2011 UFO Commitment–Completed

Early in the year my guild issued a UFO challenge for 2011.  Thank goodness they did because without it non of these particular UFO’s would have gotten finished.  Rumor has it we will again have a challenge in 2012 with a twist to it. 

I finished putting the binding and label on my last UFO (not really my last UFO, just my last UFO I committed to, I have lot’s of UFO’s).  The due date is tonight at our annual Holiday Potluck and Party. 

So here it is, in all it’s fineness. 


It was quilted on my very, very old original Handiquilter with my Brother PQ 1500.  I attempted swirls which turned out OK for my first attempt. 

Here’s a close-up of the quilting and binding.  Don’t you just love that bias stripe for the binding.  Since this will be a charity quilt, I decided to simply use a buttonhole stitch to sew the binding in place. 


Finally the back of the quilt.  I think I’ve shown this fabric before and I just love it.  I had just enough leftover from a previous quilt to use it here.  The fabric is extra wide (no piecing Smile) and came from Ikea.  Love it, love it, love it!


Now it’s off to the kitchen to start the meatballs for tonight’s potluck and while I’m in there I think I’ll make some cookies as well.  Should be a fun time. 




  1. YOu quilt is just wonderful...

  2. It turned out great! The backing is perfect and you are doing great with the swirls. Have fun cooking and at guild this evening.

  3. It looks great and I love the backing fabric.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
