UFO Progess

I have been making some progress with my UFO's.
I finished quilting my Split Nine Patch, so that will be in the Quilt Show in April.

This is what happens when you don't see a safety pin needs to be removed before quilting.
I sewed right over it. Amazingly I didn't break the needle!

Here it is on the washing line, sigh... the lawns need doing again :-(

I did the Magic Binding thing again, I've fallen in love with it. 
This time I used a low contrast peeper, it is actually a little teal compared to the outer binding, but is not really showing up in this photo. Instead of sewing it down with a straight stitch I used a small button hole.

Next I got out my Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt top. I decided to add another 2 rows, (it was 6 x 6 blocks). Now it's 6 x 8. 
Here's Oscar putting his seal of approval on it as I was making the extra blocks. All those seams are much more comfy than the carpet.
  
Deciding if needs a border or not is the next step. It really needs an iron too.

Lastly I have had another Birthday
(this is what happens when your birthday is close to Valentines Day :-)

 PS No Show n Tell photos from our last meeting sorry. Camera batteries died.

  1. Love love love your nine patch. That quilt is on my to do list.

    I think your trip around the world looks swell without borders. IMHO
