Another UFO

I found this pattern in "the Quilter Magazine" Sept 2004.  I cut out the pieces and then let it lay.
This years -New Year's resolution was to finish a UFO per month and this is one of those UFO's. 

The border or borders still need to be added.  Those are more difficult.  The border has to fit the quilt.  So far nothing I have tried makes the quilt sing.  With my huge stash- there has to be the right fabric here somewhere.

Happy "sane" or "crazy" quilting!
Also, I have been working on my "fan" crazy quilt and will update you tomorrow on it's progress.

Crazy Quilt FAbric

We all know, quilters love fabric, well crazy quilters are even worse.  At yesterdays CQ meeting, one of the girls brought fabric to share.  Wow, I feel I have died and gone to heaven.  I love all of them.

Art Project

I found this artwork in "The Quilter" Sept 2004 issue by Maria Chisnall.  It has been on my list to make for years.  At last, I plan to start.  I just need to figure the best stabilizer.  Any suggestions???

This is my first real art piece and I have a lot to learn.

Completing a UFO

I spotted this pattern by Tiffany Burrow in McCalls June 2003 magazine.  Being a new quilter at the time and an accomplished seamstress, I did not appreciate the skill level required to piece this quilt.  At last, I have retrieved it from its hiding place and finally finished it.  Completing a UFO just makes you want to shout out loud.
