It’s Friday Night Sew In! It’s also UFO Weekend Party, and it all kicks off tonight! I’m super excited.
I pulled out my Love Quilt. This quilt is very special to me. I gave the original quilt to the Reverend who married us, and made another copy for us to keep. At the last moment, we decided to hang the quilt as a backdrop for our wedding ceremony. We’ve been married for almost a year now. I think it’s time to get our Love Quilt quilted up!
The first copy hanging behind us at our wedding.
Last night I picked a quilt design from the book 501 Quilting Designs. I traced the design onto freezer paper and made a basic stencil. I cut the away the outside and the inside of the stencil and traced a few blocks last night. I still need to figure out a way to trace the inside lines.
So that's my plan tonight: trace and quilt! I'll be impressed if I can get the whole quilt traced, but I'll be pushing to start the quilting!
I'm linking up with other UFO Busters at Blackberry Creek Home Arts. I don't have a bust this weekend, but I have a start, and that's just as important!
Woo-Hoo! Let's sew!
