2 UFO's One finish!

This quilt is one that my girlfriend's sister made for their mother (I think back in the late 80's or early 90's), but over the years the batting got all scruntched up. So I took it apart for her and put some good cotton batting in it and machine quilted it. She has originally used the tie down method. This time I embroidered a small heart in the center of each square and then quilted in the ditch in straight lines. I can't wait to show it to her. She's going to be especially excited because I've had it for about 3 years!!

This wall hanging quilt (below) is really special to me. I've had it on my UFO list for quite some time.......ok years! LOL This quilt is all fabrics that I used to make my kids dresses and clothes when they were younger. I wanted it for a keepsake. My problem is I can't decide what borders to use on it. Maybe a flying geese border? It definately needs something. So I'm planning to "audition" some fabrics and options this week-end on my design board. I'll post more about this soon. I LOVE how this came out.

This is a close up of a center block. Love the contrasts.


  1. The log cabin is beautiful, but I love the scrap quilt!!! The scrappier a quilt, the better. Can't wait to see who wins the audtion. You have good taste.

  2. Im having flash backs.... i can picture quite a few dresses/pant outfits that were made from these fabrics. I LOVE you moM!


So tickled that you stopped by to visit my quilting kitchen! I treasure and respond to every comment.
