From UFO to FO

Every now and then I get the urge to do something with one of the many unfinished objects that seem to accumulate in my craft closet.

Here's this week's completion: from last September's Barbara Olson Jumpstart your Creativity class. Like normal, I bent some of the class rules and only used a portion of the pattern she provided, as well as doing fusible applique instead of the turned version she prefers.

Now I need a name. Any suggestions?

  1. Hi PJ:

    Love this piece in general, but particularly like the binding.

    How about: "A Peek at Spring"
    "Peek-a-Boo Spring"

  3. Okay...going out on a limb here.In view of how it came to be completed, my suggestion is funkydelic object or how bout Unbelievably Funkydelic Object...UFO for short.

    BTW, I love it!

  4. Cool stitching/embroidery. When I first saw it, I thought the flower center was a button. Great binding, too. Would love to see a close-up photo... but hope to see it in person soon!
