got this finish in under the wire

here it is, quilted, bound, and labeled. whew...and it's not midnight yet too. This makes my second ufo finish in ten days. I actually have the 3rd ufo done up to the hand stitching of the binding-label is already on. You may not be able to see this quirk..I pulled stash binding-it looked enough so on it went-halfway through (this was donated binding by the way) the size changed. hmmmm-I just made it work, but, that accounts for a more narrow section in parts of it.

This quilt as well as the next scrappy one go to the charity I support. I practice my free motion quilting (using my bernie) on them and it's been a long time since I have done any free motion...the stippling looks pretty wobbly and I can't blame not wearing my glasses either! I was able to stay with it today long enough to get through both quilts. I didn't take a photo of the blue hearts flannel backing-as it is all the same one piece of fabric...same applies to second scrappy quilt too-different flannel-all one large piece.

Nice to bust more stash and finish a ufo...back to piecing the remaining scraps stitched together into another will be fun to see how many tops I end up with from using up all the scraps I started with from my large bin.

Wow, you are busting that stash. Good job! Can you post a picture of your butterfly quilt? I am thinking of going with the square in square for mine, but haven't done anything yet but put them all in a bin.

Awesome finish Cher!! I really do love that quilt..*VBS* And come on was just PURE fun wasn't it??? No rules to follow, if it's too big, lop it off! Too small, add another piece..right?? Pure play time I think, and it gets those odds and ends and orphans someplace to live..*VBS* Hope you do this again!!!
