UFO turns into a birthday gift

Every year our quilt guild (Rochester Modern Quilt Guild) hosts a UFO challenge with members committed to completing certain projects by certain due dates.  I had the blocks for this quilt made many months ago (OK more than one year ago and maybe even longer...sheesh!!)  All it needed was setting triangles for the sides and corners.   I don't know why I was intimidated by this step because it turned out to be pretty easy.  I really like how the sashing and small corners stones make this look somewhat like a plaid or argyle pattern.

Odds and Ends all finished

Back view (I hate how crooked the piecing is at the bottom - ewww!)

The light is just right to showcase the quilting

I tried some of Angela Walters Dot-to-Dot quilting technique in some of the squares and free form flowers in others.  The sashing was left unquilted and should puff out nicely once the quilt is washed.  Green Minkee Dot is on the back making this a somewhat heavy and super snuggley quilt.

So...a UFO finished and a birthday gift given!
