Working on a UFO.....



I was stunned to see the date on the post where I first showed you lovely peeps this bundle of fabric!!

FIVE years ago! (I didn't even realize I'd been a resident of blogland for that long!)


I was the lucky winner of a giveaway, and received that gorgeous pile of fat quarters, plus a pattern! The fabric line is called Butterscotch and Rose, and is from the talented designer, Joanne Figueroa!

I actually dug in and started this project, as you can see in this post: click here.


And I love, love the fact that I got bonus triangles from the blocks, too: click here.

I dug this out of my stash a week or so ago, and said "howdy" again.....I'd forgotten all about it. 

I'd made almost all of the blocks, just four more to go. They go together so fast!

Check these out!






I can't think of another word to describe these beautiful fabrics adequately, except for sumptuous....they are really lovely.

Now I'm putting together the lattice strips and joining up the large blocks....then to put on my thinking cap for a cool border. Maybe I'll use some of those bonus triangles!

I'll show you more progress next time!

Love,

Under my needle.....

Ahhh, life.....it has a tendency to move too quickly, no?

Especially when one must work full time. But at least then we can purchase more fabric!

Am I right?

I wanted to show you what I had been working on in my spare moments!  The fourth corner isn't in the frame cos I appliqued the little one's name there....


Here is a shot showing the backing of the quilt:


Not sure why it looks so wonky! (Grin) It's a square!

Pre-binding....




I took these shots while binding....I do love me a narrow binding and sweetly turned corner!



I free motion quilted it with random stippling and every so often a little heart. You can see several hearts here; this was right beside her name.


I reached into the dim recesses of my cabinet and got out a UFO to work on....more on that next time!

Love,
