UFO Challenge 2012 Update

After the Trick or Treaters stopped ringing the doorbell, I put on my jammies and headed to the sewing machine for some down-to-the-deadline quilting on the October UFO Challenge pick, my Yuletide Blessings quilt.  Surprisingly, it only took about two and a half hours to complete.

 Of course, I did make it easy on myself by using the walking foot and my favorite wavy line stitch, this time on the diagonal for a diamond pattern.





This throw quilt will be very soft and cuddly during those cold winter evenings.  The binding will go on later today--I was just too tired last night!  Judy pulled #9 for the November UFO pick.  I had already swapped out that number for another project so will swap again for #11, which is a 6" swap block project in a Christmas theme.

My throw sized layout includes cornerstones and sashing and I'll back it with this text Christmas print purchased some years ago.  There are enough leftover blocks for two other projects, one of which is destined for sale the craft shoppe.  Now for a stash hunt for enough white background for the sashing...

Beautiful! I love the wavy line stitch.

The diagonal wavy line was all that quilt needed--and it will be soft and cuddly now, because it wasn't "quilted to cardboard." : )

That quilting is so nice! It compliments the quilt beautifully! Nice way to spend Halloween after the treats have been given out :-)

How did you get your wavy stitch to look so uniform? I love it.
