UFO Progress

Thank you for all your kind thoughts and words! I am trying hard to take it easy. Sitting still is not my strong suit.

Remember this UFO? I bought the kit for this from a quilt shop last summer. It was part of a row by row project. I was only interested in this part because of the Jeep and the dog.

I made the dog white instead of brown so it would look like my Pierre. The sign was supposed to give directions to a quilt shop. I struggled for ages with what to do with this long narrow piece. I finally decided to get rid of the trailer. It’s cute, but I don’t have one in real life. I decided the lake was Lake Huron, about 15 miles from my house, so I lettered the sign accordingly.

I like this much better! I decided to frame this like a photo. I found this old bit in my stash for the frame and mitered the corners.

I like this so much better now. It’s a good memory of my Pierre too.

Come back tomorrow to see the finish. Have a great day!
