It’s a very crazy time these days for sure.
I’ve been self quarantining myself this past week.
With Spring Quilt Market being cancelled &
my teaching scheduled been put on hold,
I decided I would work on a couple of UFO’s,
something I NEVER do!
The first UFO on my list was Diane Knott
of Butterfly Threads Quilting‘s,
Under The Mistletoe.
This is a pickle dish block made with foundation paper piecing
that Diane taught at our guild’s Quilt Away 2019.
I had just 1 block & 1 more “football” made.
So, my favorite part, I set to choose football fabrics!
I love FPP accuracy!
I trimmed the excess with my rotary cutter.
It’s quicker than scissors.
I just hold the ruler right where I want to trim, sliding it along the cutting line.
Inner curves are easy.
Outer curves, even easier!
It was fun watching this piece grow!
I love using my stash,
not worrying about how old a fabric is
or how it my appear photographed.
Soon I was sewing in the corners & side pieces.
A fellow guild member, Loraine, who had finished hers,
recommended how to quilt it.
Something else I don’t do a lot of is my own quilting.
I love the way my table runner turned out!
If you don’t have any UFO’s (lolololololol)
& you’d like a project to work on today,
my quilting friend,
is having a quilt along with a free download pattern today.
What are you doing during this time?
