February UFO

UnFinished Objects: UFOs

My goal this year is to get rid of some of the 20+ years of UFOs in my sewing room. It would be fine if they would stay quietly in my sewing room, but the problem with UFOs is that they can get in your head. At least they get into my head and they become a huge distraction.

So I have an assassination mission.

I’m going to kill them off one by one. Done is better than perfect! This my new motto for 2013.

All my UFOs are at least 10 yrs old!

Newer than that I call them WIPs (works in progress)

So, this is my February UFO. I haven’t posted the January one yet, but I will soon.

See my free motion quilting skills?

And a close up…


a closeup of the flowers and quilting.

In case you are curious these flowers are all just raw edged applique. I used Steam-A-Seam 2 and fused it to fabric, cut it up into tiny shapes and arranged them exactly where I wanted them and then fused them permanently in place.

Such a little quilt. Why did it take me so long to finish it?

Learning Free Motion Quilting has been a huge push to finish things.

That’s all for today. Have a wonderful Quilty Day!

    I like calling recent UFOs “Works In Progress” – I also like thinking that finished is better than perfect.


Tell me what you think.
