Working on a few UFO's

 I hope you are all having a good holiday. I am using the time to relax and to work on a few UFO's.
I started this Turning 20 quilt two years ago. I used Christmas fabrics from my stash. Finally the quilt is quilted. Instead of thinking I am too late to get the quilt done for Christmas, I am thinking I am a year ahead.

 I am on a fabric diet and used all the leftovers to make a scrappy backing.
 I  love to make room for new fabrics, but first I have to use my stash.
 My kids always say I am making cutting corner quilts. I love simple and easy designs. This quilt is so easy. I sewed 6.5" strips together and call them my Bar quilts. You can't get an easier and faster quilt than this.
I love fabrics with dots, but also with stripes. I absolutely adore the blue stripe fabric.
For the back I used a berry pink fabric and it has polka dots again.

I want to wish you all a Happy New year! May 2011 be a wonderful year. And let this new year's resolutions actually stick! :)

Happy Quilting until next time!
