I am very good at making quilts.....never so good at finishing them. But I do have a system.
I finish the top, cut the back ( or piece to fit), create the binding and then hang the whole kaboodle in the closet on a hanger.
My thought is....when there is that pocket of time to machine quilt, I will be ready to go.
So last week gave me those moments to machine quilt and it became a very productive week!!!
I worked on my Mary Englebreit stash of quilts in preparation for a "Isn't it great...Oma is 88" party that we are having for my Mom next month.
My dear friend Miss Polka Dot ( who needs to get back to blogging....please) shared with me the most fun pattern.
This quilt began as an assortment of 5 inch squares and then using a template, you swiss cheese the heck out of it and it becomes THIS!!!!
I won't tell you WHEN we worked on this...but it is now quilted, bound and makes me remember our fun time at camp each time I see it.
I used a new stencil on this one.....flowers and leaves. Very Mary like, don't you agree????
Miss Bailey said this one was her personal favorite. I have a hard time choosing because each one was fun to make and I am overjoyed they are no longer on in my UFO closet.
But there are LOTS more hanging there....time to get SEW busy!!!
