My First finish for 2011

I just signed up for this UFO challenge yesterday but thought I would share this quilt I completed this week after it sitting for three years .It was a One Day Mystery quilt designed by Planet Patchwork and this was my very first time trying a mystery quilt and almost my last . I wasn't all that fond of the result when I first finished the top so I added some applique to give the quilt a new look. I'm excited about this year and my plans to finish some UFO's that have been lurking for a while , we won't say just how long and probably start a few new ones as well.

Wow.....I looked at the Planet Patchwork mystery quilt this new year and decided agains it but it was only a table topper! You've certainly added your own twist on it with the applique and it works beautifully! Well done....now onto an easy one for your second finish!!!!! LOL
