Thursday craft - Working on a UFO

UnFinished Object if you wasn't sure what that meant. I found this beautiful hexagon quilt some time ago in an op shop. It had never been finished.....

Someone had spent hours and hours lovingly sewing hundreds of tiny hexagons together by hand...

It must be quite old as some of the hexagons had holes in and some of the fabric was just disintegrating, so I'm covering the holes with hearts and flowers and appliqueing by hand...

Today at craft I cut out some hearts & flowers and ironed them on with that iron on stuff (technical ain't I?) and they're are ready to be appliqued. I didn't get a full day there today so it doesn't sound like I've done much, but as with so many crafts there's always lots of faffing!

Off to watch TV now, we've just been out for a curry at our fav restuarant, it was lovely as usual.

Anyone up for a UFO challenge? Reckon it's we had another eh?

See ya soon ♥

  4. I agree with everyone in the Universe...that quilt top is outstanding. Kind of nice that it has worn/disintegrating, and you can put your own self onto it. Where will you use it?
