Goal Accomplished

I signed up for One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts and I'm happy to say that I finished a small quilt.  This top was pieced several years ago and put aside because I wasn't confident about quilting it.  I unearthed it when setting up my new sewing room last summer and decided it needed to be finished and donated.  I recently took a class on quilting with rulers on a home machine and thought I might be able to use that knowledge on this project.  I discovered that I'm going to have to put in a LOT more practice with the rulers so I quilted this by (mostly) stitching in the ditch.  It was shown at the January meeting of my quilt guild and given to our Pieces of Love project for donation to a charity that needs baby quilts.


Now to chose another project for February!

  3. I'd love to know more about your experiences with a ruler on a home machine! It sounds very intriguing to me. I'm going to buy a ruler foot very soon I think.

  4. How nice to uncover a UFO and make a nice learning experience out of it and then donate it to a good cause. A win win situation ! Cheers Mel

  5. Looks wonderful! So great to pull out an old finish and quilt it up! Quilting with rulers sounds really hard to me. Hope you figure it out.
