APQ UFO Challenge - Jan/Feb Update (A Finish - Yay!)
As mentioned back in January, I decided to participate in the All People Quilt 2016 UFO Challenge (thanks, Dawn... I think). You can see that post here. You can also check out the challenge with the button on the right side of my blog. Here is my update for my progress in January and the upcoming UFO for February. YAY!
I was able to finish the binding on my Antique Green Baskets quilt. This was a pretty easy goal, I only needed to stitch down the binding... but of course it was January 30th when I finished it!
I used a black print for the back and the binding. If you remember the story of this quilt, it was inspired by an antique quilt I saw at an antique show and regretted not buying. My longarm quilter, Janice, did a beautiful job on the quilting.
I even got the label completed for the back. Love making labels that match the front of the quilt in some way.
So here is the current UFO list that hangs in my sewing room....as a constant reminder.
Now onto February! The number for February was project #5. For me this is my Bachelor Buttons quilt that has been basted and waiting to be quilting for a couple years now, at least. This is from the book Country Inn by Barb Adams and Alma Allen. Love that book!!
It is quite wrinkled from being folded up. And it is larger than I remember! LOL I hope to get this machine quilted this month. That will be a challenge indeed!
This is hand appliqued and machine pieced. It certainly will be nice to get it done. I guess I need to get the machine I use for quilting into my sewing table and get to work!
