3 more UFO finishes

My 2nd finish for this year is this bag for Haylee. made from caring hearts that my Our Craft Forum friends nominated Haylee when she went to Kenya for a mission awareness trip in 2009. I made this bag while she was away over the weekend and surprised her.

The third finish was a Fig & Plum table runner, I made as the example while I was teaching my friend how to quilt. All I needed to do to finish was the binding. I finished late last night.

My fourth finish was a bunch of fibre book marks for work.

I have signed up for the FMQ challenge over at SewCalGal I really wanted to work on my FMQ as I have 4 quilt tops I want to quilt myself and wanted to do more that the meandering I have been doing (& not all that well I might add), so this came at a great time. Each month they have a tutorial by a guest quilter and giveaways as well. This months guest was Frances Moore and she showed us how to quilt flowing leaves. This was one of those patterns I really wanted to learn and I was surprised by its simplicity. I started by practising of some scrap fabric, I have gone over the pattern a few times as I just wanted more practise, I need to work on the rotating so my leaves don't go all in the same direction. I hope to complete a table centre with this pattern over the next few days.

Don't forget to enter my Violetta table runner giveaway in my previous post.

Doesn't it feel great to finish things!? I'm trying to do that as well, use from stash, finish projects already started, and feel good about it! :)
