Found an OLD ufo!

I found an old ufo from the 90's today. It is HUGE! It still needs one more border and I actually still have the fabric!
I designed the angels myself back before the MEAN quilt judge crushed my spirit (it's well now though). It's so big, I can't reach anything tall enough to hang it so you can see it.
These are the best pictures I have. I know it isn't an award winner or anything but I still like it. It was inspired by some beautiful blue and brown antique quilts I saw in an exhibit back in the 90's. The angels are supposed to be the pillow cover part of the quilt.

I don't know when I'll ever have the energy to finish it. Maybe I can muster the strength to sew on the last border and save the money to have it quilted. Have you pulled out any old ufo's lately? Well, back to work at my "real job". I'm writing about plus size girls' clothes today. Have a great rest of your day! Cheery wave from Bev
