Trying not to let the dust settle too much after finishing all four of the UFOs l committed to last quarter - mini GLOAT!
I finished my first Finish-along project yesterday!
I admit I chose an easy one to start - it was a rather dated printed panel and some blocks for the backing but it has lain around in my cupboard since Noah's survival of the flood was recent news!
Ok maybe not quite that long but it feels like it!
I have sewn those blocks together as the back
And here is the panel all quilted up...
with an all over wave pattern ..doesn't look too bad ....and only had to unpick a little bit which shows that I do need to keep practicing my FMQ or my skill level will quickly revert to zero!
Part of the reason I hadn't finished was, that I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but now I realise it was destined to go to the toddler group I help out at, which is run by the church I go to. They have a baby corner and the babies can sit, lie or roll on it.
|Close up of wave pattern - which works for wind too I think!|
|Close up of waves - as well er waves!|
They will probably wee, dribble and puke on it too but it is in dark colours so won't show the dirt too much and can be easily washed in the machine! Match made in - dare I say it - heaven!
|My preferred label - FMQ onto the quilt top! Remove that if you will!|
Job done and first tick of my quarter. That feels good! It will be handed over next week when mayhem in the church hall resumes! Argh!
In the meantime I have made a start on attaching Kona cerise borders to Fruity Polo and she likes them very much thank you.
But I think I will wait to give you the full colour impact for another day. She will also have a tumbler border round the outer edge as I seem to have so many leftover from that project - ha and I laughed at Carolyn when she revealed the surfeit of tumblers from her quilt - I should be eating humble pie right now! Yum, yum! Sorry too full as I just had breakfast!
