Getting UFOs Finished on Retreat
Using the Pro-Stitcher, I finished this quilt top that my Mom had hand pieced and hand appliqued. With a bit of help from my friend Mary, I put Pro-Stitcher computerized designs in the borders and the corner blocks, then I practiced meandering around the applique and put curves in the inner borders. I'm totally counting it for my UFO Challenge finish for September. (I have this same quilt top that I made and that was on my list for this month's UFO, but I did my Mom's first.) The pattern is called Second Hand Rose designed by Jo Morton, and it's made with Jo Morton fabrics as well.
I also worked on swap blocks, a Round Robin Row, and a Guild Challenge pillow while Retreating. I'll show those later, when I finally get to unpacking all of my Retreat projects and snap a few pictures :)
Enjoy the day!
