I'm happy! I have finished UFO #5 this year!
Do you remember this quilt? It was supposed to be backing for the split hourglass quilt (using scraps from that quilt), but decided against it when I saw how it turned out - too pretty for backing! :) You can read more about the Jiffy-quilt here.
It feels wonderful to have used scraps for the entire quilt! Some of the fabrics I bought here when I started quilting 5-6 years ago and others I received from my friend Ragna (no blog) in Norway. Ragna, if you read this, I'm sure you recognize "your" fabrics! :)
For the backing I have used an "old" bed sheet, which was too good to be thrown. For the quilting I have done straight lines.
I have done the same "mistake" for this quilt; made (supposed to be) the backing out of "error-blocks" and scraps.... DH was almost screaming when I told him "this is the backing for the Jiffy-quilt"! He said; "NO! This "backing" is too beautiful for backing, you have to make it another quilt"! PHEEEW!!!!!!!!! So now that backing has turned into another scrappy quilt top, which is already sandwiched and pinned, ready to be basted and quilted! Seems like I never run out of work - haha! :))
More about that "backing" / quilt in another post! :)
