And, one more ufo bites the dust!

My last blue and white, Quilt of Valour, UFO is completely finished.  Yippeeeee.  This is the third one that I made from blocks that were swapped January 2010 with my Funtalk group.  Mitts was our fearless organizer and I ended up with all the extra blocks plus I made a lot more of my own and this is the last result of my efforts.
I added the border that says "our home and native land" - so perfect for a Canadian quilt of Valour and am sad that Fabricland doesn't have anymore of this great fabric. 

Having finished this UFO, and with two more finished except for handstitching the bindings, I decided to do a major clean up and then get ready to quilt (buttonhole stitch aka Patchabilities) my last project that I am determined to do here at home.  Still have a few projects to load onto the B-line and get quilted but all in good time.  Sun is here for the next few days and need to go outside and attack the vicious weeds that keep appearing.  I think vinegar will be my choice for weeds that are totally obnoxious?
Tomorrow is guild meeting and I am taking a free motion quilting class.  I know, I can do it but you always come away with new ideas and inspiration when you take a class.
