Good Morning Quilters!
Today I happily show you a finished quilt! My UFO of Birds of a Feather, pattern by Barb Adams and Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs is finished. Most of the quilt is per their pattern, with a simple border instead of their applique border.
It is back from the long arm quilter and I finished sewing the binding on it yesterday. My long arm quilter, Sue Daurio, (Here) did a fantastic job of custom quilting it, and I am amazed and so pleased with the combination of her quilting and the piecing. It's final size is 74" by 86".
Here are some pictures:
This quilt has a long history. The pattern was offered as a monthly section of a newspaper in the State of Washington long ago. Lori DeJarnatt's blog (Humble Quilts) (Her post) had a give-a-way of this pattern in January of 2011, and my friend Sharyn Mallow Woerz won the pattern. Sharyn worked on it for a while, and when she tired of it, she asked if I wanted to take it on. I never turn down a free pattern, and said "Yes, please!"
I blogged about receiving it from Sharyn and my start of work on it in March of 2013. Sharyn had a dark green background fabric, and I changed it to this light background, and used a lot of Sharyn's teal blue and gold fabrics. Soooo, 10 years later, it is March, 2023, and this quilt is born! The label has to be made yet, and I will include Sharyn's name with mine, as it was a joint effort. I am so happy it is finally a finished quilt.

The joy of getting a UFO finished is amazing. I will have another one to show you next week!
