Oldest UFO done!

Yep, this was started as an online Row by Row swap in 1999! We all chose a block to do and make enough for a row. We then made our own row, passed the row and fabric on to the next person. Well, the person ahead of me was doing awesome blocks! So much so, that by the time she got close to the end, she dropped out! I was bummed. I asked her if I could send her fabric and if she would do my row when she felt back up to it. She agreed.


Well, at a quilt retreat a few weeks ago, a vote was taken and all agreed that 15 years was long enough to wait for her row! LOL. So I took the rows I had and finished the quilt. This tulip fabric was my inspiration for my quilt. I thought I saved enough for borders, but it must be in a very,very safe place! So it went on the back along with the rest of the fabrics.






I finished quilting it and got the binding on it. It's now ready to hug some little girl!

The back....





Back to the UFO pile. It just doesn't seem to end! LOL

It's turned out beautifully. It must feel good to get this finished.

The top looks like you planned it that way all along! You are working to scratch things off the list and I'm buying fabric for the next new project. My poor UFOs....
