1st UFO finished for 2014

One UFO done!
This is a special quilt made with a jelly roll that I got from Quilts by the Bay in Galveston, TX after hurricane Ike.  It's one of the last fabrics I got from them.  I really miss that shop, so many things changed after hurricane Ike.  This quilt is for Billy Chapman and I mailed it to his grandma this week.  I hope he likes his quilt.

So this is a jelly roll quilt minus 6 strips that were kept for the binding.  There was no batting in this quilt, the quilt was backing with fleece.  Kids love the blanket feel to the quilts that are backed with it.

getting a slow start this year

I hope to make a serious dent in my UFO's this year
at this point I haven't found the UFO that I would like to be working on now
January has been very hectic and I'm ready to settle down and get some work done

I just found the binding strips I've been looking for for several weeks!
