Nearly an FO (Finished Object)


I am a quilter but just lately I had lost my passion for sewing. That is really not me as I lived to sew. Anyway, I have recently started to sew again but am determined to finish some projects that I started but never finished a 1000 years ago. These are affectionately known as UFOs (unfinished objects).

This is a quilt top that I made sometime before the written word was invented so I have backed it and quilted it and it is now ready to take with me when we go away this May Bank Holiday weekend where I can hand sew the binding to the back and maybe add a bit of hand quilting to it.

I can't say I like it but at least it's finished.

How could you not love that?! Joy, it's beautiful and deserves to be finished and dispalyed/used.

Honestly Madam Cowpat, whats not to like? Such a pretty pattern, cheery colours, very fine workmanship, its gorgeous! I can't wait to see it all finished with some hand quilting, what quilting patterns are you going to use?

It's gorgeous - might not be your colours, but the work in it is beautiful. More pics when you've finished the handquilting.
