Here is what I am working on .

My New Years resolution is to finish some UFO's that still linger in my sewing space . I believe the year was 2009 when I took part in a Row by Row round robin with some friends ,yesterday I was making a list of what needs to be completed and this one jumped out at me to please finish me . My friend Lynda had made the two rows of spools with a narrow brown strip of fabric between them and I really like that look so I  went into my stash to find some fabric as close to that fabric as possible and started to cut the narrow strips needed to sew between each row .I also felt I should make a narrow strip around the whole unit to make it complete and then came the real dilema , what was I going to use for a border , I put the new wall hanging on my design wall and tried different fabrics and finally decided on this floral print but now that it is sewn on I am not so sure , what do you think?? It does have all the same colors that are in the different rows but is it too busy?
 I have joined up with the Sew Its Finished blog so I will be accountable for my UFO's .I must make the list and publish it on this blog so I will have something to look at and remind me of things that need to be completed BEFORE I start something new , Now I am not saying I won't do anything new this year but I will try my best to stay focused on my list . Thanks for stopping by . Sheila

  2. The wall hanging looks great with the floral. It really makes the rows inside pop. Wonderful work.

  6. Sheila, I think it is adorable! It is such a cute quilt I didn't even notice the border. But I went back and looked and I think it is fine!

  7. I think you choose a great fabric for the boarder. It frames the quilt nicely.
