Another UFO Finished

Well, I have finished another of my 18 Unfinished Projects.....although I got a bit of help this time from the Charity Bee of Cotton Patch Quilters.

Our guild makes quilts each year that are given to the American Cancer Society "Relay for Life" program and they raffle the quilts to raise money. We were in need of a FAST quilt that could be given to the Clark County Relay and were all kicking around various ideas. Then, I remembered this UFO.......






It was made from remnants of another quilt that the guild made a few years ago. I knew that it needed to be much bigger than the current size, so I got onto Electric Quilt and started playing with different ways to add borders to it to increase the size.







When I had decided to add borders that needed strip sets, I sent out a plea to our charity group and they showed up with Black and White fabrics, and one friend (Pat K) brought a finished set for us to use. They cut the strips and helped to get the strip sets pieced and then I brought it home and put it together. Ellen N. graciously quilted it on her Long Arm Machine. Here is the final result.......






We are excited to see how much they can make on this offering Even though it is a bit smaller that our usual gifts, we are hoping that the "Red and Black" (ie...Georgia Bulldog) colors will help it to be a big seller.








Only 15 UFO's to go!!!!

The quilt looks great and I'm sure it will raise a lot of money. When you finish your ufo can you start on mine (lol)!
