The official UFO that I've knocked off my list is my Starry Nights quilt. This quilt has been languishing for the better part of a decade! No joke!
I started it back in probably 2003 or so, when I was doing a lot of sewing. I had the idea of quilting it with stars, but didn't have the slightest clue as to how to do FMQ, or really, anything other than straight lines, with my machine. I gave a feeble attempt at a few stars, got very discouraged, and set it aside.
Flash forward to this summer, and I finally decided to pull it out. This finish was really pretty easy, since the top was done, and it was already sandwiched. The big pain was having to rip out the few stars that I had already sewn in, but it felt good to have a fresh start.
The focus fabric featured swirling cosmos, so I thought a swirly quilting pattern would complement it nicely.
I scavenged a fabric from a quilt kit (that frankly, I'm never going to make) for the binding, and it matched perfectly. Only a couple hours of work, and a UFO is officially shot down! And it's up for sale on my Etsy shop, too!
Kind of nice to start with a project so close to the end - gives me some great momentum for getting on to the next one!
And apologies for the not so great quality photos.... Had to pull them off my Etsy listing, since my main laptop went south on me this week and I don't have access to the good files... grr!
