A Long-term UFO finally is finished!
Long before October 2012, I had accumulated a collection of brown and red "vintage-y" looking squares, about 7" big. I made a few quilt tops with those squares. At the time of this writing (2021), I'm thinking that I had pieced those tops both by machine and by hand (as a Forever Project).
In October 2012, I finished one such hand-pieced top, which I called Vertical Diamonds because the top was a set of diamonds, set in columns. Truly, an original inspiration. :-)
Seeing as I had put a LOT of time into the hand-piecing, I decided I wanted it to be hand-quilted, as well. My major road block is that I do not hand-quilt. I've done only a handful of small hand-quilted items and that was more than enough for me. I nearly drove myself mad with boredom.
However, I like solutions, not problems. I bartered with a hand-quilting friend of mine .... I would piece a top for her and she would hand-quilt my top.
In 2016, my friend completed the hand-quilting, much to my utter delight! But, being the Master of Procrastination that I am, it took until now, April 2021, to get that top labeled and bound.
Yeah, I'm a complete lamer. :-)
I've actually made a web page to document this quilt .. will wonders and miracles never cease?
