It has been a long time since I finished a UFO.  I’m way behind on my goal of one a week.  Springtime will do that to you when you spend lots of time raking, weeding, mowing and dividing overgrown plants.  I can catch up next winter.  Many of the UFOs will probably take more than a week to finish anyway so I won’t worry about that.

Many years and two sewing machines ago, I learned how to digitize.  It was long, hard work and I really didn’t like to do it.  I did digitize some labels, some embroideries, and this red work flower pattern.  When I found out that I could buy beautiful embroideries already digitized for a small amount, I gladly stopped.  My work had skipped stitches and just didn’t look professional.

a8I sewed out twelve flower blocks and put them aside as I didn’t like them.  While watching the Missouri Star Company on you tube, I saw a video of embroidered squares sewn together in a quilt as you go method.  This was interesting and I like to try new things, so I remembered the red work blocks and brought them out.  They are now together and will go in the give away bin.  No matter how many times I try new quilt as you go methods, I still Like Georgia Bonesteel’s method.  It does involve some handwork as this method is all sewn by machine.

It did turn out O.K. and someone will like it.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
