I am so pleased to say I have a finish top for this new year.
I'm going to take that as a good sign.
I can cross of my first UFO, #31.
It is a Lori Smith pattern called Lily's Garden.
It is made using 30's reproduction fabric. I did machine appliqueing, using Ricky Tim's applique paper.
The quilt is a wall hanging or crib size, 45" x 45".
Used Kona Cotton in Snow for the background.
I haven't yet decided if I will attempt to machine quilt myself or have a pro quilt it.
One of my goals is to be good enough at quilting on my domestic machine. I have tried it on a couple of small projects but I really do need to get quite a few more hours under my belt to feel comfortable at it. Right now I feel like hands don't know which way to go half the time or to have my feet to go in sync with my hands.
Practice, Practice, Practice.
Isn't that what it takes!
