Sunday Finish

What a gorgeous day today! Spring has arrive in NW Indiana with sunshine and warm breezes. The grass is really turning green and the buds are coming out on our trees. It won't be long before tulips like these in this quilt will be blooming! I really love the colors in this quilt and I am happy on how it turned out.

I also think the backing is fabulous and the flowers are just as pretty on the back as the flowers on the front. :D

I also did some piecing on a very old UFO. My daughter picked out these bright fabrics at least 5 or 6 years ago and I have been lax on finishing this lap quilt. After hearing about others concentrating on getting old quilts finished, and feeling badly about the ones I had, I decided to get busy too. Most of the blocks were pieced so I just made a few more and then put them together with a small border. Tomorrow I will put on the large border, make a backing , and then put it with the other quilts in line to quilt.

I really feel charged up now and will pull out the rest of of my UFO's and really concentrate on getting them "all" done. Thanks to all of you who have inspired me!!

That Tulip Quilt is a very happy quilt. I love it. Like the twist in the sashing. Beautiful fabric.
Good going on UfO'S. That is my theme this year. It is difficult, want to start something new.
