Another UFO Finished!

As I've blogged about before (see here and here), my guild's president has issued a UFO challenge. What you see in these photos is the one that is due for tonight's meeting. It's a top that I pieced a while ago, but never got around to quilting it. But now it's done. And everything is from my stash, which means the backing is pieced.

Here's a closeup of the quilting...

This is a variation of one of my favorite patterns (generously provided for free by Mary Johnson of I basically took her Quick Strippie pattern and made the strips vertical instead of horizontal. The cake fabric pieces that I had were long and narrow, and the print on them is directional, so they wouldn't have worked in the horizontal layout. So I improvised...and I like how it looks.

Another UFO checked off the list...and more fabric used up without buying new!

very lovely. I like the whispyness of the quilting.

my daughter decorated cupcakes today, The most brilliant blue frosting with bought icing snowmen and then white snowflake sprinkles.
