Description

This might be my oldest remaining UFO... the pattern is from a 2002 McCall's Quilting magazine and the Robin Pandolph Folk Art line is from that same era.

I had made all of the blocks but one set way back when and had partially assembled a few rows.  With my new design wall this was a delight to lay out and assemble!  I'm in the process of adding the borders now.

8/30 - Christmas Fantasy (name of the pattern) is now a flimsy!

10/1 - After getting the green light from my LAQ I added a border on another UFO - Christmas Rail Fence - so I can use it as backing for Christmas Fantasy.  UFO 2 for 1 Finish!  The rail fence blocks are from a swap I hosted years ago on the HGTV Quilting Forum. It is the perfect size to do this with and I have so many Christmas projects on my Make Someday List... so it just makes sense.

12/13 - Done and blogged HERE.  2 more UFOs down... 28 on the list.  My quilter did a beautiful job... man is it hard though to get good photos this time of year!

rasophie True thank you! I love this one too and can't wait to have a Christmas quilt.

WOW!!! How pretty Deb!

Stamdl

Rebeccajeffsmith Thank you... I've always loved shabby florals right from the start and still do. Can't wait to snuggle up in this one this holiday season!

I believe it! I have a Christmas quilt from my aunt and I have it on my bed from November till March! Then it goes back on the quilt stand where I can see just a bit of it. I love it!!!

Great way to get a two-fer and very clever too.

Stamdl

HawkFan I'm super excited with this plan!

Aizome

Two UFOs in one shot??? Yay!!! They're both great. Will be fun together. BTW, I have several UFOs that are older than that, so I'm not surprised.

Very pretty indeed! You won't even need to put up any other decorations with this in the room!

Stamdl

Terryt1955 Aizome Thank you both... it will be happy day when I see it draped over my sofa!

It's amazing, Stamdl . Truly lovely and you must have a huge feeling of accomplishment after ten years! Well done; enjoy your snuggles.

Quilterinmotion Thank you! The oldest UFOs do tend to be extra satisfying. Thank goodness I still love them too. I am lucky to just have a few that aren't my taste any more.
