Usually I underestimate the amount of time it’s going to take to finish a project … in this case I overestimated! I was sure I wouldn’t finish this one before leaving for Tampa (in 3+ weeks) but I was able to finish it in a couple days. This is my 2nd oldest UFO started in December 2014 but I’m not sure when I started quilting it, I know it’s been several years. It’s hand quilted in the big stitch style with simple lines. It’s the 11th UFO finished for the year so I’ll definitely meet my goal to finish 12 UFOs in 2020.

I do have brief instructions on my website – click here.


  1. I don’t know of any little girl that wouldn’t LOVE this quilt! Pink and purple rocks! It’s perfect, Mary!

  2. Love this quilt. Colors are great. I would like to know what size pearl cotton you used. I’m making a quilt, now, that I want to do the big stitch on. Thank you

  3. Beautiful quilt!! And I applaud you for hand stitching. I don’t even like hand stitching binding on and only do it for special quilts.
