Almost Done

This is UFO #7.  I really thought is quilt would never get finished.  I was sick all last week and had a lot of time to think.....  I decided to work just one half hour a day on this quilt.  If I would commit to,that the quilt would get done, right?  Well the half hour led to longer time and in a week I had the center of the quilt done.  I must admit that my new toy the "big shot pro" from Suzzix made making the half square triangles sooooo much easier.  Here is how it looked at the middle of the week
Here is how iit looked last night

I started the borders today.  Looks like my sis will actually get the quilt before her birthday, it has only been two years In The making

Labyrinth Quilt

My local quilt shop had a class using the pattern LABYRINTH by Debbie Maddy.  I made the queen size, but did not use the pattern for the borders.  I love how bright and cherry this came out.  The finished size is 80 x 90.  My goal is to make a quilt for my bed for each season.  This is summer.  I will be linking this up at Confession of a fabricholic for her woop woop Friday here

I quilted this on my long arm using the hooked on feather technique.  Here is a close up of the center

Happy with this new border

I have been waiting to work on this border because I bought a Sizzix Big Shot and have been waiting for the HST die.  it finally came and I got one border done.  It went super fast using the die, one cut, one seam and voila a HST.  This is for my second to last UFO.  I bought a new pantograph for this quilt and can't wait to get it one the long arm.  Will post another picture when the border is on the quilt.
