oldest ufo finished

Ive finally finished my oldest ufo - yes I dont really have ufo's (or so my Mum says or thinks)but this one was one I started in 2005 when I was teaching in Barham as a class "sample" on folded blocks. I had made up all the quilt, bound etc but still hadnt folded over and handstitched down all the sides of the blocks to get the curved feel - hope you understand what I mean.
Anyways its finally ALL DONE

ooh very well done - and noice - my oldest ufo was pieced in about 1983 or 84 but will never be quilted. It's a hand pieced queen sized sampler and got dragged to classes for 20+ years so I guess it doesn't owe me anything :]
btw the Smoothie will be fine for Mia [ just not for the newborn usage I was intending ] ... I'll be interested to see if it drives you nuts too ... it probably will if you're a fast knitter but if you're a little slower maybe not. One can hope!

Oh goodies, you came back to us!
And 'feral', I would vote for 'feral' not 'cute'!
PS Cute too really.

I like it! Congratulations on finishing!

That's a great quilt, the really narrow sashing works so well to show off the blocks, but yet let them run into each other to complete the pattern.

Congrats on your finish. My oldest UFO is over 8 years old!

I wish my oldest UFO were only three!It's over 25! Most of my UFO's just need quilting & I have a LA, isn't that sad?
Congrats, I'll be whooping it up when I get my senior citizen UFo don done!
