How many UFO”s do you have? Me, too many that this year I decided to join the American Pathwork and Quilting UFO challenge and try to do some catch up (but not promising, 😉 I filled up the page, 12 lines/12 months.
At the end of 2019, December, I finished a baby quilt that should have been finished in August 2019.
I tried different new techniques to me and I think they turned out pretty good. I was satisfied. Baby will not judge. Pattern name: Baby Lattice Quilt by www.diaryofaquilter And I had the perfect matching thread by Superior Threads, omni thread, color number 3082, Willow, 40wt. Quilted on HQ Sweet Sixteen.
January finish was a scrappy heart quilt for my younger sister. She had posted the picture of quilt on her social media page and I told my other sister, who also quilts, LadyRiderQuilting, lets make it for her.
We started it on September and finished piecing it up in November. we used our scrappy 2.5″ squares and the background fabric is Moda Bella solids, Lt Blue.
Setting it on point was challenging since there was no tutorial on it. Doing many researches I made it work. Challenging but enjoyable.
I made it my January UFO to quilt it. I did the best to quilt it just like in the picture of original quilt. I used Superior Threads So Fine 50wt, color 402 Pearl. Quilted on HQ Sweet Sixteen.
The original quilter/maker of this pattern named the quilt Valentine Candy Block. She (JENNR8R) has a tutorial on Quilting Board.com
February: UFO accomplished
Desert Sky by Judy Niemeyer. Started this in March 2016 and finished piecing February 2020. Fabrics given to me by a friend. I used a Hoffman Batik Bali Blenders (839-112 Dawn) to break up the business of the fabrics and added a 1.5″ narrow border then added a wide border. Not quilted.
March: working on UFO Long Time Gone by Jen Kingwell.
Then we had fun at QuiltCon in Austin, Tx in late February, 2020
We also met but not pictured, (shucks): Gudrun Erla the designer of the stripology ruler. Awesome ruler, you need to get one if you don’t have it.
Jacquie Gering, of tallgrass prairie studio. She does awesome quilting with a walking foot on domestic sewing machine
Christina Cameli, does beautiful free-motion quilting on domestic sewing machine.
The Ruby Star Society Designers.
I was hoping to have met Sarah Fielke of Australia. But she was in all day teaching /lecture classes. 😦
And others we probably missed. We went for one day, not enough hours. Until next time QuiltCon.
