Digging deep in the UFO box

This month I unearthed another UFO that I started as a BQL challenge 3 years ago. I had this little panel pieced and waiting on my design wall.
I thought I had made enough cushions recently with my small panels so I decided I would make this one as a long wall-hanging. I unpicked the panel and pieced the 4 squares in a row.  Because I wanted to keep it skinny to place on a small piece of wall, I decided that I wouldn’t add a border.
This little panel was a great opportunity to practice free-motion quilting. After browsing through the fantastic Free Motion Quilting Project blog, I settled on the Sharp Stippling stitch.
I finished blind sewing the binding while watching the Olympic Games opening ceremony (2 days later...)
Another UFO finished and another OPAM for me this month.
