You may have read a couple of weeks ago that I decided to join the 2016 Finish-A-Long in hopes of finishing up some of my UFOs (Un-Finished Objects). I am happy to announce that after less than 2 weeks in, I am finished with the first one.
I spent several evenings hand-quilting this baby quilt. It was a panel, so there was not any piecing that needed to be done unfortunately. I really enjoy piecing. I very much dislike hand quilting though, but decided I could suffer through it for a small quilt. I’m just not very good at it. I probably should do it more often so I get better at it… Umm, Nah!
The panel has very sweet bunnies, similar to Beatrix Potter. I just love little bunnies.
I am a member of the Smokey Mountain Quilters Guild and made this quilt for them. They donate baby quilts to several different charities – Angel Hospital Hospice, Kid’s Place and Head Start. This is the 3rd quilt I’ve made since last summer for these outreach programs. It is backed with flannel so it will make a soft quilt for a little one.
Here is a picture of one of the quilts also for our guild that I finished last fall.
I love the flowers I FMQ onto this quilt. I can tell that, with practice, my FMQ skills are improving.
