Finally Finished

It always feels wonderful when a UFO (unfinished object) gets done.  This quilt, one I had pieced quite some time ago (maybe a year) is finally done.

It's not a huge quilt, maybe measuring around 52" on all sides, give or take a couple of inches.

It was laying on my "to finish" pile for a long time and I had originally pieced it to use as a background for an art quilt.

I used a wool batting and after I quilted it I washed and dried it to plump up the texture.

I decided I loved how it looked just like this and so I could not transform it into an art quilt with a painted design over the top.  It could be used for lots of things at this point...a lap quilt, a furniture decoration, a baby quilt, or a kitty quilt (yes, my cats love quilts!  Don't they all?).
