    UFO Sampler

    Yay! One sampler quilt now pieced. Started this at a class I took back in about 94. Originally I was thinking of making this into a summer quilt. I’m not sure that is what I will do. It is such a big quilt it would be a nice winter quilt. I didn’t realize I had the quilt upside down when I took the picture. My daughter pointed that out to me.

    Eh, 26 years isn't too bad. After all, you can't rush these things. Love the look of it, by the way, right side up or upside down. 😀

      Thank you. The first one I worked on, still have to quilt it, was an embroidered king size quilt. I bought the kit in 1976.

        What an accomplishment! It's lovely. I heard the fabric lasts for 100 yrs., so you're good.

        My sampler quilt from my 1st quilting class still is a UFO waiting to be sandwiched & quilted. It's been almost 11 yrs. I also have many other finished tops waiting.

          Joy, sounds like I'm in good company in having a number of projects waiting to be quilted. I actually finished my first sampler quilt about 7 years ago and sent to my cousin in Texas for a fund raiser for her lost her daughter and granddaughter who died in a terrible accident. Her grandson was injured very severely in that accident and is a paraplegic now but seems to be doing well. I loved the colors. This one was only a lap quilt.

            Love it!! I did a sampler in Germany when I was part of a guild, loved it! Yours is just beautiful. I have a sit down long arm, I'm ashamed to say I probably have 30 quilts ready to be quilted. I've always wanted a standup frame and never thought it would take this long to get it for the really big quilts! My bf has promised me we will make it happen when we have the space for it. Everyone knows quilters need space..lol

                  It's a beauty and a keeper.

                    Beautiful sampler. Yes, I think it would make a lovely winter quilt.

                      That is fantastic and you should be proud to have it finished. I had to have been lots of work.
                      I am delighted to see I am not the only one with unfinished tops. I need to get some backing to finish up some.

                          Love your sampler quilt.

                          Congrats on getting to the finish line. Think of how many things in life (and quilting) have changed since it was started.

                          Did you put the time line on the quilt label?

                            Rhonda, I have not put a timeline on it yet but that is the plan.
