Finish It Up!

My post will be brief today. The annual fall cold has attacked our house and 4 of us our sick. So far only my 4 year old has been safe from the germs. I just came down with it yesterday, so I still had some time to quilt this week. 

I finished 2 of my UFOs! I am so happy to have these done. I have one more from the pile that I showed last week ready for binding. The binding is even made, but the sickness has kept me from the machine. Hopefully this cold is short lived!

My first finished UFO is for my husband. I started this in (I think) 2009 with the intention that it would be his Christmas present. He finally got it on Wednesday night! 3 years, 9 months after I was supposed to have it done. I guess my "time to complete a quilt" is running over 3 years! Yikes!

I am probably the most proud of this UFO! It is my oldest one! I believe I started it in the spring of 2005. My Mom loves bunnies and I wanted to give this to her to put on her Easter table. She might be able to use it this Easter! Just 9 years after I was planning to give it to her! Having this done should really lower my "time to completion" rate!

(This second pic shows the true colors.)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We are finally experiencing fall temperatures here in western South Dakota, with highs in the 60s & lows in the 40s. I love this time of year with the trees changing colors! Hopefully it will last for a while before the snow flies. Winter can wait a bit!

I'm linking up today to Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts. Head over there & take a look at everyone's fabulous finishes for the week!
