First UFO Done

I'm ready to start on another ufo for the UFO challenge.  Yes, ufo #6 is done and will be gifted to Riverside Life Services.  I may not be so lucky next month as this one only needed quilting and binding to be finished, and it was 36"square.  My guardian angel was visiting MO when Vince pulled #6 from the bag to keep me enthused by not having to work on a bigger challenge on the first month.

I found this block in a picture in a Connecting Threads catalog.  I was intrigued enough with it that I sat down and figured out how to put it together.  Wish I had jotted down the name of the book it was in.  Whoever you were, thanks for this design.

I took large scraps from my stash and made the backing, so maybe I should consider this a 2 sided quilt.  I like how the quilting shows up on both sides too.

OK here is a post with a profile picture I hope - also wanted to say very nice quilt, I think I saw it already from a link on FLQ. I was also lucky with the first pick. Some of my UFOs are very difficult.

Aargh here is the profile picture I wanted. Probably too small...it is from the Grand Canyon where I spent the first week of January.

That is really gorgeous, and I love the pieced back, too. Someone is going to treasure that quilt. Great job!
