I have finished yet another UFO since the start of the year. This is my second oldest UFO so I’m glad to finally get it done. These blocks dates back to 2003. No lie!
I really love this quilt. Each block was made by a different person from a block swap I participated in. No one knew what blogging or social media was back then, so I’m not sure what happened to the other blocks we mailed out or if the other participants finished their quilts. I’m pretty sure I am the only one that sat it aside for more than a decade though. I mean, who would do such a thing? But like they say… ‘better late than never!’
We each signed the blocks and wrote a little saying about our wonderful country.
I free motion quilted it with a loop-d-loop (my favorite) with a few stars thrown in here and there.
This quilt will be donated to our local Quilts of Valor chapter. I hope it provides comfort and healing to a member of our armed forces that gave so much for our country.
I’m very happy with the progress I have been making with my UFO’s though I expect I won’t be able to keep up this pace much longer. Not only is it tax season, but our house is now under contract (Yippee!) so hopefully we’ll be moving in the next 2-3 months.
