You may recall that last summer I finished a quilt called Happy Camper for a very special friend of ours.
I was planning to make 2 quilts...one for Ken and one for us
[our families love to camp together.]
After starting both quilts and almost finishing both flimsies, I didn't like them so out came the seam ripper and I took them all apart. I recut, added color, and changed the design and finished the one for Ken.
You can see it here.
The Happy Camper quilt for us never got redone.
UFO MFU [Masterpiece Under Fermentation] it became.
I recently had the notion to get it out and start sewing. Yep! it fermented just enough.
I now have a finished flimsy.
Don't have plans for the backing quite yet but it feel good to have it this far!
Yesterday, I got a little present from a friend of mine. She isn't a quilter but she knows I am! I like it :D
Each page of the year has another quilt block and directions on how to make it. FUN!
This morning block 9 for Block-A-Palooza went live. Here is my finished block called Lemonade Stand. You can check out other blocks on the flickr page.
Last Wednesday night, I went to my LQS for a demo [more about that another day] and I learned about this notion. Yay! It protects your iron from sticky residue when ironing adhesives. Beats cleaning sticky stuff from your iron! I used it for a small applique project and it worked great. It is made from a
no-melt plastic. Have you ever used this?
Tonight is knitting club. Taking a special friend...I'll tell you about her another time!
