Another UFO is off to be quilted

Finally another UFO off my list!
These blocks were from a paper piecing class I taught while living in Montana, probably around 2000ish. They are from the book "Foundation Pieced Stained Glass Quilts" by Liz Schartz & Stephen Seifert. I pieced all the block & set them on point during the class. When I pulled this out, deciding it had aged long enough. I found that I had used up all the black solid except 1 little 1/2" inch strip. So I tied that strip on my purse handle & took it everywhere with me until I found a black close enough to work with. I think I will have it quilted with a simple meandering or stipple stitch in a bright variegated thread & I'll bind it in black which is  already cut & ready to use!! My daughter Hannah has already laid claim to it, which surprised me a little as she goes for more countryish colors usually. It will finish at about 83" sq.

What a beautiful quilt. I have never done one with a black background but it really sets the colors off beautifully.

I started one of these too. Mine is still aging. Yours is gorgeous. At least you started me "thinking" about taking it out of the closet! :)
