While sorting a stack of things thrown on the floor of my quilt studio, look what I came across in its unironed glory. *grins* I stitched this more years ago than I care to admit. It has been sitting folded up with the fabric and cord ready to put a pillow together for the holidays. I stitched it up the minute I got home from a visit to my mother back in the US. I fell in love with this chart the minute I saw it and stitched it up in no time.
And that is the stage in which it stayed all these years. Why? I decided that piping would look really cute around the edge of this pillow but I wanted to use a quilt fabric from my stash. First I had to buy a cotton cord that worked easily for the piping. Okay, done. Still it sat and sat for years.....until today! I made the piping in about 15 minutes which makes me feel very silly for letting it sit unfinished for so long. It is now basted to the pillow front and I am going to start on the pieces for the back of the pillow. Stayed tuned for a very old and very deserving UFO finish this week as this should be a pillow cover in no time now...
Do you have any really old pieces that are sitting around that you stitched and just need to do the finishing? How about joining me this week by digging it out and doing the finishing, no matter what you choose to do with it? Come on, I know we all have these projects sitting around somewhere...right? It really feels good to know I will have one thing done again and also have a cute pillow to decorate with this coming holiday. And on top of all that...it takes surprisingly little time to finish it off too.
So what is your oldest UFO that just needs finishing??? Will you take a challenge and finish yours along with me???
