Finished! - Sweet Star Wars
Finally. A completed quilt it is! Now I just have to show it off (you don't think I'd miss that step, do you?) and then get up the nerve to entrust the most laborious 80+ hours of my life to the US post office. Which could take a while. As a reminder, here's the front from 2 weeks ago (Click to enlarge):
On the back I added a pocket for hanging the quilt, and a label calling out the new owner. This label is FMQed rather than hand-stitched (and stay tuned for a tutorial in how I did it), but I am pretty happy with the results.
FMQ Planning - Trick or Treat
I am up to ten stencils now, and any second I will get brave enough to actually get to the laying out, tracing, and FMQing. Right now I have 20 spaces that need a feature design, but 12 ideas FOR a feature design, so the question is, double up or come up with 8 more? Doubling up is the less labor-intensive solution, but there are still some designs I think are cute that I want to include.
Not a lot of progress on this one, but I got it out of the moth balls and started hand-stitching the binding again. I want to get it out of the assembly line before Trick or Treat goes in!
