2012 First Finish

 My first finish for 2012.  This quilt is a BOM  from Stitch 'N Quilt a local shop that has been closed for several years.
The blocks were made in 2005 and forgotten about, but since joining Sew It's Finished I have been going through my UFO's to see what I have and I discovered this one.  It was called Sunday Sampler because you picked up your block on Sunday afternoon.  The first block was $5 but if you brought your block in completed the next month your block was free.
Last week I added the corners to the blocks, the black sashing, borders and quilted it.
One UFO down and lot's more to go.  Click here for more pictures and information about this quilt.

Gorgeous mix of colours and blocks. Like how the corners are pieced.

Beautiful! We've had similar programs in the past in Winnipeg, but the fabrics have been awful. I know I would have faithfully picked up my blocks if the fabrics had been that gorgeous!

Thanks for all the lovely comments about my quilt.
There were twelve blocks one for each month. I can't believe how long I let this one hide in my closet.
