Well, better late than never, eh?!?!
My March UFO is now a finished quilt! You can read more details about this project here if you missed that post. The quilt and I had a little disagreement mid-month about how it would be quilted and the bossy quilt won. I'm sure you all could have guessed that it would!
Here is my "helper" Miss Molly who loves to snuggle up in quilts and just had to get in on the photo session. She is now 13 years old and the sweetest (and most spoiled) dog to ever live!
I enjoyed quilting my free motion quilt challenge last month, which gave me the idea to do a "loops and stars" design on the white background areas of this quilt.
(The photos of the block quilting designs that I did earlier in the month can be found on this post here.)
In the borders I quilted one of my favorite hooked feather designs from Sally Terry's book. I went around the whole quilt making feathers in gold thread on the inside border, and then went around again quilting with blue thread for the outside blue stars border. I did some fun little hooked feathers in the blocks around the corners. This is a fast design which allows you to quilt an entire border easily in less than an hour.
And here is the finished quilt hanging in the spring sunshine on the clothesline.
Ooops...do you see the shadows of the tree and my hands in the photo?!?! Photographer incompetence!
Oh well, it's a finished quilt and that's all that matters!! To see other UFO's that were finished in March, hop over to Patchwork Times.
