Finished At Last

This morning I finished my Strawberry Baskets quilt that I started in 2008 at a retreat with Verna Mosquera.
Yesterday was  rainy, perfect for sewing all day, and I decided to work on quilting the borders.
I usually have no trouble deciding what to quilt in the blocks but the borders are different altogether. I usually get stuck trying to decide what to do. This seems to always be a stumbling point for me. So I procrastinate.
Finally yesterday I decided that I just had to get on with it!! So here it is quilted and bound and a big sigh of accomplishment. One more ufo done :-).

I have two more waiting in the wings with the same scenario....but I think I'm going to reward myself with a little piecing today.
Cheers!! Kay xo


  1. Oh Kay it is so beautiful! I just love that quilt! I am just about to start working on Swoon myself... I saw yours in the last post! Love all of your pictures of the harbor and the festival!

  2. Believe it or not I have the same kit, too. I've had it for 4 years and have not even started. I think you did a fabulous job quilting it.

  3. Great job finishing an old UFO - it's absolutely beautiful and I love the quilting! I think a reward is definitely in order!

  4. Looks lovely! Congrats on finishing it up!

  5. Thanks Gigi. Tried to leave a comment on your blog but it won't let me. I wanted you to know I enjoyed reading your nice review of the shop. It was so great to see you again.
