November UFO, #3 is done! It's the Glow Happy quilt designed by Happy Zombie using her Holiday Happy fabric. You can find the pattern here or on her blog. I bought the fabric for this quilt last year on Cyber Monday. Happy to have it done.
Well, almost done. I ran out of black floss for the last lantern. Going to Michael's this weekend and I will pick up more. Should take less than an hour to finish the strings. Everything else is complete though, so I am considering it finished.
Stipple quilted in the white sections and then each part of the lantern is quilted as well. I mainly outlined the pattern in the fabric. The gnomes I just went around to make them pop. On the snowflake fabric I free-motioned little snowflakes.
I love this quilt. For an hour while adding the black embroidery I thought of giving it away for Christmas but decided to keep it. Here it is hanging in the hallway outside our bedroom. I also put up some other Winter quilts this morning. The quilt at the top of the stairs is Primitive Joy designed by my sister. I got to test the pattern but you can buy the pattern, here.
This is a quilt I made last year (or maybe the year before?), and had put in my etsy shop but no one bought so I decided to keep it. It's hanging in our bedroom.
Some other finishes since Tuesday, include this scarf for a BIL. It is currently being blocked on the living room floor. 2 skeins of bulky yarn make for a great, quick gift.
Finished these 2 pillows. Also a Christmas gift.
Finished the Tree skirt for my SIL and her family. It's flannel and the snowmen are felt. I rarely ever work with these materials and I don't know what possessed me to do it now. I hope it works okay. If this one falls apart, I'll make you a better one, Michelle.
I tried to fuse the felt to the flannel. Didn't happen, but it did cause the red felt to bleed on one of the snowmen. I had a dry iron so not sure exactly how I did it - maybe kept the iron too long in one spot. The other 2 are fine.
Last post I mentioned that I had made a list of what I needed to finish and make before Christmas. Of the 31 things on the list, 8 are complete and 2 have been crossed off - not happening this year :) 8 more need to be finished and in the mail by next Saturday to reach their destination in time. 8 doesn't seem like a lot except the 8 include 2 quilts that need to be quilted and a cardigan that has only been cast on. Guess I need to get back to work.
