2nd quarter finish number 3
This must be one of the oldest UFOs in existence. It was on every finish along list in 2012, and while I left it off the first quarter list of 2013, I added it back on to my 2nd quarter list of goals. I finished the quilt top some time in the late 1970s or early 80s. Then it got lost in one of many moves and resurfaced last year. It's not a brilliant piece of workmanship, so I was tempted to leave it "lost" but I just couldn't do it.
One of my favourite parts of the quilt is the binding. I think that I pulled out every fabric I had to find one that would work with this riot of relatively saturated fabrics, and I even cut and prepared one, but it just didn't work. Finally, I settled on several fat quarters that I received in a grab bag and made a pieced binding that works with scraps in the quilt.
