UFO Busting…Number TWO!

YAHOO!!  Another UFO bites the dust!  That’s Number Two for September! 

(Sheesh…Am I ONLY finishing UFO Number TWO?  Feels like I have been Busting UFOs FOREVER!!)

This picture was taken back at the beginning of September… the Wee House Quilt was auditioning the old frame that I found at a GS while in Palm Springs last winter…Remember, we thought it looked kind of blah…

P1190874-001

So I painted her up and here she is FINISHED!

P1200115

OK…OK…I confess…as soon as I finished taking these photos, I popped the quilt out again as the frame is a tad bit tacky…and needs another day to dry!  So technically it’s not finished… but it will be by dinner time today! :o)P1200116

I spray painted the frame with this paint…the ONLY spray paint that I could find in this colour…and then when the frame was dry (well..sort of dry) using a foam block sander, gave it a quick once over to rough it up a bit!

P1200117 

This quilt finished out at 16” X 18”…not quite square, as this was the size of the frame. 

 P1200114

You can see that she is slightly off kilter.  When I put this wee quilt back into the frame tonight, I will make sure that she is nice and straight…ruler out and measure!…But for this morning…well…you get the idea!  All in all…I think she looks great! And besides SHE’S DONE! 

Another one bites the dust!  Oh yeah…another one bites the dust…Uhhh hah!  ( I miss my little musical note inserts! :o(  Where did that button go?!)

So back into the closet I go…looking for UFO Number THREE! 

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P

That looks FABULOUS! I have plenty of ufo's I'll send you if you don't find another to work on! I really love that and the first thing I thought was how much I'd like to do a little quilt. Then I remembered my own stack of ufo's...oh well...maybe someday I can retire and just sew. It could happen...

Thanks for sharing! It's beautiful!

Nice work, Paulette, but I still don't see any garage sale signs in that new neighborhood. They must sell everything on-line, huh?

great! I like the makeover on the frame. The little houses look perfect in it.

It looks beautiful in the frame. I usually buy used frames or ones in the store on the sale rack, they look beat up, lol. I like sanding and staining, easier and quicker.

I love your little houses. I've always wanted to do a house quilt, but haven't got it done yet. You did a great job with the frame.

Beverley said...

Your little quilt looks lovely in the frame. Well done on another UFO. How many UFOs do you have?? You can tell me, I won't breathe a word. :-)

What a great finish! I LOVE it!

I remember when you purchased that frame. I was going to start looking at frames in thrift stores. Square ones are hard to find and that is what I want. I know I looked a bit and then forgot about it. Your post is a good reminder.
