As I've stated over and over again, I really wanted to finish some UFOs in 2011. Especially with a new baby on the way. With only 3 months to go, I'm ready to make some gorgeous baby stuff. (Like all of the gorgeous things Ashley has been making lately).
So here is UFO finish number 1. I'm actually quite proud of this one. It's big. It's huge. And I made it all by myself.
|A Quilt for my Sister.|
Although there are no designer fabrics in this one (I pieced the top before I became a fabric snob), I still love it. The pattern was originally from McCalls Quilting and called Roots. (sorry, it doesn't seem to be online anymore).
|Almost all of the quilt.|
I was going to call it "Nobody is Perfect" because it really, really, really isn't perfect. The quilting is crooked, the star points don't match, and there is a bit of a ripple in the border. But since it is for my sister, I figure she might take offense.
|Outdoor photo shoots are trickier than they appear. Especially with 3 feet of snow in the backyard.|
It is now raining here in Prince George, so I thought I'd share some photos of the weekend. It was gorgeous, warm and sunny and we had so much fun skating on our community outdoor rink.
