A UFO Finish

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I love to put on binding. That was my goal last night.

I did it! All machine binded. A finish!


And for the back.


I used all DS fabrics on the back(except for the solid). I had one square done which I put on the back. It was my least favorite square. I still have to wash it to get the crinkly luvin' look! Maybe after I catch up on some laundry.

Today, I took a much needed break. Me, my friend Sundy, and her mom Jerry headed up to the Terre Haute, IN area to check out the Covered Bridge Festival. The scenic drive was amazing. I should have tried to take pictures of all of the beautiful trees turning colors, but we weren't stopping on those county roads.


We had a lot of fun and a lot of girl chit-chat on the way there and back;)

I'm linking up with Leah Day UFO Sunday on the Free Motion Quilting Project.

  7. Hooray on the finish! I remember going to see the covered bridges when I was a kid. I have a pic from way back of my parents and me next to a covered bridge and information marker on it, but it might have been taken in Michigan not Indiana. Thanks for reminding me of it, and the associated memories of summer one-week vacations at a cabin on a lake in Michigan.

  8. It looks beautiful, and I love the backing and binding! It must feel great to have it finished! What sort of foot is that on your machine while you work?...I don't recognize it.

    1. Thanks!It's the Janome 1600 series Convertible Free Motion Quilting Foot Set. I have a Janome 1600 P-QC machine. It was quite pricey at 50.00 but I love it.

    2. Oh wait! the foot on the machine is just the standard 1/4 in foot but in that pic, it was actually under the quilt, as I hadn't quite put the quilt under the foot yet! haha...that's why it looked funny. :S
