UFO completed!

This is a little wall hanging I made with the blocks from a crazy quilting international round robin, Fans. The stars here are the stitchers, Cathy Kizerian, Jo Nesham, Gerry Krueger, Bonnie Witt and Cobi Wittkoek. I trimmed them then set them in a border with a rich velvet. I hand dyed the lace......no, its not reallyyyy that orange.... and now have it happily displayed! Yeahhh!! Thanks again ladies for sharing of your wonderful talent!

Leslie, your finishing idea for those blocks is absolutely stunning. It is a gorgeous piece. You took beautiful wonderful blocks and completely them elegantly. Wonderful:)

What length is it out of curiosity?


Splendid!

Wow - that is SO fabulous! Not even sure I can express awe enough! Oh, and by the way - I'd LOVE it if it were that orange!
Dying (ha ha, pun intended) to see this in person!
Can you make it to Mary Jo's next month?

Leslie, this turned out beautifully!! It was such a fun RR! Love the lace (recognize it from our last Cheeptrims order) and LOVE how you dyed it! Wowsers! Will you bring it to the Retreat?!? Hugs, Cathy
