Making progress on my guild’s UFO challenge.
I’ve completed three simple quilts. Seems like cheating but thought it would give me the incentive to tackle the more involved ones.
- Over the Moon I made this quilt 2 years ago at Patchwork Plus in a class taught by Perry Kentner using Linda Warren’s Learning Curve ruler. The only thing that was needed was the hand sewing of the binding.
- Dogwood Candle Mat I fell in love with this woolwork pattern while on my annual quilters retreat at the Watson Homestead 2 years ago because of the two-dimensional applique. The only thing that was left to be done was the homespun backing.
- Falling Leaves Table Runner The foundation for this table runner was completed at the same Watson retreat but I still needed to complete the applique. The kit had fabric that was to be used to complete pumpkin applique. Since the colors of autumn leaves are my favorite I decided to use the laser cut leaves instead. Quilting and binding were the only other things needed to complete the quilt.
Now on to the 3 quilts that will take a bit more time. Currently I’m working on piecing a group quilt as well as a wallhanging that is appliqued and embroidered.
I normally like to have hand work and machine work available to me at the same time. I never know what I am going to work on at any particular time. Also it means that when I am traveling it’s easy to pick up something to take with me and work on it in the car.
