Free Patterns to enhance your UFO piles.

 Have spent most days in my library doing massive moving of books, rearranging, and more organizing.  I finally have it ready for classes tomorrow!

needless to say, I have hardly seen.  But this afternoon I was able to finish the edges on 2 smaller quilts.  They are ready to go back to church tomorrow.  Yeah!  Out of my sewing room!  Two large ones to bind next!

I’ve been binding for days. I usually don’t mind binding, but dang I’m tired of it. I no sooner get one finished then here he comes again with another one. I don’t want to be ungrateful, but slow down buddy, they’ve sat there for years. A couple of more weeks won’t kill them!

I made one of the star quilts a number of years ago as a gift. Lot of work but love how scrappy they can be. Like the addition of pinwheel borders.

Lol, I know that feeling!  Binding and more binding!  My church charity group keeps me going with binding!

Aww.... Your quilt is sentimental ad adorable.

I have slowly eased back into working on the longarm. I was shocked the my log book said a month had passed since a 45 min session....and before that another month. This is an intricate design on a blue and orange mountain majesty. In the past three days I have made good progress. Almost done with the orange parts and need to figure out the blue. Photos on my Instagram page.

I love binding. I sew it to the back, then  press in place on the front, and GLUE.  Let it rest 24 hrs and can machine stitch around the entire quilt in a matter of moments.  I try to get 2-3 ready at once.

I've used this method for hand binding but sewed to the front and pressed to the back then glued.  Keeps all the binding in a nice place.

next one done.  Something about the embroidery I do not like.  Not sure what it is.  I thought the greenery was supposed to be ferns, but then ferns don't curl.  And what do they have to do with Christmas.  Hmm.  I might remove that curl on the right.

It might be a poinsettia arranged on a bed of evergreen boughs?

Anyway, beautiful job on the embroidery, which looks good now and will look good if you change it.
