Un-finished Object

What is it about quilters and their UFO's ? I pulled this one out of its bag yesterday to show my beginner quilting students. It hasn't had a stitch added for at least six months, so that makes it "officially" a UFO: But I have hopes--aspirations even--of changing its status. All it needs is a row of eucalypt leaves quilted around the last border and I can bind it. Then it will be finished!. I started it, maybe 7 years ago. There are lots of things I would do differently if I were starting it now, but I still like it enough to finish it. So for now it's not going back into its bag. It can just hang around and call me for a while. Hopefully that will spur me on to do that last bit.

hand or machine quilted? oh it will feel good to have it done, then what?

The whole thing is done by hand--every stitch--including the quilting, so it was a slow project to start with. Then there are a few more UFO's in the cupboard as well as lots of ideas for new projects:)
