A Vintage Finish

I finished my monthly UFO for the UFO project over at

I purchased a box of fabric at the yard sale
about 10 years ago for $10.

The original owner/quilters had sewn
the Dresden Plates together, plus
appliqued two of them to the muslin blocks.
I finished the applique of the other
14 blocks plus had the top quilted.

The photo above is of the back
and no, the pink isn't really that dark
(bad phone camera photo)

I think I will be keeping this quilt for myself!

Very pretty! And good for you finishing up what someone else started. Does that count for two UFOs finished?
