    Finished. Gave up on hand quilting and machine quilted it, slowly, because of all the curves. Free-form clouds around the words which showed me where to stitch them on the back. Clever, huh? Added my label. Hanging tabs will be out of the chocolate brown. Have to remove a stain the embroidery hoop left when I tried to hand quilt and remove a couple of stray threads.

    Absolutely Terrific, W4Me!!

    So ingenious right thru to the back with the stitched buddy words!
    (And I really like that backing too!)
    Great Label ... tells the story!!

    Love it!

    And I am very impressed with you decision to embroider the words onto the back in the same place as on the front - clever, and an idea I will remember for future use...

    Thank you all. I originally thought I would stitch the words at the quilting stage and quickly realized they would then be backwards on the back. The back wasn't easy (I finally figured it out at the last word) but the friendship words are on there. I also thought I would stitch veins in the leaves but I like the way the back looks with the entire tree stitched in one line so felt the veins would take away from that. I'm glad I still had enough of the challenge fabric for a frame around the label. It blocks some of the quilting but I like how it looks as opposed to a plain label. Thanks QuiltE for making me think on my feet.

    You're most welcome, W4Me ... I loved how you went with this one, fully creative while moving away from your norms and even found how to add in your love for embroidery.



    There's been so many grand FFC projects produced ... so much creativity!
    Waaaaaaaaaay beyond what I ever expected we would see.
    I'm SO proud of everyone who has taken up the challenge.
    And know that others will be following with their projects, when the time is right!

    Haven't visited this thread in a while ... glad I came back to see W4M finished tree. It turned out fantastic!!

    Now I'd love to see what QuiltE made with all the siggie blocks!!

    I'll give her a few days, I know she's got the fair on her calendar right now.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Afraid not yet; mine is still laying in front of me. It has not cackled yet, its an egg unhatched. Time is a timeless thing here...it passes too fast, or ideas are slow in coming. Take your pick.

    Thankyou DogHouseMom. I'm pleased with how it turned out and it hangs on a wall in my office at work. <o></o
    You areright that QuiltE has the fair coming up but I think she hopes to work on her project as soon as the fair is done, and before the next one.<o></o
    QuiltingNinaSue,you’ll get there. Soon, I hope, as I want to see more projects appear here,including QuiltE’s. J<o></o

    You're right Ladies!
    Hoping to work on the Siggie Project after The EX
    ... or even during it, if I have some sanity time!
    I have the pattern picked out ... and the fabrics a-waiting!!

    QNSue ... this is just the Siggie Block, not the FFC project with the FQ that we are speaking of. All you have to do is sign the block and return it.

    OKSGlad ... oh you are not alone!

    So ... for those that still have their/my Siggie Blocks to return for my FFC Project ... could I be so bold as to ask for you to return them to me this month, before September 1st? Thank You!!

    Maybe. Will try. No promises. Still have the extra you sent in the original envelope not opened in case it would join the missing one. Everything you will experience in your EX days, mine is ten fold of that here right now. Think I need a vacation....to somewhere except I'd have to travel and I am toooo tired for that. Guess it will one hour at a time or one day at a time here and remind myself to breathe in and breathe out.

    QuiltE, you will really be surprised to read that cleaning my Quilt Room South side paid off, 'cause I found what I had 'lost' or misplaced; hope to get to them before the cataract removal if I can see well enough. Do you want names on both or just the one or use nickname on one?????

    In the end, I moved everything back against the South wall; too many tables, etc., to put the shelf/divider in the center. When are we going to see a picture of your sewing place and new machine??
