At my Flying Geese Quilt Guild I joined a UFO Challenge. The challenge is to finish 5 quilts that were Unfinished prior to the challenge. This is my first completed quilt. I started it about 2 years ago. It was my month to big a block in my EZQ group. Each member made me a block and I put them together. This is actually a one block quilt. I chose mint chocolate for the theme. I love the fabric choices and the quilt came out great. I finally finished the quilting on my new Tin Lizzie. I have a feeling a lot more UFO's are going to be completed here in the new future, challenge or no.
For the backing fabric I used some fabric I got from Beyond the reef. Kind of a beachy toile.
Some of my friends Donna and Pat created some simple philanthropy kits and passed them out at the last EZQ meeting. Great idea. I whipped this rail fence up in no time. Its a pretty good sized lap quilt.
I'll be traveling next week to Sacramento. So I've got this weekend to sew, do laundry and pack.
I hope you all get a chance to sew this week.
