Here is what's on my
my UFO goal for November
and inspired by Jo's Country Junctions
I dug into my half assembled quilt top pile
and pulled out Bonnie Hunter's Orca Bay:
partially sewn top with
partially sewn blocks
and missing bits & pieces in between.
The red carpet underneath is a bit deceiving, but
15 red string units are missing and about
74 trouble units.
My goal is to complete the top
as it is shown as pre-layout above
(the final border will be a later decision...).
And here is my trouble unit:
It's a love-hate story for me:
I love the quilt,
but for the life of me
this trouble unit
is just about impossible for me to sew:
It bunches up, shrinks, curls,
gets stuck in the feed dogs
and everything else that could go wrong.
Not to mention a lot of choice words are flying
in just about any language I know ;-)
So any hints and tips you may have,
please help and let me know!
Yep, I know:
my HST is already funky,
I do have better ones, but no photo available...
