Sew Many Projects, So Little Time

This is showcase of my projects in various stages.

Home Sweet Home Update

I finally finished this project and delivered it to Sarah who is very pleased with it.

After my first entry about this project I sandwiched it and proceeded with the quilting. I was so pleased with my FMQ that I neglected to check the back until was almost done. This is what it looked like:

 

 

I was really heart sick looking at this. If I were making this for myself it would have ended up as a true UFO or in the trash. It took over three hours to get all those stitches.

There was no way I was going to repeat this disaster so I decided to just outline the letters and do a border design. Here's the finished project:

 

Here's the happy recipient:

I love the quilt!  Who's going to see the stitches on the back once it's hanging on the wall anyway? I think it is adorable!

Oh, Kris, I had to do the same thing with the retreat leaf quilt we made for Marlene.  So frustrating!  Glad attempt number two worked.  What a cute quilt!
