NewFO

My NewFO for March was this little wall hanging that I began at a quilting class on the 16th.  I've posted more details about it here.  

It has joined the ranks of many another quilting project - that being the status of UFO.  Before putting it away though, it will be worked on some more over the next few weeks.  The tree will be outlined in a zig-zagged satin stitch, and of course all the blocks will be sewn together along with the center medallion.  The tree outline will be in green and I thought I had green thread but it isn't out in the open.  I may have it tucked away with another UFO project that I had begun to quilt and didn't finish.

Here is the current progress picture, and I'm linking this up at Cat Patches.

Blocks and medallion pinned to design wall. 
I need to read and find out at what point to remove all that paper in the boy, girl and star blocks, whether before sewing them together, or after.  Using the fusible web to adhere the tree to the background was a piece of cake!  I will also have to select a backing and binding.  I would love to find a candy cane stripe for the binding, or both.

  4. You've done a super job with this project Lee! I like your idea of the candy cane stripe for the binding - perfect! Don't put this one away and forget about it - it needs to be finished and out where you can see how much you've accomplished in a short time! Finished projects are great motivators!

  5. This is really adorable! (Hey, if your boy and girl blocks are all finished and trimmed to size, I find it *much* easier to join them together AFTER taking the paper off.)

  6. Candycane strip will be cute as a button! I really like your Christmas tree! Keep working on it so you can put it out for Christmas instead of hiding in with your other UFOs.
