The September 30th deadline brings our third $25 drawing during the October Guild meeting. Only one more UFO to finish! I don't know about you but for me, this year is zooming by. Sometimes a bit overwhelming but I love having quilting to rest my mind, get the creative juices flowing and share with others.
Pouring through all of these beautiful fabrics, the colors, the textures and all of the designs right there at our fingertips, is magic to the quilter's soul. When I started quilting in the late 1970s it was hard to find 100% cotton fabrics for quilting. Scissors for cutting was the norm. Using cereal boxes and the plastic inserts from bacon packages made the perfect templates. We've come a long way! The first rotary cutter was introduced by the Olfa company in 1979 for garment making, however, it was quickly adopted by quilters. Omnigrid started marketing rulers in 1985. Thank goodness, right? Love, love, love rotary cutters and rulers! We have so much more available for us today. Hmmm, maybe that contributes to my UFO stack! Well, I better get busy on my next one.
Send us your photos when you're finished. Seeing your UFO photos
is always exciting and inspirational. Good luck in the drawing!
