I'm completely motivated to work on "old" projects, which is a good thing...because I have a lot! LOL I guess "a lot" is subjective to each person...but for me, I have way more than I'm comfortable with! While I have this motivation, I'm definitely going to roll with it!
This isn't a UFO...but I did recently get my machine up and running! A couple weeks ago, I had a little snafu with the module, but a call to Gammill and they had me fixed up and running in no time. Whew...thanks Gammill!
The owner of this quilt wanted a little photo shoot on my awesome 100 year old porch, so I was happy to oblige!
This sweet quilt was made by her 9 year old granddaughter while visiting her grandma this summer! It's that awesome? Such great memories for them both and I love to hear of the passion for quilting being passed down to another generation!
An indoor pic, just for kicks...
Here is the UFO I've been working on. It's called Village Square by Whimsicals. It was a block of the month from 2010, I think? This pattern is by far the worst pattern I've ever seen for errors. It was incredible. Luckily, my friend Robin was doing it at the same time so we gave each other a heads up when we discovered the errors.
This is what I had in the bin...so close to finished! Why didn't I stick with it? LOL (you can see Smokey can't resist...so matter what stage the quilt is in...)
Recently, Terry and I briefly chatted about when a quilt lets you know when it's done. The other day, this quilt top SCREAMED at me to let me know it's done. LOL If you look in the picture above, it calls for another simple pieced border and then a solid border. Well, I know I'll only ever use this as a wall hanging, so I really don't want it much bigger (it's about 45"x55" now). So guess what...the top is DONE! I have the backing and the binding ready to go...all it needs is quilting. While it's still a UFO, at least I have an empty project bin to show for my efforts! (my unquilted tops are adding up though!)
Another aspect of living in a 100 year old house...see these "tin" roofs? This is right outside my longarm room. The housing management company is replacing them...
They've been out there about a week...and so far most of it looks like this:
But the new roofs are a big improvement! Not only visually, but there are lots of leaky ceilings due to those old tin roofs. Hopefully by the end of the week, I'll have some finished pictures to show you...even construction guys have UFO's!
