Aprils UFO #4

I have to Thank Judy for hosting this UFO challenge. I did not ( okay I really did, but I don't want to admit it) realize how competitive I am.... sometimes.... and it is all with myself!! My dear sweet family kept saying - Mom - give it up, its okay if it's not done. Well! Fine! I showed them!!

Sort of - the binding is not done, but because it is a Quilt of Valor I have this group of lovely lovely ladies who bind QOV's... and well - what is one more right?

Heres the full quilt picture.

Here's a closer up one. And I think I know (remember)why this became a UFO! I think these were the reject blocks that didn't come out perfect. Or at least square enough that I didn't have to majorly trim them. and of course I kind of forgot that until I was sewing them into rows.

And the back - just a solid piece of a plaid fabric. I like it!

And there you go - UFO #4
4 UFO's in 4 months - that deserves some kind of treat right?

Fantastic quilt and some soldier is going to adore it. I know what you mean about being competitive, I'm like that too - more with myself than with others, but hey, it gets stuff done!

Definitely treat time! Great job on your QOV.
