Working On UFO's

Last week at quilt guild, I got to show off the past month's UFO, all finished.This one was from a commercial pattern that I was helping a friend with, and I don't remember the name of the designer. It is pieced, not appliqued, which is probably how I would do it if left to my own devices. 

I really like how the sky turned out. It looks like the weather is getting ready for some action.

Unfortunately, the feather design that I quilted into the border didn't work out so well. I should probably have used a different color thread, so it would show up better.

 This was a very small quilt, so it was easy to finish up. Actually, I had been hoping to get that one in November or December, when life gets busy. Oh, well. For this coming month, they picked UFO number 9, which is much larger. It's a round robin quilt, a guild project from several years back. I made the center block, friends added the borders.

My Mom and I are going to a quilt retreat this weekend, so I'm going to take this along to quilt. Should make some good headway on it, while Weasley and his Dad are home having a bachelor weekend. We'll have chocolate and fabric, they will have beer and sports. I think we will have more fun.

Love that finish Karen! It would be a nice view to have out your window! The other quilt with the dragonfly is awesome too! You and your mom are going to have WAY more fun than the boys at home...chocolate and fabric can't be beat!

Still no bunny UFO? Boo-hiss.

Oh, well--the finished quilt is lovely; looks like the Berkshire hills in early spring. Have fun on the quilt retreat! Mick says he would love to join Weasley and his dad for a bachelor weekend, but I told him he's not to leave the house until he's fully recovered from his tummy troubles this past weekend. Needless to say, I got some serious Bunny Butt O'Snub for that.
