A very old UFO finish.... from 1988. The calico in the center(basket) cant' even be matched anymore. So it was added to from my stash, and the local quilt shop. It is quilted like mad...so that my sister who will receive it, can turn over the ugly side to use as a white on white quilt. Just glad its done! Motivated me to do another partially started quilt for, yet another sister. This simple turning 20, which was simply quilted in order to be delivered to Pennsylvania, early Feb. Unfortunately my flight was canceled as it went through Baltimore ..... so no cake at my mom's birthday...no quilt deliveries. But soon it will be there. Just hope its still cool enough to use it, when they get delivered.

Here's a picture of my 1930's stars, where I am at the moment. I'm handpiecing, and have finished 7 blocks since I pulled these back out of the UFO box. I love these! I'll be making this quilt 7 blocks by 6 blocks, with 2" sashings in unbleached muslin and then figure out the border size when it's at that stage. 10 more blocks to go....
