I decided to link up with Leah at "The Free Motion Quilting Project"'s blog today for her "UFO Sunday". Since my husband and kids are always home on Sundays, I normally don't do a lot of sewing, but I've really been trying to get my UFO/WIP's done, so this will be my week's plan.
Above is my most pressing UFO, a small wall hanging quilt that a friend asked me to make for her. Luckily she's been very patient :-). I got all of the quilting done Friday, and just need to make up the binding and get that put on. I had planned on attaching a hanging sleeve to the back, like I do to quilts, to use to hang in on the wall, but if anyone else has a suggestion for a small mini quilt like this, I'd LOVE to hear alternatives.
Here are 2 other quilts that need binding to be finished (why is binding so hard to finish up?). The cat quilt was a splurge for me, and was done on Marlene of Kissed Quilts' long arm!! For all 3 quilts, I need to cut out, sew, iron and attach binding, so that will keep me quite busy for the week.
The next quilt on my list to work on is my "Modern Granny" quilt. It's been pinned together for almost 3 months, but it's been too hot to work on it. Leah takes questions from blog posts so,
I'd love to ask Leah for any suggestions on how to quilt this large amount of "negative" space. Do you ever do straight line quilting? I'm leaning towards a straight line quilting, or something that echos the "color slashes". If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them too!! It's really got me stumped!
