Just under the wire

Ta da!  Just under the wire as a 2011 finished quilt top, with 20 minutes to spare:

I`m not sure how long ago I started this one, but it was back in APQ blog days, so at least 2 years ago.  I think it was closer to 3 years.  It has gone in and out of the UFO bin several times, but this week I decided it needed to be done and here it is, after wrestling the borders into submission.  The quilt really doesn’t bow in the middle the way the picture makes it seems.  I`m not sure why all  my quilt pictures do that…  Anyway, Whimsy (pattern by Darlene Zimmerman) now moves to the finished flimsy pile to await quilting.  It’s next in line for hand quilting after I finish quilting the leaf quilt.
