I told several people on blogland I would dig out my oldest UFO and take some pictures. So finally here it is. And I"m almost embarrassed to admit that when I clipped it to the bushes it was just a tad dusty!
And why I"m sure you ask is this a UFO - especially since I still think it is my favorite quilt ever that I've made. I just LOVE it. Well I got all the little 4-patches quilted around and about 1/2 of the 9-patches and decided I just HATED what I was doing to the 9-patches! So it got folded up and put under my table in my sewing area. I just haven't had the heart to rip all that quilting out and start again (well I'm keeping the quilting I did around the 4-patches. I decided it needed something much simpler, more straight lines - but not in the ditch. So one of these days I"ll get to it.
But getting it out reminded me how beautiful it is and how much I LOVE the fabrics. I still to this day LOVE that background fabric I used. I wish I could still buy more of it! I also took a picture of one corner. All 4 corners are different. A flower one to represent the North (and I can't remember what it stood for). A Log Cabin for Lincoln, Clay's Choice for the South and then the Carolina Lily for the South flower.
