UFO's have started landing!

I started this project back in September 2009, it was a mystery quilt marathon held by Helen and Molly to raise funds for her World Youth Challenge. Well Molly has been to Namibia and has been back now for months and it was time I completed the top.
I had stopped working on this quilt because I wasn't happy with one of the fabrics I'd used so I had to unpick it and put in the green, the rest of the fabrics are from Blessings by Moda.
Now I have two flimsies waiting to be quilted, the other is Angels Story.
My other quilts in various stages of completeness are Gardners Journal and Quilt Aid 2009 then I have many various little stitcheries completed. Not too mention kits waiting to be started. Not sure which project I'll tackle next but I'm determined to have some more finishes before I return to work.

Isn't the New Year wonderful, we start afresh and finishing a project is a great way to begin.
I can't believe that you actually unpicked the fabric, although if I couldn't live with it I probably would too.

yay for working on ufos...! hehe: yay for working on making others envious at the end of the year. too :)
the quilt top looks great and you did a great job with it (and the un-picking was absolutely worth the effort).
