March UFO is Finished

I have my UFO for March finished with a few days to spare.

It was a Block of the Month from The Quilt Show for 2008.
"Bouquets for a New Day" by Sue Garman

I think I finished the top in 2009 or early 2010.

There are 12 blocks, but after I had 11 done I decided I only wanted to put 9 in the quilt. I thought the size and being square would be more versatile.

All I had to do to get it finished was to quilt and bind it.

I bound it last night and today washed it and took it outside for a photo shoot.

I love the colors in it, but to be honest, if I was starting it today I would probably use a brighter whiter background.

I am doing the UFO Challenge with Judy at Patchwork Times
I can't wait to see what number is drawn for April.

Oh, yes!! I knew it would be gorgeous!! I didn't even recognize the pattern! I've had it for a while - a bom using more red/green fabrics. Yours is stunning!! LOVE, love the colors - and the quilting is beautiful. The feather border frames up the piece nicely! Great job!
