Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

Two down!

I've managed to finish off two of my UFOs, only 5 more to go for the UFO challenge!
The first is one I started in a class about 3 years ago.  It's made entirely from my stash.  When I couldn't find a tan fabric that I liked, I tea-dyed some.  Quite pleased with how its turned out, although some of the early quilting is a little rough!

This one dates back even further - 5 or 6 years ago, also a class.  Back before I fully "got" contrast!  I decided to use it as a quilting practise piece, and used some metallic thread on the black to try to add a bit more contrast.

Now, on to What Comes Next.  This one is much newer, made this past summer - I first blogged about it here.  This was a guild challenge, which I have now added borders to to make it 70" sq.  It will be a Christmas present.  It is also the largest quilt that I have attempted to quilt myself.  Wish me luck!

Happy Quilting!

You are doing so well on this challenge. I love your projects! It's so much fun to see what everyone's working on.

Since I joined the challenge, I haven't had any time to work on anything. Soon... soon... (but probably not this weekend).
