UFO #3 is completely done!!! My goal for my PHD in 2018 was to finish 3 UFOs in each of the first 3 months. I did it for January!!! This House Wall Hanging is Done, done, done!!! I doesn’t show in the picture, but I did little clouds in the negative spaces around the roofs.
Another Finish, but not a UFO.
I made a quilt for my sister sometime around 1984 or so … I didn’t know a lot about quilting. It was a simple Irish Chain, hand quilted with a rose bud. I was quite proud of it. Oh my, how things have changed … my quilting has improved quite a bit and I very rarely hand quilt. And polyester batting is a thing of the past! The quilt has been used and loved. So much that the single layer binding has frayed a ton. (I didn’t know to use a double layer of fabric at the time!)
So, my sister went shopping with a friend prior to having her surgery and picked out a fabric to use for the binding. The quilt has faded and she picked out a lighter green that is perfect for it. The first picture below gives you an idea of how much the binding has frayed … the second is a picture of the binding on the quilt. (Yes, I broke all the rules about only hand sewing on a hand quilted quilt and I sewed the binding on by machine.)
