March UFO report

 My March UFO was my Double Duty quilt, a pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. I had started out doing this as a cross hatch in the log cabin squares. I had the top left hand corner done, stood back and looked at it, and didn't like it, at all. So I ripped out the vertical stitches, and just left in the horizontal straight lines. That I was happy with. I took the last stitches in the binding at 2:10 this afternoon, and took the pictures at 2:25 this afternoon. Considering I had to be at work by 3:00, that was cutting it a bit close. I still have the thread ends of the starts and stops to tie off and sew in, but that is something that I can do while travelling in the car later this month when going up to see Noel and Laurie and Avery again.

Here's a close up of the center of the quilt.

And a closer look at the design in the flying geese portion.
And the backing. 

So far in this year's UFO challenge, I've managed to meet each month's goal. I'm linking up to Judy's UFO Challenge Linky. She's pulled the number 10 for April, which is my Rose Log Cabin. It needs quilting and binding. That should be do-able, I hope. I'm also linking up to Crazy Mom's Quilts finish it friday and Amylouwho's Sew and Tell
