Christmas Cards BOM.....five years on and it's finally together!


This quilt has been laguishing as finished applique blocks for over five years now just waiting to be put together and when I recently had a clean up in my sewing room I bit the bullet and started catalogueing how many UFO's I had(Truthfully)and had to hang my head in shame.But wait!!! I had a reason....I started full-time work around that time and just couldn't seem to find the time to put them all together hence the many UFO's hiding in my many hidy spots.....out of sight out of mind is my motto but no more!!! I'm going to be slowly but surely going through this humungus pile of UFO's and either finishing them off or giving them away to new homes where they will be loved (and hopefully finished by someone else).
So without further ado here is a photo of my quilt (I'll be keeping this one)!

Well worth the wait Barb. I can relate to having so little time for sewing when you work full-time - in fact so little time for anything.

What a great idea, I have done that,either passed it on to someone or swap for something you might like.
Your quilt looks lovely, well done for finishing it.
