they always say the third time's the charm....

this is Judy's 3rd (but not consecutive) year of doing a UFO challenge. I've participated all 3 years now, and love the camaraderie and extra motivation to get some long neglected UFOs completed.
 
this 9 patch TATW quilt has gone through a few variations after making it onto the 2011 UFO list, (#12) and the 2012 UFO list. (#9)

this quilt-in-progress even made it into my (sole) linkup of Design Wall Monday way back in 2014! it's always been my intention to actually get it done, obviously!

 
BUT: the good new is: it's done! I've actually had the blocks pieced for ages, and just needed the final motivation of the end of the month creeping up on us all, to get it done.


it's a whopper of a quilt- it finished at 97" X 107". yikes! the pattern is a 9 patch- 5 different homespuns (3½" squares) and 3 constant background squares. this quilt goes off to the quilters this morning; we plan to send it to one of the MCC auctions later this year.  
 
can't wait to see what number Judy picks for February!
