Yesterday afternoon, I went over to my friend, Jackie's house. She has a long arm quilting frame and she has the same little mystery quilt on her frame right now that is what I call my UFO 3. We are in the same small group and did the mystery together. She had hers put together for awhile now but she is now getting around to quilting it. Ours look pretty much the same except for a few blocks are in different places. She also put a piano key border around hers but I think hers was like a 4 1/2" border. She is custom quilting hers and it is looking BEAUTIFUL!!! She does very nice work and I'm really looking forward to seeing her little quilt done. Oh, I left her house and just wanted to go home and put mine on the frame and just quilt away!!! I wanted to but didn't. I will do it but I want to practice on some other little quilts before I do this one. It will get done but not until I'm a little more comfortable.
I did go home and was able to make two more blocks to my 30's sampler but I didn't take a picture of them. I'll take a pic tonight.
I see where Nancy, at Patchwork Penguin picked the UFO number already for next month so I'll get my UFO 8 out and try to see where I stopped on it....I know exactly why I stopped working on this one. It didn't fit together like it should but it wasn't because I had made any mistakes in the cutting or sewing. The pattern was drafted by someone and it didn't fit together right. I'm just going to put this one together the best I can and go on....It's a small quilt and it shouldn't take too long, I hope...I'll show you the progress later on this one. I'm going to go now and see what's going on with my blogging buddies and Design Wall Monday. Have a happy day and drive careful. We have bad weather coming in tomorrow and maybe I'll get to stay home and snuggle up to my sewing machine!!! Stay warm....
