My oldest UFO

Back in 1988, I went to the first NSW Quilt Guild's Quilt Symposium held in Armidale NSW. It was the first of its kind and a group of us spent four days(??) doing various classes from a wide range of tutors.
One of the classes I did was machine quilting - using a walking foot - we had to pre-prepare a panel and in the class we quilted.  This was all before fabric markers that vanished, so it seems we marked in pencil.  I finished the panel at the time and it has been sitting / hiding ever since.(One interstate move and one house move)

In 2011 I joined up with Sew Its Finished and Marti's Challenge of 12 projects in a year and it was to be one of the projects that I completed that year.  When the time came I couldn't find that dratted piece anywhere...(must have had a "tidy up" binge!!)...So I found another project.

Finally, it's a cushion

FNSI - January

Reporting in for FNSI  - I did some tracing and some cutting...not much to show - but here is some of it.

And I played around with the bits I cut - but keeping it under wraps for now.

I hope everyone else had a fun time - and got lots done.
Thanks to Wendy for hosting !!

FNWF - January

Friday Night Sewing with Friends - 
Not just Friday Night - Saturday and Sunday as well.....two of my groups met this weekend - what a way to finish off my Annual Leave!
Friday Night saw me preparing for Saturday sewing.
So I traced onto vliesofix and ironed so I could cut on is part of it

and then I decided to start some hexies for the same project:

By Sunday Night I had sewn all but one of the hexies together.

(If you recognise what this is for - don't panic - I am not nearly as far ahead as it looks!!!)

It's wonderful to be back to FNWF - thanks Cheryll for continuing this for another year!
