UFO Finish #9 for 2007!

Hi all!

Well here are the long promised pictures of my latest sweatshirt jacket. And, this makes UFO finish #9 for 2007 so far! I have 33 listed UFO's so I am pretty excited by my progress :) Of course all of the big projects are still to come LOL!

This jacket is made from scraps from this quilt here. I had so many extra strip sets left over and it seemed like a shame not to do something with them but they weren't enough to make a quilt or something with.

Here's the back. I was able to put the peices together in such a way that it made a sort of "trip around the world" effect. I was worried that it would look like I have a bulls-eye right on my back but I don't really think so. What do you guys think? I guess I'll know if someone throws a dart at my back or smacks me right in the middle of my back. If that happens I'll know that it looks like a bulls-eye for sure and then maybe I'll decide to change it LOL! :)

I just did this personality type blog thing that I saw on another blog and I was really surprised because it actually really speaks to my character. I don't know if that is goo, or, not; but, it really does LOL!

You're an intellectual, and you've worked hard to get where you are now. You're a strong believer in education, and you think many of the world's problems could be solved if people were more informed and more rational. You have no tolerance for sloppy or lazy thinking. It frustrates you when people who are ignorant or dishonest rise to positions of power. You believe that people can make a difference in the world, and you're determined to try.

I don't think it looks like a bulls eye at all. Maybe if it were in red and black it would but not in those soft colors.

Thanks for the link Katrina, but I'm a bit confused as it only showed a photo of the ruler. Trying to figure out in my visual head how it works. Maybe I need to find a store that stocks it and actually see it in person.
Love your jacket, my gosh haven't you been a busy beaver.

That jacket is just wonderful, Katrina! I love those baskets and appliqued flowers on it!! So if you're worried that darts are being flung at your back, just send it on to me LOL!!!
