Finishing off a UFO

Last September I started the "Pervalong" with Charlotte over at
Displacement Activity

This was as far as I got.

Until the other day when I found the above blog and decided to turn
this forgotten UFO into a finish.  Those who follow me on Instagram (lilabellelane)
would have seen these picturess pop up over there as I was working on this one.

First I doubled its size then realised that I have lost the
piece of paper with the colours that I've used listed so purchasing of more
fabrics to finish it as per the Quilt along was not an option so I decided
to go  into "freestyle mode" and see where it took me.

After looking at the Flickr group I decided to be different
and set my middle blocks on point but it still needed something.

Ahh, I like this :o)

The two pieced borders are 3" and the other 2 are 2"
Then did a little machine quilting and some hand quilting.

I am now pleased to say that it is finished.
I LOVE my new Modern Mini Artwork.

It is now keeping my Swoon Quilt company! lol

It is finished at 28" square

The hand quilting is hard to capture but in real life it draws the eye to the centre.

Enjoy your day
Hugs, Sharon
