UFO Challenge 2012 update--June

Close, but no cigar, as they say.  With this month's UFO pick I started with a bunch of swapped 9 patch blocks and ended up here:

Completed top, backing, and binding.  Since I just finished another quilt yesterday that was a UFO Challenge 2012 pick leftover, my record for near finishes stands.  Overall, I am happy with these X's and O's and using up stash to eke out the pieced backing.  The pink and brown and cream make a nice Neapolitan treat.  Maybe that will be my quilt's new name.  What do you think? 

Judy's number pick for the month of July is 3.  On my list that is the Cheddar and Cinnamon quilt, which is a carryover from last year's challenge. Hmm, another food-related name.  The top is complete and the quilt needs backing, quilting, and binding.  Since I will be having more free time when my job ends in a week, I hope to devote proper attention and have a finish to show at the end of July.  See more finishes on Judy's Patchwork Times

Congrats on your almost finish! I have to remind myself that any progress is better than no progress. Good luck with July's project.

This is very pretty - I absolutely love the blocks. The back is pretty too!
