Yesterday I finally started quilting on a 5-year old UFO. Let me explain.
In 2001, I participated in a BOM at a local quilt shop. It was called "Snowman Collector". This link is just to the picture and pattern. The quilt shop that I went to has long ago closed it's doors. :(
Anyway, I got the top done, sandwiched and pin basted. And then it sat and aged. I did not have the quilting skills needed at that time to quilt this. I had a vision of what I wanted but neither the money to pay a long-arm quilter or the skills to do it myself. Well, after all the quilting I've been doing lately, I figured it was time. So yesterday, I laid down all the straight lines in the quilt. Now I can start the wind and snow and mittens and trees. What fun! I'll show you when I get it done.
