UFO no more

I took my March UFO, and contemplated the various sashing options overnight.  Morning brought clarity and a decision.  Then, all I had to do was get through a full day of work, before I could get back into my sewing room to put the final touches on the project.



I chose the blue/orange batik, and added corner stones in the orange.  The corners of the quilt are an extra block that I made, which turned out to be 1/4" too small.  Using the pieces there meant that the border strips were 39" long - just perfect for one width of fabric.

I love the end result.  Thanks to Judy's UFO Challenge, another poor, ignored project came out of the closet, and turned into a quilt.  I have a backing fabric in mind, so there's even a chance this will be quilted before the end of the month.  But, I'm not getting my hopes up.  First on the list - quilt the indigo quilt, and make my March Colour Challenge quilt.
