I belong to a UFO Bee and this year we are doing a UFO Challenge. The goal is to finish 6 quilts this year, but my own personal goal is to finish a UFO each month. I've finished my first one for January. It is a Thanksgiving table topper and is much bigger than the picture implies. The center is a panel, which was given to me by my Secret Sister in my local guild. Since I'm learning to machine quilt it was perfect! And it is actually done in time for next autumn, which is remarkable. :lol:
I could not find a marking pen or pencil that would work on the outer border. It drove me insane until I came up with a great solution. I took the paper tissue that comes with gifts, drew out the design on it and pinned it to the quilt. Then I quilted it and removed the paper. It worked great and even though the design doesn't show up on such a busy fabric, I'm very pleased with it. It was great practice and I'm now collecting gift bag tissue paper for when I have this problem in the future.
Please feel free to add any photos of pictures you have done of finished UFOs for this new year!!
