One of my two favorite local quilt shops, The Quilt Company, is having a UFO challenge for 2015. I decided to participate, and in searching through all my quilty stuff I found this wall hanging that only needed the binding finished on it. Why did I stop just inches from finishing the binding? Well this seemed like the perfect UFO to get finished for Valentine's Day.
In finishing this quilt, I can see how my quilting has improved over the last 15 years! So it is a nice reminder of my progress.
Continuing with the heart theme, this week I also finished a quilt for a client named Joyce. She made this for her little granddaughter who is moving up to a big girl bed.
You may not be familiar with how the edge to edge quilting is done with a pantograph. I thought I'd show you a picture of how the pantograph design is on a long roll of paper and set up at the back of the quilt frame. A laser pointer shines down, and I follow the dark black lines while the machine is running.
I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. We are covered in snow here, so it is a perfect weekend for staying in and quilting. Keep warm, and thanks for visiting!
