I am very pleased with myself. Why? Because the first of my UFOs has been completed to the quilting stage and I am delighted to have worked through the week to put smashing,and borders on it. This quilt is destined to be a workhorse. By that I mean that it is to be used to keep people warm in the chill of winter and not a work of art to be admired and cherished.
I intend to use Perle thread No 2 to hand quilt and have yet to design the quilting pattern but that will be so ething to be done in the next few days. Hopefully I shall be able to work on this through the next couple of months until it is completed. I am using 100% cotton as a wadding. It is easy to hand quilt and will not give much loft which with flannel is better I think.
The next quilt to be pieced is the Kaffe Fasset one which will be a wall hanging. Exciting!
