A Quilt Finish for Me

I don't get to quilt for me very often so I decided I was taking this nice, long weekend to get some of my quilting done. This is the quilt I found in a box on a shelf a few months ago that was about 3/4 finished with some pieces missing and some pieces partially done and the pattern not kept with the quilt and I'm guessing about 7 years old

The Border

And the Back

I finished piecing it a few weeks ago and now it's quilted. The binding is cut and ready to apply. I thought long and hard how to quilt this thing and finally just gave up on custom and used one of my favorite pantographs, Virginia Flower.


  1. the panto looks to be the perfect choice! Love it.

  2. Oh how great is that, that you got to finish one of your long time UFO's! Good for you!

  3. It's beautiful Vicki...maybe I'll find one like that on my shelf someday....not!

    Great to have it finished!

    Best Wishes
