thirty Handmade Days to see other projects finished this week.

That will be a great gift for someone. Mine all go to http://americanheroquilts.com, but there are many deserving charities.

Wow! Your quilt looks great! I did a (somewhat) similar quilt for my #6. Ok, actually mine was a flannel crazy quilt, but still after seeing your beautiful quilt I want to stitch rip my little #6 and put in some sashing and... well, I think I am suffering from stitchers remorse and a little quilt envy. Anyhow, I love your quilt, it looks fabulous!
Cheers,
Dionne
