UFO Finish 1

I have a UFO finish.....YEAH!!!!.  I finished the night before last but needed to wash it and take a picture, so here it is.  Why was this a UFO?  Well I can honestly say it was because I did not want to do the binding. This quilt has been sitting there for almost two years and binding was all that needed to be done...call me crazy for sure.

I don't know why I don't like binding my quilts but that is one thing I really detest doing. Ironically once I am done binding I always think....well that wasn't so bad...then I procrastinate on doing the next one. I have 4 more to bind that are on my UFO's list....maybe 2011 will be the year I get them all done.

I call this one Mint Chocolate Chip because for some reason that is what it reminded me of. I guess the light greens with the browns and pinks just scream ice cream to me.

Front 69 x 69

First time I ever pieced the backing. I almost like this as much as the front.

Sew today even for 15 minutes, and hey...choose binding .....you may just get another quilt completed.


  1. I love it! I am working on a rag quilt at the moment. I'll post pictures to share it with you. Thanks for sharing your amazing work. =)

  2. It's gorgeous! Finish is my word for the year. It's a good word. Good luck with the next binding. :)
    I'm having fun reading your blog. I love your stash report.

  4. I'm the same way! It ALWAYS takes so much longer to get around to it than it does to actually do it. Every now and then I MAKE myself have a 'finish-it day'... My reward~ other than the finished piece~ shop :-)
