Friday FOs or Nos

Today is a mix of small FOs and a NO. Here’s the NO: I am working on a baby quilt, well, Gigi is doing all the work, LOL! It’s just shy of a finish. Sisters from my Guild asked me to quilt it. So as soon as I finish the last border it’s off to them for the binding.

I did swirls and squiggles in the sky and outlined the stars and Moon. Then I did “tree lines” on the mountains. Or I tried. Not sure they look all that much like tree lines.

The panto in the border is a free one from Urban Elementz. It’s one of my favs. Since I get the Print Your Own version of their pantos I am able to change the size of the design to suit my project. For the border I reduced the image by 25% and it was perfect for the space. I wanted to mimic the stars in the sky.

The last one is another small FO. I made a Pop Up from the Fat Quarter Shop pattern. I have wanted to make one for a long time, just never picked up the pattern or spring. Finally I grabbed one while at Wabash Valley Fabrics. It went together easily enough, but I did hand tack the circles in place on the bottom so it would be easier to sew together. Worked like a charm. Now I have a waste basket for when I sew away from home. I plan to put the hanging tab under my machine base when sewing so it will hang down to my right. 

So, what have you got to show for your crafting week?
