I have finally finished another UFO.
We swapped these blocks with ladies of a Yahoo Group that no longer exists. We swapped blocks in a different color each month during 2009 after the block pattern came out in March 2009.
The blocks have been sitting in a bin for years. I have almost enough pink blocks for another quilt this size.
No fancy quilting on this one. I just sewed on the diagonal through the black squares. I didn't notice while sewing the blocks together that a few of them have the black squares in the corner oriented the wrong way. I only noticed while quilting and left them that way. I think the purpose of a quilt is to keep someone warm and pieces going the wrong direction won't change that.
The backing fabric I wanted to use wasn't large enough so I used some swapped violet blocks. If I use more of the violet blocks in another quilt then I won't have anything left in the violet block UFO bin and that's fine with me. I swapped the violet blocks with ladies of the Block_swappers Yahoo group and the pattern is another one of Sophie's Block Lotto blocks.
I think the violets go well with the background fabric.
And it feels good to have another UFO finished!

This was also my November goal for Lovely Year of Finishes. And it is indeed a Lovely Finish.
