I worked on this UFO yesterday. I hand quilted the coffee filter paper-pieced fans with perl cotton and then machine "free-motioned" the middle with my walking foot. Never again will I pull perl cotton through unwashed fabric by hand. Never.
I practiced free motion today in anticipation of working on the borders, so I did a couple of practice pieces.
I didn't know where my Kitten was. So I went looking.
She LOVES this basket!
Then she came back to my sewing room to give me the evil eye for not working on the oldest of my UFOs first. This pink number has been dragged around for nearly 30 years. I am going to keep hand quilting it, but I have not located pink hand-quilting thread. The pink I used before is so pale I don't think it will matter if I switch to white. The main thing is get it finished. Last year I declared at least 3 UFOs, but I lost the list and never finished any of them. This year I have one done, one nearly done and this "vintage" affliction. When I do bind it, I will give it to Kitten, so she will stop staring at me like that.
It unsettles me.
