January UFO


My January UFO quilt is complete - with 2.5 hours to spare :)  My sore finger made this a bit of a challenge, but I was determined to have this UFO off the list on time this month.

I designed this quilt in the fall, with the goal of using up the pink and flower fabrics that I had in my stash.  The goal was almost successful, between this quilt and an earlier one - which I finished but apparently never photographed.  I have a few blocks left over, so I'll try to put them together into a final quiltie.

The backing of this quilt was a sale fabric at one of the inventory sales before Christmas.  The sales lady at the quilt shop thanked me for taking the rest of the bolt on this one,  She wanted it OUT of the store :)  I thought I'd have plenty, and some left over, but it turned out to be exactly the size I needed, with nothing to spare.  So, not only out of the store, but out of my stash too,
