Jenna's Butterfly Fling

I put the final stitches in for Jenna's Butterfly Fling quilt tonight, my #6 UFO for Judy's UFO Challenge. I have to say that I don't think I would have finished this quilt anytime soon if it wasn't for the challenge, because I just didn't have the kick in the pants that I needed. Thanks for the kick Judy! 


When I started the month, I had the top and binding done, and a little fabric pulled together for the back (but I knew it wasn't enough). I split out what I needed to do over the month as follows: week 1: make the back, week 2: Load and quilt, week 3: bind, week 4: label and relax. The plan went awry in week 2 when it took longer than planned to quilt, but I managed to catch up with a lot of binding this weekend! 


You got a sneak peek at how happy Jenna is with the quilt when I took it off the frame, but here's the final product. 

I am hoping for an easy draw for the month of February because I have another busy month at work and would like to have some time to work on my new projects. Numbers 3,5,8,9,11, or 12 would be good ones to pull. Fingers crossed!

Too funny about your required numbers for February! Did you email Judy and tell her? lol

The quilt looks great! And I am sure that Jenna will be sooo happy to see it in the morning! :)

I feel the same way--I needed Judy's kick in the pants or I never would have finished my #6--just didn't like it much. Now that it's finished, I LOVE it!

Bet Jenna is really happy now that it's bound and ready to use. A lovely quilt!

Very cute quilt. The border fabric really sets it off.
