I am so happy to have this UFO finished! This was my travel project when I retired in 2009 and I started it in December on our first trip after I retired when we traveled by car to Florida. I had my new (to me) Featherweight along and worked on these blocks in the motel at night. The name of it is "Scrappity Do Dah" and it was a free pattern that came in a quilting magazine promotion. It measures 88" x 98" to be a generous queen size.

Here are some close ups of different areas of the quilt so you can see some of the fabrics and the quilting.

Another UFO is almost finished. I started this one a few years ago when Barristers Block had a sew-a-long. I didn't finish it then, but this year she had another SAL, so I got it out and now I'm quilting it. It's a Bullseye quilt with raw edges that will fray after I wash it, which I will do after I'm done quilting and binding it. I'm about half way finished with the quilting. First I stitched in the ditches and now I'm quilting around the circle (bulls eye) and adding a leaf shape in the corners. I think that will be enough quilting. I might quilt feathers in the border.
I'm almost finished with this table runner that I'm making for my Etsy shop. I just need to sew the binding to the back.
A week ago I got lucky at an estate sale where there was literally tons of fabric, quilt kits, cross stitch kits and yarn for sale. I purchased a bunch of fabric for $1/yard as well as kits that I am listing in my Etsy shop. I'm still not finished listing items from this sale.
