LOVE panel

Another UFO done!  This was a panel I bought several years ago, along with the coordinating fabric, after seeing the sample in a store.  It ended up bigger than I thought it would, about 40" x 50".  I quilted it with just a general meandering pattern, and did the binding tonight.  Overall I'm happy with how it came out, save the binding finishing.  I'm still trying to work on my machine binding as it is SO much faster than doing it by hand, but I have yet to get really spectacular results by machine.  It's frustrating, and my standards are high because I can get it to look really nice when I do it by hand.


Here's the current 12 in 2012 UFO list and progress.  Red is what I did tonight.
