Mid Month UFO Update - Plaid Beauty

With all of my exciting projects on the go, I can hardly tear myself away to work on an old project. But my goal for July is to finish this UFO, so I must force myself to make time for it.
I have finished the pin basting and have prepared the binding, so the next step is to get going on the quilting!
First I have to crank up the air conditioning because it's hot in my sewing room and I work up a sweat when quilting a large quilt on my regular domestic sewing machine.
Off I go... I have two weeks left to finish this quilt and meet my goal.

Plaids make wonderful quilts. I like the block pattern that you chose. Hope you meet your goal.

I just love a plaid and homespun quilt - it just says Home Sweet Home and come cuddle with me.

You can do it!!!

Nancy Magee said...

I would never think to make a plaid quilt, but I love yours. The colors blend well and the pattern is simple enough to let the beauty of the plaids show through. I may have to make one now that yours has inspired me. Good job!
