July's Finished UFO

I gave this quilt away before I got a photo of it finished... Now I have a picture to share - here it is with its new owner - my grandson - MYLES

My oldest UFO

I made eight of these OWL blocks, from a pattern I found in an Australian women's magazine. Simply can't recall which one.

I started it 26 years ago. How old is YOUR oldest UFO?

September - start a quilt - finish a quilt

I didn't get to complete a UFO for August, as per my new years resolution starting July 2012... but, I did start and finish two quilts in August so I am letting myself off the hook. You can see them on my Finished Quilts page.

Now, it's time to make a commitment to a UFO for September. I have chosen to complete the Double Wedding Ring quilt that I started in the mid 80s. (EEEkkk 20 years ago!). It is by machine, using the Mary Ellen Hopkins method, and I started it in a workshop organised by Patchwork Plus (then of Hurstville) and taught by Noreen Dunn (since passed away).

I have had a hankering for a Dresden Plate quilt lately. So maybe that will be the new quilt for September. I have a delightful little collection of Liberty Craft Fabrics that are appealing to me.

what are you starting/finishing?
