Weekend Stitching - Finished My Geometry Assignment

It was a beautiful weekend here, sunny and warm.  We were out and about on Saturday getting Drama Teen's senior portrait taken.  Here's one of the good shots.

Since one of the goofy shots was in yesterday's post DT asked for equal time for one of the better shots.  

Sewing time was a bit limited this weekend due to all the graduation preparation stuff going on.  However, I did find enough time to finish the binding on the third graduation quilt. 

Geometry, self designed
Started: December 17, 2016, Finished:  May 7, 2017

It's a very fun quilt.  Trudy quilted a different design in each color.

Trudy as always did a beautiful job with the quilting.  Drama Teen is very happy with it. We both hope her friend will like it.  The current plan is to have a hang out party the afternoon of the last day of school and we'll do the gifting then.  There's so much going on with graduation that it's best we do it before then.  

Geometry is the first finish off my 2017 Finish Along list for the second quarter.  It's my third finish for the year.  It feels really good to get another one off the WIP list.  My UFO count still sits at 17 as this quilt was started and finished within the year.  But getting it off the WIP list means it won't make it to the UFO list.  So at least the UFO count isn't going up.  Hopefully once all the graduation quilts are done, there will be time to work on shortening the UFO list.

Great senior photo. Back in the day (1980's) we only got the traditional formal senior photos. My how times have changed, lol. The Geometry quilt is gorgeous :)

What lovely natural and relaxed pic of your daughter. I always loved this quilt, it's beautiful. How do you define the difference between a WIP and a UFO? I always class a WIP as within a year of the start date, or, a UFO which has been resurrected and is currently being worked on. A UFO is a quilt top started but abandoned and over a year old. At least that is how I categorise them.

Geometry looks great! Love the black fabric, the simple but striking design, and the quilting. Great picture of your graduate!
