Judy L's UFO Challenge

Coming down the home stretch! I quilted a lot last weekend on my peacock quilt and planned to finish it. I over did it and only completed the center. My shoulders ached from leaning over my machine so much. This weekend I planned to finish it and completed quilting the borders. Now to trim the batting and bind it. It is nice to see the quilt getting finished. I need to set less aggressive goals or I will burn myself out. This weekend was better though as I took more frequent breaks.

I will take a picture of the quilting and post it tomorrow. I am a straight line girl. I quilted this quilt on point using the squares as a guide and came out with a square in a square pattern. I then stitched in the ditch on the 2 narrow borders, down the center of the 2nd border and copied this whole pattern to the last border. To me, it gives a Frank Lloyd Wright stain glass feel. Very structural, architectural feeling. I love it. This one is mine and will grace my bed soon! You can find this quilt top in the link "My Pictures" in the UFO album. Enjoy!

thanks for the kind words on my blog.
The UFO world has between 12-15 residents in it at my house.;) But for the first 6 months of the year, I intend to start and finish new quilts using the stash, and then look at the UFO's at the back end of the year!
About 5 years ago, I had over 35 residents in UFO world, my oldest UFo is from 2001, which I am pretty pleased with! :) hten there is the cross stitch UFO's..which I managed to finish one last night photos in the next couple of days!
Rught off to get yesterdays quilts quilted (I am a straight line quilter too;)
