Finished Another UFO!


Last night I finished my 4th UFO of 2008. The kite blocks are from a swap I was in somewhere around 10 years ago. On Tuesday I was off work and pulled out the blocks, decided on sashing fabrics and whipped up the top. Then I found a piece of flannel in the stash for the backing and loaded it onto the HQ16. I quilted it with a loopy meander using yellow Signature cotton. I finished the binding last night while watching CSI: NY. There is a label attached and I will write the baby's name as soon as I confirm the spelling.

This quilt will be going to New Hampshire for my new grand-nephew born last Friday :)
Finishing this quilt busted 3 yards of fabric for the sashing, backing and binding. I also found a piee of batting leftover from another quilt that was the perfect size :) Kinda nice to finish a quilt and not have to buy anything to do it :)
