The 'finish' line!

Don't you love a 'finish'?

This was a bit of bonus this weekend.

I had intentions of sewing a border around my latest (and last) Embroider-Bee patch.

(But more of that in a later post.)

As that little task only took an hour of a wet and windy Melbourne morning, I turned my thoughts to 

"What now?"

I made this quilt top many, many years ago.

(Colors look a little washed out!)

Well, at least 10!

So I thought I would have a go at quilting it!

Most of the fabric in this quilt is not even in my stash anymore!

And the style is a little dated,  I expect!

And goodness knows which magazine the pattern was from?

  Thank goodness for this little feature of my Juki!

As you can see, when it comes to machine quilting, I am more of a tortoise than a hare!

And the quilting is far from perfect!

But when there is a UFO lurking there, whispering to you to 'finish me, finish me".

 A 'finish' is much better than a UFO any day, don't you think!

Have a happy day!



  1. There is a true beauty to FINISHED that is hard to describe. Dated or not (and I think not) the work is very nice. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow, that quilt looks like it has a touch of everything about a happy, welcoming country home. How much time do you think you've spent on it?


Please leave a message! I love your feedback!
