I listed a few of my Unfinished Objects in an older post. And I'm proud to report that I'm crossing off a couple items! (You get to see only the one in this post, though.)
When I moved from Albuquerque, NM, my quilt guild of a few ladies, gave me a Friendship Square block. It was so nice. I got a total of 10 of them, but one was slightly off, so I might make that a coordinating pillow or something. So I'm very happy to report that after only 2 year of sitting on them, I got the whole thing set, machine free-motion quilted, and bound this past week.
I watched a machine quilting tutorial video over on Quilt Gallery at Quilting Bloggers so I thought, of course, "Oh, I can certainly do that!" So I decided to try out the design with paper and pen to see if my hands would even make the motion described in the video- it worked. But, turns out, on my desk-top home sewing machine, I'm not nearly as fluid. I do like the results, but the quilting is kind of clunky. Who doesn't love clunky??? You can see it better from the back- Click on it and it will enlarge.
So thats the first big thing done on my to-do list. The other UFO is more of an Almost FO. =) I'll have that quilted, theoretically, this fall. But really, its been 4 years, what's a couple more?! HA. I'll keep ya posted. Thanks again for Finn's blog who started this whole challenge rollin'. ~jen~
