UFOs

Yippee !!!  Two more UFOs finished.  These two small wall hangings were made years ago.  After they were made, they were put aside.  Every time they came to the top of the pile, I put them down to the bottom again.

Now that I want to finish all my UFOs, I was determined to finish them and put them into the giveaway bin.

It’s a good size for a baby quilt.  The baby won’t notice.  Better finished than perfect.   Angela Walters has some very good YouTube videos.  I’ve started to watch them and am going to practice whatever she teaches on my UFOs.  On this piece, I practiced echo quilting with a ruler.  It does make a straight line.  The black squares are stipple quilted.  The light green sashing has curved quilting.  Angela showed how to both free motion quilt and ruler quilt curves.  I free motion quilted the curves.  I did find that the more I practiced, the better it looked.  The red border is quilted with a leaf background filer.  This piece will go into the giveaway bin.

I was looking for a certain color blue for a project and found another bunch of orphan blocks.   They were in with some mile a minute blue fabric.  I must have wanted to cut them up at one time, but they look pretty good.  I’ll make another orphan block quilt with them.  There might be enough of them for a Linus quilt.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
