Bichon Quilt ( OMG) and !!! .........Finished (Or Not) Friday!!

 It is that time - and I am making it just under the wire!! 

My One Monthly Goal is...... Complete....

Oh ya!!!

This was also Februarys One Monthly Goal... and I got it into a top... but it just needed more - so I added the fun borders ( please note... The plaid)   and I got it quilted up!!


And then just to throw you all off track!!!! I BOUND it - Oh yes I did!!!  I even washed it, and took it over to my Mom!! Her favorite color is Yellow - and I thought it would just brighten up her house! Its also starting to warm up, so she can keep her electric blanket off.  and she said it was the perfect weight to keep her warm in her comfy chair!! Win!!!

I would like to say this is the oldest UFO I had, but then I would be jinxing myself!! and I will find another one... Of course, they can't be too much older - I didn't start quilting much before this....   right??

There is something about blue and white that is so attractive and I think that yellow just makes it all shine together. A beautiful quilt and finish!

Hi Alycia! This is one of my absolute favorite color combinations. I've used these colors in my bathroom for years - TMI, huh?!! HAHA! I'm so glad you gave this to your Mom. I'll bet it just brightened up her spirit as well as her comfy chair. Covered in love sewn by her daughter - big HUGE win. {{Hugs}} Thanks for the linky party. ~smile~ Roseanne
