I've been trying to find time to write a post - I keep getting distracted with everyone's blogs! Especially this time of year with all the new projects and BOMs!
(I love them, love them, love them! And want to start them!)
I was thinking last year I completed two UFO's and one new project. I was pretty happy with that.
Then I decided it was time to make a list of all my quilts and projects.
(I haven't been brave enough to do this for the past 5 years.)
I came up to lucky number 12. Well, it I finish only 2 a year it will take me 6 YEARS to finish them. NOT acceptable.
So how can I get more done yet not feel I'm chained to my machine?
(Oh my gosh! I just remembered three more UFOs!)
Here's what I'm working on for January. My Civil War quilt.
I've only just pinned the vines down to get an idea of how to do this.
I have to tell you about this - because if you ever make vines on a quilt, this is the way to go.
Clover makes this fusiable webbing for bias tape and it's the BEST!!
I applied it to the vine (with an iron) and then once it placed on my border pulled off the paper and applied the iron to make it stay. Sooo EASY!!!
Picture is before I ironed on the vines, flowers, etc.
This does give you an idea of what I'm doing.
Using the fusiable web & ironing on the vines and flowers, it has smoothed out all those loose parts.
I want to wish you all a Very Happy New Year. With much Happiness, Good Health and Quilty Fun.
