That’s right, I finished a UFO!!!
This one has been sandwiched since the fall and I finished quilting it yesterday!
In places you can see the blue thread on the back. Can you tell that I like quilting feathers? It was hard to quilt them on the top because the blue thread blended in too much with the blue fabric!
The binding is a fake flange. I’m not sure what happened, but it seemed like the flange was too big and floppy, so I ended up stitching the edge down.
The backing is flannel. This quilt is for ME! Nice & cozy!
I used a blue Aurifil 50 wt thread on the top and in the bobbin. Batting is Hobbs 80/20. And it was FMQ on my Janome 8900.
My husband & I went to a new quilt store here in Cloverdale. The Dragonfly. I didn’t buy any fabric, but my husband did! grin! He bought a darkish grey fabric that he thought might go well with my Good Fortune. I’m not sure, but maybe. He does have good colour sense!
However, I did buy 2 bolts of fabric. One white and one cream … for my scrappy quilts,
right? I mean that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Finishes include: Sudoku Mini (here) and Ivan’s Diamonds (above)

I finished my 4th block for CQA 52blocks / 52 weeks. I’m having fun using up little scraps of blue!
All of the purple blocks are competed now for Good Fortune. Next is to put the centre together and make the borders … pieced borders.

Having one UFO completed and the next one is sandwiched … I’m feeling much better about the state of my UFOs.
