Completing some UFOs (unfinished objects)
I found some dates on my papers amongst the quilt stuff, it was 2004 the last time I worked on my quilts. I completed my first quilt that year, sent it off for quilting and my youngest son ran off with it when he moved out, lol. I completed one more quilt top, and nearly completed two others. The quilt that was completed and two others were all in plaids, the first one, nothing but blue plaids. I just love plaids. But I had a hard time finding any in the stores. So I had to find shirts at rummage sales and in our own closets, lol.
I decided to start with the top that was already all put together. Husband and I decided to just back it in flannel so we'd have a lighter weight quilt. Here I have it draped on the table, getting ready to pin it so I can quilt it.
Pinned and about half way done quilting.
I did this one in a diagonal pattern, rather than stitching in the ditch. I was going to do diamond shapes, diagonal one way then back the other way but we thought it looked fine after once across so I stopped there.
All the blocks to this one were done and the first three rows were sewn together. I had to finish putting it together before I could begin pinning the quilt. I finished this one up and gave it to my grandma for Christmas.
