Whoop- Whoop! UFO 3 is all put together!!!

Ok, I got home tonight and after I fixed supper, I headed upstairs to my quilt room.  I sewed up enough strips to finish the piano key borders for UFO 3... I decided I would not put blocks on the corners like I was thinking. I decided to just do straight piano keys.  Now, maybe this little quilt will quit calling me...I've been thinking about the borders forever and I am very pleased with this one like it is. Here is UFO 3 (I'm still kicking names around and will officially name this quilt when it is quilted):

I'll be quilting this soon but for now, I'm calling this one a finish and I'll be working on catching up on the Civil War blocks next.  So, it's past midnight here and I want to hear a Whoop Whoop on this one!!!!

Yea for you!!! It looks wonderful.

Peg said...

Whoop! Whoop! Whoop! It's gorgeous - and I like the narrow border, just gives a perfect definition to the center without detracting from either the center or outer border! Good for you!

Barb said...

That is sooo awesome...just love love love it!!

You can tell there's a lot of work gone into that quilt. It looks like it could tell a few stories! I really like the piano key border. Yay, for finishing it!

AMKreations said...

It is beautiful! Amazingly beautiful...great work!

Miss 376 said...

Well done, it looks wonderful, great border

Tracy said...

Amazing! Wonderful! Incredible! Love the addition of the piano key border - it properly supports all the work you've put into the rest of the piecing. A plain border might look like a cop-out.

Great job!!

This quilt is really stunning. I love the piano key border.

I have seen quilts like yours with various size blocks and no real theme. I think they are beautiful and have been wanting to do one for myself. I have been saving some blocks from swaps I have participated in just for this project. Seeing your beauty wants me to get to work on it.

Nice job!
