February UFO Challenge Finishes

This month I had initially planned to do whatever number Judy had drawn. So I was all set to do my #10 UFO. I have looked nearly everywhere, however, and I cannot find the rest of the fabrics to finish it. I have a bag somewhere with the border fabrics in it, can't find it. Anyway, so as a result, I decided last week to try to finish my February projects and try to do the correct number next month. :) Again. (Sigh.)
So for February, I bound my ORB#1 quilt. It is now on my girls' bed. Hooray for that!
Elizabeth Hartman's Paintbox QAL from last year. Earlier today, this is what it looked like. I kept trying to get it basted this past weekend, but it did not pan out. So I did it today. And quilted it. So now it looks like . . .
THIS!
What? You say you don't see any binding? Yeah, that's because I just barely finished quilting it, and I'm too tired to do any more. So it's not completely finished, but it's very close. And I'm getting better at binding my quilts once they're quilted. I suspect it will be finished in short order.
Back.
I suppose I could have gotten a close-up of the quilting. But I didn't. Loop-de-loops. Some big, some small. I'll show some close-ups when it's bound and washed and dried. I'm pretty pleased with what I accomplished in so short a time. I'm kinda wishing I had decided to go this route sooner, though. Then maybe it would already be bound.
