At last! - a 2016 UFO finish

This UFO has not been around that long - only three and a half years! But for two of those years it sat in my quilt pile with only two borders waiting to be quilted. The reason for this was that I got hooked on crazy quilting. So it has not taken me long to get that quilting finished and the binding added.


So here finally is my 'Jack of Hearts' mystery quilt that I first blogged about here. With more posts here, here, here, here, here and here.

Lovely to have it finished at last and many thanks to Heather Spence  and her Mystery Quilt for a Cause raising money for Cancer Care.

A few more photographs to celebrate the event.




And maybe a few more arty shots!




Hope your weekend is going well - it is warm and sunny here, feeling like spring has arrived.
