    Fence Rail Stars #7 is DONE

    I have been working on my UFO list. So far I have done #2,3,4 and now 7 this year. The top was done last year, and waiting for quilting. Friday, i sandwiched it and within 4 hours it was done. I attached the binding and sewed it by hand while watching some tv.

    It is a jelly roll of Northcott Stonehenge Gradations, the stars are a Laurel Burch fabric. I quilted this one on my DSM with mostly stitch in ditch with walking foot. I used a yellow thread on the front and back to echo the stars and make it pop. I did FMQ the border on my Sweet 16. The batting is eucalyptus with scrim. Love working with this. It measures 62 x 80, and a M* pattern/tutorial.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I've never heard of eucalyptus batting - so interesting. Your quilt is really pretty with the blues and the stars. Congrats on an awesome finish!

    About this Group

    Do you have some UFOs (UnFinished Objects) that you want to finish? Are you having a hard time choosing what to finish next, or are you just not feeling motivated? Do you have some specific goals you want to complete in 2018? This group is for you! We have a fun way to get those projects done in 2018.

    Here is how it works.

    First, you create a list, numbered from 1 - 12, of 1) things you want to finish; 2) OR projects you want to do; 3) OR a combination of 1 and 2. Then, you post your list to this group. (You can edit and change your list at any time.)

    Every month, this group will publish a random number between 1 - 12. We will each work on that number from our list. If you prefer to do your list in a particular order, you can certainly do it that way as well. When you have finished your project, please post a picture here as well.

    We’re here to support each other. It’s amazing how knowing what project to tackle helps to motivate us to finish what we start.
