This past week I’ve been digging deep into my project pile to finally finish a couple UFO’s (That’s “Unfinished Object” in quiltin’ speak. Most quilters have about 5 or so half finished projects laying around).
This is my “Geese in the Forest” Quilt. It was a BOM (Block of the month) by Twiddletails.
I used vintage bed sheets and Kona white. Now I’ve begun to hand-quilt this beast (It’s 61″ x 61″, so that’s big for me).
I’m not super happy with the one whole line I’ve sewn so far, so I think I’m going to switch over to Perle Thread for a slightly chunkier look. I am experienced at hand finishing clothing, but I can’t seem to get the hang of hand-quilting. I always feel like my stitches are too big and the stitches on the back are super teeny. If anyone has any tips, it would be greatly appreciated!

My second WIP is a bee quilt. I had the ladies from Vintage Sheet Quilting Bee make me a block from the first issue of Fat Quarterly. The tutorial was by Aneela Hoey.
I’m now working on sewing double borders to each block and sashing. I’m really excited about the striped borders floating in Robert Kaufman Linen.
I’m linking this up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Thanks for stopping by!
