## May’s UFO Finished

One thing I like about this challenge is that it keeps me from setting my quilts aside to finish something for someone else. Last year I had a goal of finishing 12 UFO’s but fell short because I put off my quilts.

Tonight I finished the binding on this HeartStrings quilt of mine which is my UFO for this month.

As I had it laying on the floor to trim – I couldn’t resist snapping another photo of the quilting. I love all the texture.

This is great texture. I know it’s Dwirling, ( yep, have the DVD and books)
and you do it like you invented it! Tell me– the swirls, do you alternate them, or several per row– they seem so well-spaced out. I’ve got a string quilt coming that I need to quilt for the Chemo unit at the hospital– so just wondering about how you space the swirls.

• Funny, I’m just putting the last stitches in my May UFO! I haven’t done too good on the Numbered UFO’s but have finished more quilts this year than I had around this time last year. I like the swirls!

• Anna:

Great Quilt Mary,

I am thinking that this would be a great project for our guild doantion quilts. We do a challenge quilt for the Hospitality House for the cancer patients every year and this would be a good option for us to do.

• Penny:

The texture is lovely. Being an advanced beginner, I am continually amazed how the quilting transforms a quilt. I do so hope one day to be able to quilt like you and not just straight walking foot quilting.

• debrak:

I have to smile because I was going to mention your masterful dwirling as well. Beautiful quilt. A sea of color.

• Love this beautiful Heart Strings quilt. The blue colors, especially the lighter blues have a bit of an icy blue neon effect. Reds have a neon effect, too. Is it the lighting or simply how these colors play together in the heart patterns on this quilt? Quilting swirls very nice.

• Pat:

Beautiful quilt Mary! Thanks for showing a close-up of the quilting. I have a donation quilt loaded right now and white-board confident enough to give the dwirling a try.

Happy to hear you’ve been able to find a way to get your own quilts on the priority list too.

• Sue:

I, too, love the texture. That’s the thing I hate about hanging quilts high…you don’t get to see (or feel!) the quilting.

• This quilt is beautiful and inspiring! Nice work!

• Mmmmmm- lovely cool colors. It’s in the 90′s here today, looking at your quilt cooled me off a bit. Wonderful quilting design.

• Such a colorful and happy quilt – and the quilting is wonderful.

• char:

Beautiful, love the quilting.
