Design Wall Monday (or Tuesday)

This is a quilt I am making for my Mom. I am hoping to be able to quilt it on my home machine. My only problem is my very small throat plate and I am hoping the quilt is not to big for it.

January UFO Challenge

The stack of lonely blocks.
 Judy with Patchwork times is doing a UFO challenge (UnFinished Object). She picks a number and then that month you have to do the project you had listed with that number. This month I was very good at finishing my project, just not so good about blogging it at the beginning of February. My project was a bunch of blocks from 2007 a group of online friends and I did. I was not much of a quilter back then and so I set them aside having no idea what to do with them.

I was able to quickly get the blocks set and quilted it on my home machine.

The finished product
We ended up hanging above our TV. My husband even painted the wall behind it so that it would not blend in. Of course he wanted it turned on its side, so the words I quilted into it (love, hope, faith, friendship) are all on their sides. What can you do?

Design Wall Monday: A round robin

Our Quilt guild is doing a round robin. I have never done one before, but I am very excited for it. I love bright colors, so this is my middle.

On another not, a few days ago, I was sewing along when my machine froze up. I was a bit panicky, but was able to ask around and figured out my problem and was elated when I was able to fix my machine. It's now purring like a kitty.
