UFO #1 - The Betty Quilt

UFO #1 was chosen as our challenge for March, my goal was to get this quilt into Top form, with a backing ready to go. Can't put too much pressure on a girl you know!

 First - I realized that I hadn't finished all the blocks needed to put the top together - so I buckled down and finished those.
The last batch.

Then as you saw on MANY design wall posts I struggled, and whined, and procrastinated my way thru getting the rows done, and finally ...much to the happiness of my children.... got the top done!

I also have abacking ready - so some day in the near future ( I hope) I will get it quilted!
Now I hope the choice for April is an easy one - Please Judy???

This is a beautiful quilt - great finish. I consider them done once the top and backing have been completed because the next step awaits the $$$ to have quilted. At least it is OTL - off the list. Judy C

I love the whining part -- I feel the same way about February's and probably this month's too! Your top looks fantastic!

Congratulations! What a great finish, and it looks beautiful. Sadly I'm only 2 for 3 (March let me down). Looking forward to seeing what you finish in April!
Cheers,
