Woo-Hoo! Let's Sew!

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!


  1. i absolutely love your heart quilts. Love pink and red and hearts. So you know I'm loving that.

  2. I spend a lot of time on my design floor, too. Usually crawling around on my knees and elbows while basting.

  3. just popped over from Heidi's, thats a fabulous quilt, my back cant cope with crawling around for too long so i use the dining room table! It also stops the dog lying all over it while im trying to work on it!


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know you were here! Comments mean so much to me. Have a fantastic day!
