Ha....I'll show her....

Pat is off in the Carribean and before she left she posted a "kind of" challenge. FIU (finish it up) and show her when she gets back....
This is what we are supposed to do while she sips coconut drinks with umbrellas, eats, enjoys the pool and the sun....ok I can't stand it anymore....Oh, she gets to teach and meet new quilters also.

Well, I'm gonna show her. HA So far I have finished two UFO's.

First was my Lil Birdies quilt - (we are STILL waiting on Abigail to make an entrance)


Second is the wall hanging I finished today.





This is not what I had planned to work on today. I really wanted to sew today. I pulled out the fabric for the boys Christmas quilts, but realized that I neglected to buy the background light. oh. ok. I thought maybe a table runner. I had a pattern, but no background fabric. oh ok. So here was this wall hanging pinned to my wall in the sewing room. OK....I pulled it out and quilted it, bound it and it is now hanging in my dining room. Hopefully it won't stay there long as I have a huge quilt that is destined to live on that wall. It needs borders, quilting and bound....guess that will be next...

Pat's next challenge was SSN - Start Something New....YEA!! Tomorrow I will be at the Pik-Lin quilt guild. The program is Weaver Feaver and I have all my strips cut and packaged and ready to go....I have to get my sewing machine ready to go...bobbins wound, notions packed.

Happy Sewing.

The baby quilt is beautiful and I love the wallhanging. It must be nervewracking waiting for that baby...When TJ was born, I was hand quilting his quilt in the labor/delivery room. This time I will have it done!!
