Completing A UFO!

For every new quilt I begin and complete, I have decided to finish a UFO. I am working daily on "Peaches and Berries". I have completed all the small units and am now working on the larger ones. Once I get all four blocks finished, I will put them together into the larger block. I have now enough blocks for 5 rows and have 3 more rows of 7 blocks to go. I got the pattern from Judy's blog , but she finished her quilt in what seemed like 2 days. I have been working on mine for almost a year. I don't know how she completes her quilts so fast, but I am determined to finish putting the top together within the next week. I really like how my handdyes are looking and think this may end up being a favorite.

I have also included a picture of the last roses on my bush. There are two bushes and they are loaded down with these pink roses. Fall is in the air and it is like they are going for the last gusto!
Well, just a short note. Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog and for leaving me a comment every once in a while. It really helps to keep up my "blogging energy", to know that there is someone out there reading. I know though from the count that people are stopping by, but every now and then let me know you are out there :c) Take care and have a great evening!


  1. I'm with you. Why do my quilts take so long and other people can whip them out in a day??? Anyway, it is looking fantastic. And, love the roses. I've had to move my roses to s sunnier spot this year and every day, I go out to see if there are new leaves. Looks like they'll make it...fingers crossed. Lane

  2. Great blocks! I'm like you - seems to take me forever to get a quilt done. Too many interruptions I guess or I can't stay focused enough! Old age you know! LOL Love the hand-dyes in the blocks. I was looking at mine the other day and need to find a great pattern for them. Between the ones I've bought and the ones I got from you, I now have 3 containers full!!!
