I know exactly why this UFO became a neglected project. This was a flannel Saturday Sampler from about 2001. I know - shameful, isn't it? And the reason this one was put aside was because the side strips were 3" too short on each side and I had used up the black flannel that is in the sashing. So, instead of buying more black I just folded it all up and put it away.
This week I bought a small piece of black flannel and put the same width sashing strips at the top and bottom of both side borders. Voila!!! I made this extra long for some reason, so it looks quite long and narrow. But it is actually about 65" wide so it might fit a long twin bed. Or be a lap quilt for someone really tall. What was I thinking? Who knows - but the top is done after 13 years.
