This week’s WIP is actually a FO!! At the start of 2019 I listed 12 items I wanted to complete this year. Most of them were completed tops that needed quilting, but a few were still at the piecing stage and needed completion. This month’s UFO Challenge was one such project. October was cut and just needed to be pieced. I wasn’t sure I would get it to a completed stage, but I did!! Here is its journey.
Fabric pull and strip piecing
9 Patches with Flying Geese added to make stars
Alternating blocks of green and peach, sashing and borders on
Binding on, pieced back with hanging sleeve, straightline stitching in border
Ta-da! Peach Fuzz hanging on m y sewing room wall!
I bought the mushroom Fat Quarters at Always In Stitches during one of their FQ sales, love them!! I had the white on hand and thought I would use the checked fabric for the binding, but it was too big for the width I was using. The check would have been lost.
Once it was sandwiched I took a tip from another blogger, can’t remember now, and used my specialty stitches in the sashings to create a zig zag. I used my walking foot to outline the stars and did straight line quilting 5/8″ apart on the border, radiating the lines through the corners. Overall I am well pleased with my quilting approach. I have a few more specialty stitches I cold use on other minis in the future.
Ta-Da! October, which will now be named Peach Fuzz
