Weekend UFO Quilt-A-Thon

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!


  1. Oh wow! Your quilt is gorgeous! And by clicking on the photo you can see it even closer to see what a fantastic job you did on those feather sprays!

    Thanks for linking up and playing... and I hope some of your friends join in the fun!

  2. Good going! Almost makes me wish for a UFO!

  3. Great work on the feathers... you'll be done in no time! Love that quilt....

  4. Good job on your UFO's this weekend!! I made some progress on a couple of UFO's myself! Since you are the only one who participated (the other lady never worked on hers)... you win the prize!!

    I hope you will do me a favor and talk it up this week so we might get more to play next weekend. Thanks so much for playing!
