A finish in no man's land!

Well fellow FAL-lers (Finish-A-Long - a group of people trying to finish their UFOs) I was disappointed not to finish my spools quilt by the end of March but I have now finished it in No-man's-land: that bit of time between the end of quarter 1 and the beginning of the next!




And here it is - now named Spooling Around thanks to the fabulous Helen!



It would have been finished on time but for a bit of unpicking of quilting required to smooth it out at the back.  It is pretty plain with just two fabrics and shows up any misdemeanors and some little pleats just didn't add to the attraction....love the pattern on the back now though!


Of course the sun didn't come out today...but Maddie did!

Linking up to the Finish Along and Finish it up Friday

  18. It looks great, well done! I think I need more sleep though, I totally read the title of this as 'a fish in no man's land' when I saw it in my dashboard, and I couldn't think for the life of me what you could possibly have done to a fish!
