Deborah: World's Oldest UFO

I mailed this to Debra a couple of weeks prior to the Houston show, and she handed it off to me there. I have actually got the binding on it and it is ready to hang somewhere!

These blocks were from an exchange back in 1997. Nearly made it to 20 years. :-)

Thanks again, Debra, for helping me bust those UFOs.

What is sad is that it may have taken me all of an hour to quilt this. You probably spent more time mailing it to me. Probably 4 hours to finish and it's waited all this time! Now you have 2 new fall wallhangings--the Halloween one and this one. You are on a roll!

My birth sampler was older than that even, not that DD#2 likes the reminder. LOL

I bound it on the machine, so it took about 30 minutes to finish. You're right, it's a shame these things languish in a bin somewhere for 20 years.

I have a couple myself that I need to finish. When the original enthusiasm is over, it's hard to regain it for the final finish. Unfortunately.

and if you don't get a move on, your SBS quilt may be your next oldest UFO!

It's a beautiful quilt, how nice to have it finished in time for the fall (any fall).

Love the autumn colours. Great to have it finished and on display.

I think I can beat you on the oldest UFO... ;-)....and mine isn't anywhere near finished!
Your leaf quilt looks great, and there must be lots of satisfaction in having it all completed and on display.

My grandmother's flower garden quilt top had been sitting for about 20 years too, until Debra quilted it for me. Now I can sleep under it every night!

I love those maple leaves!

What fun to get it back in person! The maple leaf is a perennial favorite, so it's still "in" and looks just beautiful.
