    Narnianquilter-your quilt is pretty. Are the ladybugs appliqued on?
    Actually the lady bugs, vines, flowers and sun are all appliqued and hand stitched. I started this project before I ever got a sewing machine and part of the reason it ended up a UFO is because when I did get a machine I was too scared to try and machine quilt it after I had put so many hours in by hand.

    My local Guild began the Finish the UFO project about 2 years ago. We now show them at show and tell also we are entered in a drawing for a gift card at Christmas. It is getting us to clean out the bags of ufo's and make love gifts of them. Thank God. Hugs

    Thanks Lara! I had a friend who walked me through things step by step for a while and that really helped. Then we moved and I had a few issue- until I found this board! I am learning things I didn't even know were possible! (Like the fact that you could use 2 different colors of thread for the top/bottom of the quilt) My next project after the UFOs are some FM QAYG!

    Oh, I don't know, quilting elves? Never mind, they probably wouldn't do it like I wanted anyway. How about copious amounts of pasteries that don't make you fat or unhealthy? They say it never hurts to ask.....

    Well, the weekend of UFO's is going slowly. My husband is gone and I was going to pass my daughter off to a friend for the day so I could get some serious quilting done. Then my daughter ended up sick, and we've been battling fever for the last 3 days. However, 2 of the 3 projects I wanted to complete are done! I posted my daughters quilt earlier this week (it's already been initiated by being puked on) and I just finished up a quilt for a friend. The only thing left to do is a few things I want to applique onto the top! One more to go, and I have 3 hours before the husband gets home! Name:  2013-03-23_14.12.21.jpg

    Narnian: Love your quilt, think the binding in that purpley color really frames the whole thing. Really a neat quilt.

    Great finish narnianquilter! Look forward to seeing your 3rd finish!

    I got the batting needed to finish my March UFO today, so should be able to get it quilted by the end of the month.
