I made some big changes in my life last year, so when 2009 rolled around, I set some major goals for myself. One of them is to complete at least 12 UFOs (that’s quilter lingo for UnFinished Objects). It will barely make a dent, but it will be a start. You have to eat the elephant one bite at a time.
I finished a little 12″ x 15″ wall quilt this week. It will be gifted to my cousin’s daughter in Nebraska for graduation. It’s called “Happy.”
- “Happy” is 12″ x 15″
I painted the fabric with Jacquard paints, then stamped over the paint, did some simple thread painting and beaded a bit. I referred back to Quiltmaker’s May/June ’08 issue for simple beading instructions. I also love C&T’s All-in-One Beading Buddy, which by the way is greatly on sale.
It feels great to move some projects into the finished pile. I am loving it!
