What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Started 11/19/17 by MarciainMD; 539409 views.

I'm so proud of myself.  I'm remaking a very old Christmas tree skirt into a round table topper.  And I forced myself to not be lazy with the quilting.  I did ruler work and hooked feathers.  Came out pretty well.  Now I'm hand stitching facing down on the 20 points around the edge.  No way I was going to do regular binding.  The original tree skirt was made in 1984 for our 1st Christmas.   More pictures when complete.

Cris, just tried to email you and it bounced back.  Did I type it wrong?

I may have given it to you incorrectly.  The final part is  "really" 

Sorry for the confusion.

I'm still working my way through the billions of UFO's I've had lying about for way to long.  Currently have 7 in the garage ready for quilting (favorite machine for this having a spa day) and have 4 more being basted by friends in a group.  This one has been around since 2017 I think.  Just needs a border which is cut and ready. Size will end up 42 x 54.  Unless I put second border on to enlarge just a bit.  Most of my quilts go to charities for kids.

Nice. Looks like you did a good job on those points.

Thank you for the encouragement,

I use a lot of washable Glue Sticks and Elmers glue on point.  It helps keep things in place and no pins required.  

I also glue bindings after I sew it on the quilt. I turn to the front and press in place then glue down.. Makes those

mitered corners look really good.

Love your quit!  That's a lot of little triangles to put together.  Congratulations on attacking you UFOs.  It feels good to see projects go from the UFO pile to the completted pile.
