A very very long-standing UFO since this one has been 8 years in the making. I started the quilt top at my LQS Mystery Night one cold evening of November 2005. I made 16 of the 24 blocks and stashed the whole bag away until last summer.... when I decided that I would ask my fellow Bee for Bee Europa 2013-2014 to help me finish the last 8 blocks I needed for the quilt top.
I got all my blocks and finish the top in September 2013
and left it there for a while knowing that I had been challenged by Nikki in the Lazy Bums to finish it by year-end. So it was time to get it out again earlier this month. I wanted to add a piano-key border but after I had framed it with the Hoffman Sapphire. Here it is tested by the girls!
pebbles in the bottom border
and already in use.
Started November 2005, Finished Dec 2013

One last OPAM for this year and one less UFO for me. I am so glad.
