Joy ~ Another UFO Finish!

I got my March UFO finished, and there is still 2 hours left in the month of March ~ How's that for cutting it close :)

Here's my Snowbound quilt all quilted and bound.  (Excuse the pictures, it's late here.)  This pattern was a free BOM given out on Anne Sutton's Bunny Hill Blog in 2010 I think. She had offered more blocks than this, but I had decided to stop at five snowmen blocks.  My March UFO challenge was to get it quilted, but I went ahead and put a sleeve and binding on it while I was at it...

so it's Finished!
I took a couple of pictures earlier today of the quilting.  This is the first official quilt that I've quilted on my HQ Sweet 16.  I definitely have room to improve, but I had a good time playing with the quilting.  (I had started doing some of the quilting in the ditch on my Bernina the other day before the UPS man delivered my HQ, then as soon as I got the chance, I finished the quilting with my new HQ.)

This is a portion of the back so you can see the quilting a little better.  I'm having a lot of fun experimenting with the HQ, and am pulling a bunch more UFO's out of the closet to baste up :)

Hop on over to Patchwork Times Blog and see some of the other UFO Challenge projects getting completed.  The magic number for April is #10, which on my list is to quilt my Jo Morton Mini Baskets quilt, so if life doesn't get in my way, there's more quilting in store for me this month!

Enjoy the day!

super cute! love the snow men- and we always forget that we don't really have to make our quilts huge, don't we? no wonder we (I) tend to get bogged down in UFO's!
