Oldest UFO and BOM #2

What is my oldest UFO?
Well here it is...the top is so big I couldn't fit the whole thing in the picture. Only half the quilt top is showing. The border is in yellow. Now that I see it in the picture, I'm not sure if I still like the yellow. Oh well....

How old and why did it become a UFO?
This quilt top is from 1997. I remember being very excited about making it. I think the reason for not finishing it was my taste in colour, design etc had changed and it wasn't a priority anymore. I don't know if I have the name correct and I'm too lazy right now to look it up but I believe it's called "Garden Trellis".

When do you plan to finish it?

Originally I was planning to have this quilt to put in a guest room but that room never happened so the quilt never happened either. I have no plans at the moment to finish this quilt but I will hang on to it awhile longer (don't know why???). I have a couple other UFO's which I have not attachment to and plan to give for charity quilts to the local guild.

How many UFOs do you have?
I have six UFO's waiting for quilting which includes the Garden Trellis. Three of them are lap quilt tops which I will give away to charity for someone else at the guild to finish and one is completely appliqued with flowers, cats, birdhouses etc in pastel colours which I did in 2001 (I will definitely keep and quilt one day SOON!) The last one is a basket block quilt which I pieced last year and will machine quilt.

I've finished my Block #2 for the BOM Birds of a Feather. I really like how the dark background is looking with the pinks and reds.

Happy Stitching.

Your UFO is very nice . . . it's funny how our tastes change over time, but I bet there is someone out there that would love it *s*

I've been wanting to make this too. I just love all of their patterns. Even if I only made one block I'd be happy.
