For the last two days I've been quilting away on my Rehab quilt. I am linking up with Thearica at Pigtales and Quilts for her Weekend UFO Challenge. I'm so happy to be working on it and making some progress. I try NOT to think about how much more work I have to do on it. There is tons more. For this weekend I just picked a quadrant and quilted feather sprays. A reminder of the Before:
I know, you can't really see anything. Here's my paper stencils pinned to the quilt. I started with ten at a time.
My goal was to do 20 feather sprays this weekend. Here's what I did:
That's 25 done! It took me about 5 hours. And another hour to tear the paper off. Grrr.
Here's a close-up
I wish you could see better. When this quilt is finally done I think I'll have a photo shoot professionally done. There's such great quilting on there.
Some good progress! My FMQ is getting smoother and easier. I don't fight with the machine as much and feel more in control. I'm working better at quilting in the lines.
I hope you come play UFO's next week with us. Thearica will be picking prizes from everyone who links up and works on a UFO over the weekend. If enough people play you even have a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to her store, which carries quilting treasures such as buttons, charms, and extra-wide backings. There were only 2 participants this weekend, so there's a great chance you can win a prize! Plus, getting some work done on your UFO's is so worth it!
