    Another UFO Completed...Well Almost

    I have been working on this quilt since Dec 6, 2009. I think I bought the pattern in 2007. I can't say it is 'completed', but it will be before this coming Sunday when we are having a family gathering and I just have to have a new quilt hanging. I still have to do complete the quilting on one side of the border and attach a label...YEA!!! It will be so nice not to see this lying around somewhere.

    Now on to the next UFO. My Tweets, which was a free BOM last year, by Erin Russek. This is a QAYG project and I am down to the last border and binding. Hope to have it finished be the end of this month.

    It is looking wonderful. It sure is closer to being "done" then it ever was. I love it!!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Adorable quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Well, it's just Friday and I have the last border sewn on. Now I all I have to do is finish the quilting on about 2 1/2 sides of the border. I have all the stippling done on the border but I have to finish the straight lines on the inside half of the border. I feel like such a fraud...my things always look better in photos...this is all done raw edge fusible applique and it certainly is not show quality perfect, but it does satisfy me. BTW, the spot on the fabric is just water, I was using a damp cloth to brush off loose threads, etc. and the cloth was wetter than I thought.

    What a gorgeous quilt. My Tweets is very pretty pattern too. I am just finishing Erin's Florabunda. QAYG is a nice way for something that big. It really beats sitting under a quilt in a hot climate.
