Another One Bites the Dust
In my continuing attempts to act like a grown-up, I decided I really should knock at least one more UFO off the list before starting a new Lori Smith project. Sooo...yesterday I finished the machine quilting on Spin (first photo) whose saga was chronicled back here. Scroll down to read about how I came to own these blocks and what additions I made. This was my first attempt at free-motion quilting so you should only view it from the back of a galloping horse, as they say!!! Anyway, it is done-done. It may become a donation quilt although Rocky has taken quite a liking to it LOL! One of my excuses for the quilting quality is that he kept laying on it as I was trying to feed it through the machine!!! Not helpful, Rockster. The second photo is a quilt made by a guild member. At yesterday's meeting several of the minis and baby quilts that will be in our silent auction at the show were on display. I will post more photos after the actual show May 4 - 5, but this particular one really caught my eye and I think I'm going to HAVE to bid on it!!! Just found out this week that a dear friend of mine is going to be "granny" for the first time and this would be so nice to welcome the new baby (provided I win the bid and provided I can bear to part with it!!!!) Company is coming for the weekend so need to get rolling on cleaning and grocery shopping. Have a super weekend and watch out for black cats, ladders and broken mirrors--it's Friday the Thirteenth, you know!
