I was determined to finish the challenge between two other friends and spent most of my sewing time this weekend finishing it up. I like how it turned out.
I love piecing my backs and decided to use up some fat eighths that I'd gotten many years ago at quilt market. I also grabbed some flying geese from my orphan block bag. I also always look for sale fabrics for backings and this light French General was bought for that very purpose. I think it's perfect for this top.
Can you see Max's tail in the corner? VBG. I think Wendy (constantquilter) just finished hers so we should be able to do a display of all 3 of our projects.
Remember the other day when I was saying my wool appliqué isn't perfect? Well, I don't feel that way about mitered corners. To me, they have to be perfect. It's probably the only aspect of quilting that I strive for perfection. VBG. I ultimately opted for the darker border, which was the definite majority winner! This fabric looks like a picture frame to me, so the corners really needed to meet up.
So what next??? hmmm.
Do you find yourself a little lost once you've finished a project? Not sure what to work on next? I always find this to be difficult.
Today I was looking for something to work on and my eyes fell upon a UFO from many years ago. I think it was a Bonnie Hunter mystery. I didn't get very far, although I did sew tons of the string parts together. I pulled it out but didn't really want to work on the quilt as designed, which is why I abandoned it years ago. This is how far I'd gotten putting it together:
