A UFO completed!
I can't believe that it took me so long to get some Machingers gloves. What a dream! I added a couple of borders to make this UFO top complete, basted it and now it is ready for some quilting action.
I did lazy 8 in the outside green border, in the ditch in the maroon border, and diagonal in the body of the quilt.
Lots of those pesky ends/knots to bury. What a chore!
Getting the binding on with care.
Inspecting for loose strings that might need to be buried.
Still working on the knots/strings!
And there you have it. A completed quilt. It measures 72x89.
Shortly after this picture was snapped, I took it in to wash the last of the blue marks out and give her that loved, crinkly feel! Much to my horror.....the reds ran! I had 3 color catchers in there. I have washed it again with color catchers, and she is a bloody mess! Any suggestions?
