A Win and a Finish

Last night was the first game of the Stanley Cup Finals! 
It was a pretty intense, hard hitting and some awesome saves, but in the end...
Triple overtime, the 5th longest in playoff history, before...SCORE! 
The Chicago Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins.
3 more WINS to take the Stanley Cup!

While watching the game, I finished hand stitching the binding on this UFO that I took out of the archives back in April. 
Most of May, it was put on hold since I was way too busy.
I embroidered the blocks in 2010 but didn't know how I would layout the quilt. It was a bit of a puzzle. 
Here is a closer look at each of the blocks. 
(It was very sunny out so the backing shows through in the first couple of blocks.)

Most of the blocks I drew myself but I believe, 'Be Thou Humble' I found in a book from my local library which started this idea. I don't remember the title...way too long ago. 
The backing, border, and binding are all from my stash which makes me quite happy. 
Now to get it washed and labeled
