June UFO Challenge

I'm trying to finish some "long loved projects" in 2011. I even joined the challenges at Judy's blog Patchwork Times and Nancy's blog Patchwork Penguin. Of course, I didn't finish the right "numbered" project for either list. BUT I did complete a UFO that was very aged. This quilt top, number 2, on my list  is DONE!!!!! The receipt from purchasing this kit was still in the plastic container. I began this project October 2, 2004. The pattern is Friendship Crossing by my friend, Pat Wys of Silver Thimble Quilt Company. The finished project looks complicated, but it's mainly nine patches and half square triangles. I am absolutely thrilled to have this UFO on the way to becoming a much loved quilt.

Stunning. Just the kind of quilt I love. Doesn't it feel so great to finish up those projects? I love the phrase "long loved". I'm going to adopt it.
