This weekend a dear teacher friend opened up the school for a small group of us to work on quilting or scrapbooking. I was able to finish a project I started back in high school... 7 or 8 years ago... Back when our local Walmart sold fabric...
The only part I had finished was the center of the quilt. I didn't follow a pattern, I just started slicing strips of fabric and making them all uneven and funky. Then I squared off the rows and this past weekend I finally added the border, free motion quilted it and finished machine sewing on the binding!
I did a blanket stitch on the binding :) LOVE!
I cut out pieces of freezer paper in the shape of butterflies and free motioned around them... its fun!

This is the back of the quilt, I used the same fabric for the binding, boarder and back :)
Earlier this week I also finished one of my first quilts that wasn't a rag time quilt. Its the Turning Twenty pattern. Its all done in soft fabrics. I had fun doing this one about 5 years ago,... I just needed to stitch in the ditch a couple more rows and bind it and it was done. So I am not sure why I took so long to finish the quilt but it is now DONE!! YAY! That is 2 unfinished projects done and one left to go!!! YAY to checking off things for my Sew Resolution!!
This is almost a double quilt... its fairly large

So I have a ragtime quilt I started about 6 or so years ago and I am excited that the ragtime quilt is my last unfinished quilt that I have in my stash, other than the new ones I just started this year! YAY!!
Thanks for stopping by!
