Old UFO


is finished. Remember this, Becca?!? This one was started in August 2004 when 7 of us on the Dear Jane list did a block swap using Jennifer Chiaverini's book and her fabrics from Red Rooster. Since 7 does not a quilt make, I made two more and here is the result. This was also my first attempt at flying geese, and I think they really are quite stunning as a border (she said modestly--actually I mean the design element, not the execution!!). Then I had it assembled as a top one year later, and 2 years ago started to quilt it. I broke a needle and jammed it in the hook assembly, so off it came and languished until this week when I finally reloaded it and finished. Whew!! By the way, the fabulous Lamoyne star, top left, was the one Becca did. My contribution to the group was the hand appliqued center.
