Judy L's UFO Challenge

Wednesday, May 02, 2007

Reflections on April. What did I accomplish this month? I finished my King size log cabin and got it sent off in time for momma's birthday. She loved it! I also got the quilting done on a baby quilt with the exception of one round for the border. I managed to get half way through the nine patch on point quilt. The one thing that I am overlooking here that isn't quite as tangible is that I am getting to know my new sewing machine. I have used different feet and stiches. I have had to play with the tension and work through some issues that seem to be a thread issue. I have done simple straight seams, sewn down a binding and progressed to simple quilting. I plan to progress to free motion quilting next and feel up to that challenge! All in all not a bad month!

Hey Swooze, sorry to hear you weren't well, and also to hear about your tension issues. You are a star to pick it all out again (I generally decided that no-one will really notice) but I'm glad to see someone else who walks the talk and experiments on the actual quilt hoping for the best, that's like me, no wasting time on practice sandwiches lol. Best wishes, Sharon
