A Finished UFO

I started on a Disappearing Hourglass Quilt back in September of last year. For some reason it got swept aside, but I pulled those blocks out last week and finally finished them!

As you can see it has been pretty dark and cold here. These pictures were taken a few days ago, but today the sun actually came out!  I used a combination of stipple and echo quilting on this small quilt.

Sometimes it's fun to quilt the heck out of a little quilt.  (My idea of dense quilting obviously varies a lot from some other peoples'...)

I found the perfect backing in my stash and bound it with scraps of leftover bindings. It finished at 36"x48".

This quilt will be donated whenever I next send off quilts, probably to Margaret's Hope Chest.  Crazy Mom Quilts is on vacation this month so I will be looking for other end-of-the-week linkups and add them here as I find some!
