Now this would be what fellow quilter Ninor calls a FFUFO - a finally finished UFO.  I have no idea when I started this.  I do know DH bought me the fabric one Christmas and I almost immediately designed the layout in EQ.  However I've upgraded my computer so many times and had no idea in which backup folder the original was but luckily printed a picture which actually yellowed inside a cupboard door in my sewing room.

I don't know why I didn't finish it right away either.  Could be the one block repeat that got to me or the fact that it was done using foundation piecing.  Whatever it is done!

I mostly make large quilts fit for double or queen sized beds and always have a problem taking photos of these.  I'll have to wait for enough family members to be at home, in the mood to hold the quilt and listen to there moans while trying to take a picture.

Today however while sewing the label on I looked through the front window and saw our front gate and there...... I had the perfect hanging space for any huge quilt I might want to photograph.  We surely must have the biggest gate for any standard household in our city but now I will put it to good use.  Here the full gate can be seen compared to the quilt measuring 2.20 x 2.20 meters.
