September OMG 2017 Goal Update

My September UFO goal  was to complete the borders for my friendship row by row quilt.

Friendship Row by Row

Lots of four patches sewn into border rows!

Four patch sashings and borders are bringing the rows together!

And I’ve got a flimsy!

I pieced the backing from fabric found in the stash instead of going shopping.

But I forgot that I had one more strip to include!  So I had to re-piece the backing!  Ha, ha!

I am so happy that I completed the goal of getting this project sewn into a flimsy!

I purchased a Grace frame, so this quilt will be my very first project that I have quilted on a frame.  

I know…I should have loaded a practice piece (or 10), but I am just going for it.  And what a learning curve it is!  None of my straight line quilting is straight!  Ha, ha!  I don’t really mind at all.  This row by row is so full of memories for me, and I am adding to the memories.

  6. That looks amazing. You are really brave making an actual quilt the first thing you quilt on your frame!

  7. That’s a great quilt and your quilting looks fantastic! I went for it too when I got my longarm – didn’t do great on my first dozen or so tops, but I found it better to practice on actual quilts!
