"Iris Garden" by con8487 

Let's face it we all have UFO (un-finished objects) that we say we are going to complete some day laying around our quilt area.  Many languish in our "to get to" pile for months if not years.  While glancing through our Quilt Gallery recently we came upon a UFO that required 33 years of diligence to complete.  The kit was given to the quilter by her mother in the 1960's.  All of the flowers required cross-stitching.  At one point she even ran out of thread and had a difficult time trying to locate a color to match.  But she perservered until she found DMC floss to match perfectly.  The quilt was completed in 2005 and includes many quilted iris to compliment the cross-stitch design.  Let's all give a big WooHoo! to con8487.  She definitely deserves it.
