Here is my first UFO Domination project - the Pet Quilt. As promised, I said I would show how it turned out so here it is:
I had mentioned here about Steam A Seam product to attach the applique and I could not recall if that was the good stuff, or the bad stuff for quilting. IT IS THE BAD! It made the fabric extremely stiff - its still stiff after washing and machine cannot stitch through it as you can see above, I was only able to quilt part of the applique pieces. When I was attaching the pieces, I had to keep cleaning my needles off and inside the bobbin area as they were covered in glue and breaking the thread.
The good stuff I got from my quilting mentor, it says Pellon on the instructions, but I cannot find an actual name for it. She had sold me 6 meters off a giant roll so unfortunately that is all I know. I still have some thankfully and I will see her again at the end of April. As a side note, I think the Steam A Seam is perfect for Mr. Hunter's hockey patches.
This UFO was done just in time as it has been dipping into the -30 degree Celsius at night here. I now have 5 layers on the bed, it is awesome! Mr. Hunter came to wake me up at 8:30am yesterday morning and he told me I was so warm. Well I should hope so with that many layers!
I hope your weekends were fantastic, and your hubbies let you sleep in! =P
