June UFO #12 - Finish

Sorry it has been so long... work and life have gotten in the way of me doing any sewing let alone blogging.

My #12 from my UFO list is an artsy type quilt for my son-in-law and I decided early in June that it would not be done by the end of the month.

So I decided to do a switch with another quilt that I finished this month.... the daughter of our best friends from college got married last weekend (June 24) and I made a quilt for them as a gift. 

Pattern is Dessert Time Quilt by Marty Halus (published by Eleanor Burns).  I think this is the fourth quilt that I have made with this pattern. - it is somewhat quick and easy and I love making the piano keys around the edge. 

I was able to make this quilt just with fabric I had in my stash and I used the rest of the fabric from the inside bordor as the backing material.  However, it was not wide enough - so I made another set of piano keys to put around the outside of the backing.  Though I love how it looks I will never do that again.... took a lot of time and too much math to figure it all out.

  1. A finish is a finish no matter what the number on the list. It looks great and I'm sure the bride and groom will love it in the years to come.
