June UFO - Finished

Finished!!!



The borders on the original pattern had these really cool geese.... But
I knew that if I made those borders - this would go right back into the UFO pile....

So I changed up the borders - and Now I am done!

I got so inspired to really finish it - that now it is quilted:



And if you will notice - 
It's even bound!

A total Finish - yay!!



Stats:
Pattern: Lessons from Mama - Atkinson Designs
Finished Size : 55 x 80

This is a wonderful quilt, Alycia. THe different block designs are so interesting. Great finish. I have projects like that with a mindset, "don't make me stop, I gotta get this over with". lol

A woman on a mission! Well done! Sounds like you have conquered your binding phobia. :)

YAY!! This is a beauty, Alycia! I laughed out loud about the border geese - I think your border looks fabulous! Geese do look great. . . but such a pain! Beautifully done!

Beautiful quilt! Great job! I love red-white-blue and have several of those UFO's. You are inspiring me! Have a blessed day.

I love the "Lessons from Mama" book. The instructions are the best I've ever seen, and the sampler is great for teaching a block-of-the-month project for beginning and intermediate quilters. And the other projects in the book are wonderful, too.

I agree about the flying geese border, but I encourage everyone to
try it at least once. Alycia, your alternative border is great, too - I'll try something like that on the next "Lessons from Mama" sampler I do. They make great Quilts of Valor.

I totally understand the need for simple borders. It keeps the focus on the main quilt and ensures a speedier finish. And it is in time for the 4th of July celebrations. Awesome indeed.
Also thank you for your comment on my blog - Sew Preeti Quilts.
