Jubilee + 5 + 3

Jubilee + 5 + 3
UFO finish #7, finally!


Several years ago, some bloggers decided to make Jubilee quilts which commemorated their 50th birthdays. I joined in but my quilt needed to be called a Jubilee + 5 quilt.

Time went on and my quilt became a UFO until this year when it became UFO project #7.

 There were things to fix or not fix - the bird. He stayed.
Then I decided I definitely wanted it to have borders. Too bad I'd already started big stitch quilting it! That didn't stop me. I fused batting together, added more backing and stitched on the borders.

I added some embroidery and I may add more, or not. I do wish I'd made it larger.

My quilt is not as nice as some that were made but the best part? Its finished!
Jubilee + 5 + 3
Hand pieced, machine pieced, hand quilted, machine quilted and hand embroidered.
I'm done and moving on to UFO #8!

Until next time,
Mayleen

  1. I don't dare start one more thing, but that is so tempting. How big are your octagons? I have fabric with the white background and black dots. Those dots of yours look so great with the brights; I see why you wish it were bigger.
