It is finished -- first finish for 2006. I consider this an ufo -- even though I only started it a couple of months ago -- anything I start is an ufo until it's finished! I'm not real happy with the quilting -- but this is a learning process for me. I have been quilting for many years now, but have always hated machine quilting, because I could not master it and would not take the time to do so. Now, I am working on learning -- so my quilting is beginner-level! I'm concentrating on learning to make nice even stitches -- no toe grabbers and no stitches so tight it looks like a long line! One mistake on this quilt was using a variegated thread on top -- didn't like the colors of the thread through the white patches. I am pleased with the back though! Stitching looks nice and I used one dark red thread for the back. Lost the original label, so made a new one quickly -- nothing fancy, obviously.
So, this is my first finished ufo for 2006; one down and 11 to go (and hopefully more!).
