Double UFO Finish!

Happy Friday! Today is certainly happy for us.  We just received the news that our home loan was finally approved.  We will be signing documents soon and then the house will be all ours! It’s a fixer-upper and will need lots of work, but we will finally have a Quilty Home of our own J

Today is UFO Busters Day!  Our host, Susan, is recouping today, so go over to send her some love. 

Do you see the word "Love" quilted in the middle?

I had a Double FINISH last weekend!  I finished quilting and binding a charity quilt for the local guild.  I turned it in on Tuesday.  Forgot to take pictures.  I’m such a bad blogger J  If you want to see it, check out this video.  It was a simple case of following the lines printed on the panel and free-motion quilting down the sashing.  I made a total mess of the machine-sewn binding.  I’m glad it’s done.  It took me a lot longer to quilt than I thought it would.  That is my second UFO finish for 2012.  Yay!

I also pulled out last year’s Valentine’s projects.  These weren’t on my UFO list, but they qualify!  I finished this table runner that was 90% done. I did this binding by hand and was quite impressed with myself.  I finally figured out how to join the two ends of my binding so it looks like one beautiful seam.  Instead of like a mangled mess of fabric. 

I will be taking this table runner to our new house this weekend.  It will be the perfect piece of decoration while we are prepping the interior for some major paint.  I hope you have a Quilty Weekend!


  1. congratss on the progress made in acquuiring your own home! have fun fixing!

  2. Congratulations on the loan finalization and great finishes! Lots of luck with the fixer! Our current home was also a fixer. There have been many times when I questioned the sanity of purchasing it, but 7 years later and most of the projects completed, it is worth it.

  3. Congratulations on your loan approval! How exciting!
