Dang...found another sneaky UFO

Gee a hidden UFO?
Good excuse for this one.. I knew it would need custom quilting, and I didn't want to do it cause its a biggee.
My note in the book says I started it  july 2007! Opps....
So, now that I have  longarm....guess I'd better get going...

Well me thinks the biggest issue with UFOs are...You can't remember WHAT you intended to do with the project! Gah, I knew, but was ignoring this UFO. Why? ummm, maybe its the 500 or so half square triangles, ya think?
I think I will try to make it smaller for a wall hanging, a med. size one...Ok, off to iron a few hundred u know whats!

Baby quilt experiment

Ok, so I waqnted to experiment with a fluffy batt and fleece. It turned out ok. I washed it and it still looks good. Note to self- fluffy batt & fleece makes the longarm bog down a bit. Bessie did power through it, but panto-ing was a bit dense.

Another whew!

Well, I dunno what happened, started out ok, then not lined up...gah...It looks good overall tho...


Well I did pretty good with this one. I feel like I'm still a bit off, not sure if the lazer lite moved or what.

I've got sumthin to say...

Ok, so here is a pic of a quilt for my van... Made it about 5yrs. ago when I 1st bought a van, just found it so this is for sure a UFO!
I practiced a pantograph on it, and experimented using fleece on the back.
What I have to say is,  we stress too much about the actual machine quilting.  Deciding on thread, pattern, batt etc when after its washed, it goes flat anywho!  lol..

Also been makin blankies for Sarah's bambino
