1/12 and more UFOs

12 for 2012

I finished my 1/12 last night. We had a storm and a power out so I spent that time hand sewing the back of the binding. For light I had an old camping light I didn’t want to use  a candle in case I’d burn it. It was weirdly a lot of fun in a old fashion kind of way, Sitting in a corner and binding a quilted wall-hanging . The quilting is really just a basic stitch in the ditch. I think that is the best way for this pattern I just enhanced the images by stitching around them and again the frame around them.

There really wasn’t much that I had left to do on the January UFO. Just the binding and Quilting so before and after pics are kind of silly. I’ll just show my finished project hanging on the wall (were ‘Sue’s got mail’ hung during Christmas)

(most of the patterns are designed by Cat Magraith and can be found over on Fandom In Stitches the border pattern is by Jennifer Ofenstein and is found on her site Sewhooked)

Of course since I’ve finished this project It’s a must to start at least 3 new ones (this month) lol. I’m currently in the middle of making Jennifer’s ‘A Little Haunted’ Wall-hanging. I’m making a Hunger Games quilt and am working on a wall-hanging/table-runner pattern for my etsy shop. I’m really loving that one it’s going to be amazing!

And then I’ve been thinking 2/12 witch is my 1/3 PODBOW. As with 1/12  (that’s a lot of numbers)I only have to quilt and bind but I’m a little scared that I’ll ruin it because I’ve never quilted anything that big before. But the best thing is just to start and hope for the best. I found this old Harry Potter quilt cover set (that’s what it’s called on the label) probably from 2001 in a garage sale. That I’m going to use for the backing. I’ve been taking it apart today and it looks like I’ll need to add a little fabric to the sides to make it work but otherwise I’ll just need to put it together with the batting and start. Well and that I‘ll need to move my sewing stuff into the living-room while quilting it. My sewing room’s 6² feet just aren’t going to work with something that big.

Well I’m off to work on some of my UFOs

Happy sewing
