I have completed my second Finish-A-Long (FAL) for the year. It is the January Stitchery piece by Jenny of Elefantz.
I did my stitchery quilt slightly different than Jenny did. Instead of adding binding on the outside, I added a 1/2 inch boarder, then placed the back and batting right sides together with the top. I left and opening at the bottom, turned, then edge stitched around the entire piece. I want to use up some of my scraps in this project. I will probably free motion quilt a small filler around the embroidery for February. If I like it, I may change this one, too.
I was able to get this one marked off my list.
On a different note, my quilty friends and I got together today in a local hotel lobby to work on our Blocks on the Go, for Quilts that Grow.
I was a little uncomfortable to start with, but it worked out okay and we are planning to meet there again next month. The hotel is connected to a conference center, so there were lots of seating areas.
Thanks for stopping by.
