A UFO Finish!

I decided to really stick by my guns and finish that July 4th table runner that has been pinned since FOREVER!  This spring was so busy that I did not have time to sew or post, so I am going to work on time management and try to do both!

So I am putting up the picture of the finished project.  I had to dust off my FMQ skills to do the stars in the outer border.  It turned out great!  Took about a day and a half to do the quilting, but worth the wait.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think!  

Have a great week!

Need to post more often!

Well, I apologize for not posting on this blog since spring, but the end of the school year brought many surprises!  After posting in March, I said yes to taking a role in our school fundraiser, "Nunsense".  I haven't done theater in years, and I had so much fun with a great group of ladies.  The show was a success, raising funds for scholarships.

Needless to say, I did not have much time to work on projects at home.  So, now I am teaching a 3 week summer school class at the local university, but I vow to do some UFO busting!  My current UFO is a 4th of July tablerunner.  It has been pin-basted for almost 2 years!  So-I am working on that this week and hope to quilt and bind it this weekend!

I am going to the NQA show in Columbus, OH with friends on Friday.  We aren't taking in any classes, just wandering the exhibits and trade show, but I am dying to see the Mariner's Compass exhibit!  I will take pictures if I am allowed.  So-off to be productive!  Feel free to comment and let me know if you finish any UFOs!
