Twelve Year Old UFO Completed
Twelve years ago I made the blocks for this quilt, the pattern came from a 2004 Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. The name of the pattern was "Winter Garden" by Nancy Rink. It was supposed to have multiple pieced borders but I decided on a single plain border. The pieces sat there until three years ago, then I assembled them into a top. When my sister, Linda H came to visit, we looked at the top and discovered I had made a mistake when I sewed the sashing between the blocks. Linda used a seam ripper and picked out the mistakes for me. The unassembled top sat there for another two years until I got around to correcting the mistake. I layered and pin basted it, then got most of the quilting done, the project sat for several months. Last week I got the thing out and finished the rest of the quilting, the binding was attached yesterday. Like I've said before, I think I must be the slowest quilter in the world. :) I'm going to donate this one to the guild for the comfort quilt stockpile.
