A finished Quilt!



Can you believe that I finished my March UFO - finally?!?!
It has been my UFO goal since the beginning of January, and after 3 months, it's D O N E ! It is made from polka dot fabrics, and was a quiltalong project in 2012 from Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times. Three years to finish a quilt...that's not too bad eh?

It was a very windy day when I took the quilt outside for the photo shoot. I had to wait patiently until it hung relatively straight to get some photos. I like this one with the sun shining through.



This is the backing of the quilt - one big polka dot log cabin block. Can you see the vertical wavy line quilting? 


I am very pleased with how this quilt turned out and really like this photo of the quilt dancing on the clothesline. It really is happy quilt full of energy!

To see more UFO finishes in March, hop over to A Lovely Year of Finishes.

It's beautiful! But when I searched Judy's blog for the 2012 quiltalong, it doesn't look like this one. I was looking for the pattern (though I'm sure it's easy enough). Anyway, it's DONE! YAY!

While I was enjoying that final photo I had the thought that the polka dots are square dancing. *LOL*
