UFO Bust Report - Finished Mom's Mystery Quilt!

Ahhhh - a finish! It feels good.

It's even has a label and is ready to be turned into our donation quilt chairperson at guild meeting tomorrow.

I experimented with the quilting a bit on this one. The feathers turned out okay.

I ended up just doing big loopies in the border and then echoed them a couple times. It's okay too. The main thing is that it is finished.

I'm most happy with the star.

Hop over to Susan's to see what the other Little Green Quilters did (or didn't) finish this week.

The husband and son are gone today for Cub Scout camp and it's a sleepover event too!! I plan to run a few errands this morning and then sew, sew, sew. If I can find some play sand I'll probably make a few of these

I'm getting close to my 500th post and I'm planning a giveaway. One of these is on the gift list and I have a couple of other ideas too. We'll see what I can get made before 500 arrives. I believe that this post will be 466.

Lovely quilt and quilting! The folded ribbon borders are the perfect accent for the star and this is certainly a quilt to cherish!
