Binding a UFO Project

 Here's another UFO project I pulled from the top shelf during my slow time.  All this quilt needs is some binding, a hanging sleeve, and a label.  I had even sewed down part of the binding before previously putting it away.

 I tried out my new Tim Holtz snips I received in my last Quilty Box!  They are super sharp and fun to use.

Disclaimer:  These scissors were given to me by Quilty Box at no cost to me.  Thank you, Quilty Box

 Whilst sewing the binding down, I noticed this pretty quilting motif on the back of my quilt.  It's like a swirly flower.  I like the variegated thread I used for the quilting, too.  I wonder what it was?  I don't seem to have a record of what I used to make this quilt.

 Gotta have the Clover Wonder Clips for hand stitching the binding down.  It saves me from hand fatigue.

 Here you can see part of the quilt top.  It looks like I had fun trying out some new quilting motifs on this project.

 Another view of the quilting on the back side.  The back of this quilt is pieced scraps, some leftover fabric from the quilt top, and some that coordinates.  I'll show the whole quilt, front and back, when I'm finished.

 More binding.  

And more ~ stitch, stitch, stitch!  The binding is made from a cute pansy print fabric.
My schedule has filled up, but I hope I can finish this quilt off soon and not put it back up on the shelf.  It would be nice to put a dent in the UFO's.  Do you have many unfinished projects?  What do you need to work on?  Leave a comment below.

  1. I sure do have UFOs and since a new year is approaching, a new list will be coming soon. I try to do one a month but I may up for a month or two and see how that works, just to make a little more progress. It will be lovely quilt wherever yours lands. Hoping you get it done before the schedule interrupts.
