March UFO goal reached!



The 12 Quilt Square Quilt Along blocks that I sewed 2 years ago are now quilted! This photo was taken before they were all quilted, but you get the idea of how it's going to look. 
To read more about the process of quilting the blocks, click here and here 
It was quite a job to sash all these blocks, get the batting and backings prepared, baste them and quilt them... but it sure feels great to meet my goal this month.
This is the last block that I machine quilted, and that brown stripe really made it hard for my eyes to focus when quilting. There are a few wobbly parts so don't look too closely! But DONE is way better than perfect!
To see more finishes this month, hop over to A Lovely Year of Finishes link up.
