I'm usually up for a challenge, especially when it involves stitch.  This past year, the Halton Hills Quilters' Guild President Challenge was to complete a UFO by the end of the quilt guild season.  I signed up in February, thinking that if I pushed myself, I would be able to complete a quilt that I have been working on for years and years.  My brilliant idea, at the time, was to quilt it by hand.  Of course, I backed it with flannel.  Quilting by hand was long and tedious and hurt my fingers.  Now I remember why I quilt by machine these days.

Anyway, I persevered but did not complete the quilt in time.  Over the past week, however, hand-quilted for hours and completed all the hand-quilting I thought necessary.  This morning, I brought the quilt to my machine.  I'm going to machine quilt the borders and maybe even free-motion stitch around the hearts.  Maybe it will be ready for the next President's Challenge.
