I thought I would commit to One Monthly Goal this month. I have a UFO that I have done a little work on – a tablerunner.
It is pattern called Modified Trees by Eva Page Quilt Designs. Beth Helfter spoke at our guild and I thought the pattern would be a fun one for a boutique or gift for a friend. I made it and got stuck on wanting to do the border. 2 nights ago, I decided to forgo the entire border, but only add some ground for the trees.
This picture is only half the tablerunner. There is also a star between the two trees, and I am thinking of a ribbon to do that or fancy stitching – but have to look and see what might work. The colors I choose are a little bright, but I think I will like it.
This will be the back and binding. It is a fabric that was in my stash but it quite fun with the trees. I have an idea for quilting – we’ll see if its as brilliant as I think – or whether I can do it. Wish me luck.
Linking up with: One Monthly Goal
Oh, it will be fun to see this finished! Here's to tackling those UFOs!
Indeed! I am a little afraid that with the IB ambassador I won’t get as much out but I am determined that after the consulting gig slows down in March that I will be super-focused. Picking doable ones for these two months. You, too, are cranking them out!!!
I hope that OMG is a great way to help you focus on what you want to work on in the year. It will be great to see this turned into a finish!
Thanks, Yvonne. I do think OMG may work, and, I was glad to have figured out what was bothering me and a way to fix it!
This is going to be very pretty. I clicked the link to see the pattern and I do like it with the stronger colors. It would make a neat wall hanging if only one tree was made. I could see making this in wool. Thanks for sharing and you go girl! 🙂
Thanks, Rose. Yes it could be a single or made in wool. Like so many things the sky is the limit. I didn’t like how the edges looked for me so I am happy with my redesign. Some stuff just doesn’t;t work in our heads.
I really like how it looks so far. I'm interested to see where you with it from here. Good luck!
Thanks, Emily. There are a few bits that may challenge me – the quilting I'd like to do and the embellishment with the ribbon.
Very cool, mod trees! Is it raw edge applique?
Yes, it is. I intend to machine appliqué the trees, then do some quilting, which I hope will embellish the quilt. Wish me luck!
The tree pattern is very interesting, I think that it going to be an awesome quilt.
