Yes, it’s all about UFO’s. Are we talking Unfinished objects? Are we talking Aliens?
Have you had a chance to check out all of the bloggers participating in the hop?
I’d like to thank Joan from MooseStash Quilting for devising the perfect theme for this month’s hop.
For anybody who doesn’t know me, I am on a mission to work on getting the contents of my UFO bins emptied and finished so the theme for this hop is perfect.
My hold up with finishing my quilts is the fact that my longarm is at my best friend’s house/studio which is 5 hours drive each way from my home. Time away at the studio isn’t always easy to schedule, but I get there as often as I can. These days my time here is spent helping my best friends with meal prep, chores and housework more than longarming, but I am managing to get some things finished! 😄
One project I managed to finish is technically not a UFO since it is actually a commission, but it was started in April! I just had to share it because I love the cute fabrics! 😉
My inner squirrel, Samantha, completely side-tracked my with another flimsy which I was able to finish quilting and binding (a real UFO from my TBQ bins) from a pattern by one of my favourite designers, Sandra Walker from MMM Quilts. The pattern is Pop Star and was a QAL that Sandra hosted from April – June.
These two completed projects were the results of my fun, in spite of of my last two weeks almost non stop travelling back and forth from home to the studio.
Then as a result of Samantha’s constant chatter I pulled another UFO from the bins and started working on it. This one is a fun panel quilt that was gifted to me by Denise S. I really feel the need to be surrounded some bright, happy colours these days and this seemed to fit the bill! There is also the bonus of it being small enough, it can travel back and forth with me as I go since I can always finish it on my dsm.🤔
Here is the list for today’s participants, Thursday July 28;
Quilt Schmilt. You’re here 😉
Hope you’ve been able to see what everyone has been busy doing for our inspiration. Thank you for visiting. I love reading and responding to your comments and I know every blogger enjoys this method of showing some quilty love to them for their efforts at inspiring us. 😉 Carol
