UFO Progress Report
Starting with what’s on my design wall. This is called Flight School. I made it last November to hang behind the Christmas Village set up we have.
When I made it I got the reindeer appliquéd but ran out of time before I could get to the trees. So today I pulled it out of the UFO pile and finished the trees. I even got it squared so now it is ready to be quilted. Of course I do need to come up with a backing.
Saturday I was, quite by accident, in a fabric store and found this fabric I think would work for my binding on Jazz.
I had seriously thought of black binding with an orange piping but then I realized that I need the binding to fit with the back as well as the front. Tomorrow I will cut and press the binding and maybe even get it sewn on.
Puppies is completed and even the binding is done. I have it lying across the frame waiting for me to get it quilted. However, once again, I need to decide on a backing first.
I also worked on the guild challenge quilt. Of course this is all I can show you since it is supposed to be a secret. It, also, is almost ready to quilt. In fact this one has the backing and is sandwiched. But since it is not due until October, it is not going to make it to the frame right away.
And last but not least, I got caught up on the Calendar Challenge strips. wanted to feature yellow in this month but also to use fabrics that I am using for other projects.
Now, please note that nothing above is completed but everything is ready to go.
Speaking of going, I also wanted to show my two favorite traveling companions. These are my two best friends.
