A Miniature UFO Finish...

Way back in the mists of time, at a crafty peeps weekend away in the year of can't  remember, some 1930's repros were turned into a miniature quilt top...eventually in a very much "on again/off again which spool of thread was I using oh who cares this one will do for this attempt" fashion it had over the ensuing years ended up at about 3/5ths hand quilted...Friday night it was unburied when moving something else and the weekend stitchy task became "get it from hanging over the tapestry frame in a state of being ignored and into the state of a finished quilt"...and wonder of wonders I actually achieved that objective...
The hanger is just for taking the photo, it will find a home on a horizontal surface.
Double X: from "Fat Quarter Quilting: 1930's Style" by Lori Smith", 16" x 20", hand quilted in the ditch

Enjoy your week.

Happy Stitching...

Congratulations on the finish - when something has been lurking "through the mists of time" it's always an achievement to see the back of it. (Did trumpets sound and did you hear angels singing? )

Jokes aside - its lovely and was well worth digging out of the pile !

You funny girl Annette - I think we all have something that has laid unfinished since before colour was invented... it's so lovely, well done on just picking it up and finishing it... now you have a great story behind it!! x
