As part of the UFO Bust I'm participating in (click on the button along the right hand side of my blog if you would like to read about it or play along), we are suppose to report on our progress on Fridays. So here is my report...
The label is going on my Funky Santa quilt!!
This is how I put my labels on when I don't piece them into the back. I sew two sides into the binding by machine and then hand stitch the other two sides down. Less hand applique this way! After I get the label all the way on, I just have a little more than one side of binding left to hand sew to the back. The sleeve is made, but won't get attached until I have done all the embellishing I want to do along the top of the quilt. Ahhh! Feels good to be so close to my first finish of the year.
In other news, while my afternoon got completely hijacked by work, when I got around to checking the mail there was a nice package waiting for me.
I ordered this fat quarter bundle of green Kona solids from Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works as part of my birthday spending spree. Isn't it lovely! I think my solids stash is now complete, for the moment anyway.
