    My Fifteen Year UFO

    I thought I'd share/show off the quilt that got me back into this stuff in January. I started it in 1999 when I was home for surgery. It wasn't my first quilt, but it was my first complicated one. I finally finished the top about four or five years later. Then it went into the attic because I wasn't brave enough to try to quilt it. Finally, in January, I sent it to a professional. (Shannon Mower of Modern Tradition Quilts.) I added the binding myself (one of my favorite parts of quilting - I'm weird, I know). And finally, last night I pulled the guest room back together with a new dust ruffle, pillows and my precious "baby." How I love this quilt.

    It was from a book called Great American Quilts that I've had for close to 20 years. I suspect it's out of print now, but there are some wonderful quilts in it. If you run into a copy, snap it up!

      You're not weird at all, I enjoy doing the binding as well. I think because that means another quilt almost finished. Great sense of accomplishment.

              That's a beautiful quilt. I really like the colors. I love sewing the binding too. You must be so happy to take this one off of your UFO list.

                What a beautiful quilt. It gives me hope that the tops I have that haven't been quilted that they will be finished one day.

                  It was the first of the series. The other books have "Two" "Three" etc., added to the title. I'll look it up for sure tonight. The name of the design is 3D Nine Patch, and the designer was a woman named Keathley. Can't remember her first name.

                        Lovely! It is truly a beautiful quilt. How nice to have it out of the attic and onto a bed for you to enjoy!

                          That's really a beautiful quilt! I can tell it was difficult to make and I can't blame you for setting it aside for a while. It's gorgeous and looks wonderful in your guest room. Great Job!!
