UFO Blitz

This is "Patient Pete."  More than 12 months ago, I was cutting up heaps of chenielle that I had been dying, and then cutting into squares and sorting them all out.  I had heaps of scraps on the floor and Pete asked "What are you going to do with those bits Mummy?"  Of course this led to him designing his own quilt and me off on another unplanned project.  The quilt top was made in double quick time and then it has just been kicking around the sewing room - waiting - waiting - waiting.
Last week I got busy and backed it, quilted it and bound it.
"Oh what a Feeling!" 
 Now I have plans to do another that has been waiting - waiting - waiting!  

Look out UFO's - your days are numbered!!

Annie, I am sure Patient Pete thinks it was worth the wait. It is GORGEOUS! And it does feel so good to finally get one finished that's been lurking about, doesn't it?

Brilliant Annie! Hopefully you are on a roll. My son would love the snuggliness of chenille too.

It's gorgeous! Maybe Patient Pete will decide to sew the next one himself, after seeing the good things that come from your sewing machine. What a perfect way to head into winter - with a cozy quilt.
