Finished a UFO!

Oh MY! I finally get to knock one of my UFO's (Actually a Ready to Quilt) off of my list! Just have to finish the binding and get the label on, which I am saving for Monday when I'm stuck at home& quiet after a little surgical procedure. I will post a picture when it is complete.

Meanwhile, I will post a couple of pics of some customer quilts that I did last week. The red and green is a close up of a Santa Redwork quilt for Susan while it is still on the machine. The borders and sashings are holly and spikey vine type feather. The background fill in the redwork areas is a different type of fill that are random "C" shapes.


The brightly colored one is Michelles and is a custom flame kind of all over meander. It's kind of a giant McTavishing type of quilting where you are doing cartoon hair or flames as the fill. Since the quilt is so geometric, this really softens the look. The varigated thread really pops on the navy background.

It is nice when we get to quilt one of our own tops!

Betty: I just read your profile and you and I started quilting about the same time and we started longarming about the same time!

Love the flame all over. It really does add softness to the blocks.
