It is now the middle of 2013 and I am moving ahead on finishes finally. Had to have back surgery in April from a fall in November. Lord is good. I am back up and moving.
I believe that the quest for the last half of the year will be to finish up a white/colored wholecloth quilt that my daughter and sister in law colored a few years ago, one of the wild ideas you see. I used a vintage quilt pattern, traced it on a white kona cotton, they colored it, now to quilt it. Will post photo in
After discussion with my quilt swap partner, I have finally come up with a plan to sort those scraps. I know, there is so much info and plan strategies, but it finally rang a bell in my mind. I used my Christmas money at Joanns and bought some clearn bings to put my threads in that are in individual tubs, this way there is more room and can I can have them in the same place instead of four different containers. I will use the other containers to put my scraps and fabrics in. I think the scraps
Once upon a time a quilter goes into the LQS and purchases a few yards of fabric to make a beautiful quilt. The quilter begins cutting and working thru to make this quilt and it just doe snot look right so she goes to the lqs again, sees a better one to make and purchases the fabric or kit to make that one. Goes home to work studiously on this quilt because it is better, oh darn, not enough fabric so has to go to lqs again, purchases fabric for quilt, sees another, buys it, then oh my a new fabric
As most of you know, it has been my goal this year to complete 120 UFOs, glad to say I reached that goal. It has been a long journey and a wonderful one at the same time. I am so thrilled and feel like I have accomplished something. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
I have been working so feverishly on my UFOs that it feels good to know that after completing 92 so far, that two have taken ribbons at the WSQ Show. The show is a people's choice ribbon award. It is judged by your peers. I have been winning ribbons by judges at juried shows, but to win by judgment of peers, I feel so proud.
Thought might be good to get some more additional education. <table width="180" height="150" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" bgcolor="#000000"><tr><td align="right" valign="bottom"><table width="180" height="150" border="0" cellspacing="7" cellpadding="0" background="http://www.thequiltshow.com/os/image...01_180x150.jpg">

I am so thrilled this year to have entered in competition. Here are some photos of quilts that won. My quest to reach 120 UFO Completions is getting closer and my work is getting better as I go. I will say, you must learn to do binding correct to finally finish a project to its fullest beauty. After getting the comments again from the judges on bindings, I now am mastering the art of binding. It really does make the quilt look better.
