F.O.s (finished objects) vs. U.F.O.s (unfinished objects)

This is my year! I'm determined to deal with some UFOs and to go no-buy for 2009 with the exception of backing and batting required to finish UFOs. This means more scrap quilts for 2009. (See Double Delight started on New Years Eve at the beginning of my blog).

In the meantime, I've decided to upload a few of the finished and almost finished quilts.

This first one is one I completed for my DH 2 years ago but never got it photographed. It's called Aunt Betty's Attic.

This next one is a UFO started at Quilting in the Trees, 2008 at Pearson College. The class was taught by Sharon Pederson. I started quilting the quilt but am unhappy with the quilting so it's now waiting for some reverse sewing and then I'll try again.... This one is called Crop Circles.

To Uganda With Love...

Our church sent a team to Uganda to help build a school. I couldn't go but decided that I could send something with the team to represent the love being sent from Canada and specifically our church family. Voila...this quilt was born. I did the blocks in one afternoon, pieced it in about two sittings, including the piano keys border and my friend Terry Banman (also the photographer for the trip) did the quilting. I finished the binding and the label the night before the team was leaving for Uganda. So, the quilt is called TO UGANDA WITH LOVE from the LOJ Quilters...
