Finishing up UFOs……………

That have been lurking since….well, let’s just say a while! The first one is a little vintage piece I fmq on my Juki while in Texas (in March). You may check this post for details. I knew that the binding fabric was back in Minnesota and I really wasn’t sure how to finish this one, so yesterday I began to add the finishing touches…………….IMG_9190

It needed something more than just a plain binding, so I had a thought that resulted in this little addition.


IMG_9191I wasn’t exactly sure how this was going to work but……..



IMG_9205       The binding was added but it still lacked something………..IMG_9213   Out came some “bling”! And it started to come to life!!!!! IMG_9220IMG_9222         I think I can call this one a “finish”!

Next, another Juki project begun ???. Sorry, can’t resurrect the beginnings of this one (insert very unhappy face!!)…….IMG_9217IMG_9216                           Stitching the binding this afternoon……full reveal soon!!!!




Another vintage piece that will be gifted shortly……..IMG_9181

Notice the fading. This must have been a much loved/used piece! The raised embroidery/French knots were beautifully done. I used my HQ “Glide” foot to stitch around all the motifs and had absolutely no problem with the foot “grabbing” the embroidery……IMG_9184    Details on this one will have to wait til tomorrow. I have rambled long enough and must get to that binding!!! This is just the perfect quilting day…..dreary & rainy and quiet. Til next time, dear friends…………….

    I love the first piece…adding the bling was a great idea .

      That one was so lacking in pizazz I couldn’t believe it…..not at all how it looked in my head!!!! LOL! Those few pearls add so much (I show another today that’s really helped by such additions)………Hugs……….

    The bling really brings the old UFO to life. I would never have thought of adding pearls to quilting. Must put that in the ‘might try that’ pile.

      If your “must try” pile is like mine it’s in danger of avalanche!!!!! LOl!! I agree, it was really blah before!!! Thanks so much for your comment! Hugs……………
