December Project…

My Mother in Law and I have taken a few quilting classes over the years.  She is a garment sewer, but decided to give quilting a shot.  The projects get started, but she never seems to finish them (sound familiar?).  So she’s started giving me her UFOs one at a time and I finish them for her for Christmas.  This year is her Trip Around the World.  I’m in the process right now of remaking the section that she was working on because our seam allowances are not matching up and there was a 2” differences in our lengths.  I’ll use the section she made on the backing though, so it will still be a part of the quilt.

Here’s what it looks like so far.  I have alot more to do in the next couple weeks though.  I’ll be working on it on all of my days off between now and Christmas.

Wow, you are definitely a hero! To fix someone else's problems so their UFO will be finished...I can't get around to doing that for me much less for someone else. Good for you!

That's a HUGE project! Hard enough doing one in the first place and you're fixing one then finishing it . . . wow!
