This is one of my oldest UFOs. This top has been hanging in my closet for about 5 years, but the pieced blocks are actually from a 2003 Saturday Sampler. That is 13 years!
And I know exactly why this became a 13 year old UFO - it is flannel, and I really don't enjoy sewing on flannel. It stretches, it creates a ton of fuzz, and it's heavy. In this case I made it twin size wide but extra long.
A couple of days ago I did some cleaning in my sewing room and found 3 yards of a black flannel with tiny pink flowers and green leaves. Digging further revealed 3 yards of a forest green flannel. The 2 seemed to be coordinating colors but come from different manufacturers. Did I purchase these for backing? I have no idea. But those 6 yards were just enough to make a pieced backing for this quilt.
This will go to be quilted sometime in the next few days, and I'm hoping this will be the first finish of 2016.
