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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. 🙂

    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.

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