First Finish in 2015

I am on track to finishing one UFO per month in 2015.  Do you remember the Honor Flight quilt that I started before Thanksgiving last year?




It is now quilted, bound, washed and ready to be given to one of the WWII veterans for their upcoming flight in April to the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC.


I found this American flag fabric in my QOV stash and thought it would make the perfect backing for this little quilt.

This may only be a small finish, but I hope this will motivate me to keep moving in the right direction for using stash and cleaning up many UFOs that I have started over the years.

  6. You are such an inspiration! I think maybe I need to make one of these for your Honor Flight Vets. This was just the motivation I needed!
