Man, it's been a busy month already! But I do have some sewing to share again. First up, the UFO challenge project I selected from my many UFOs to finish for guild. This started with a monthly challenge of fluorescent color. The orange is surely bright but not really fluorescent, but I really like the way its turning out.
It takes a bit of rewiring your brain every time you play with the ruler, but it isn't hard. I cut a bunch of parts for the blocks. I found that I did not have enough of the orange for the pictured quilt, but decided I must have planned to make a wall hanging for just that reason. Notes, people! Make notes!
Also for guild, we are making dog and cat beds for a rescue organization. Good thing most animals are colorblind because these are made of totally random fabrics! They are about 16x20" finished. The rescue place was recently flooded out and will be grateful to get these next month. I'll quilt and bind it this week.
Finally, I finished a long overdue Christmas gift that needs to get delivered this week.
There was a lot of burying threads but I felt the simple design needed simple quilting.
The backing is some leftover from my Christmas Quilt. I actually hand stitched this binding, which I rarely do these days. I do enjoy handwork and have plans to pull out the wool applique for another old quilt UFO to work on.
