UFO Busting #70

Welcome back for another week of UFO busting and UFO distractions.  UFO busting is where we celebrate those finishes that have been begging to be finished and we celebrate anything you worked on this week.  I hope you can take a few minutes to party harty with us this week.  This week I celebrated a blog hop finish. 

Tuesday was my day on the Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop.  I have been dying to show you the fabrics they sent me to play with.  I received a half yard bundle of the Geared Up collection and had so much fun playing with it.  Read more about these fabrics here and how to join the party and win prizes!

This week I continued working on the Daisy Chain Mystery Quilt.  I almost have all the block A's finished and predict the B blocks will see their day this weekend as well.

Cutting has also started on the Mosaic Mystery Quilt hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.

I plan to be ready when the next set of instructions come out the first week of September.

And exciting news for me...I finally have the shelving up and everything put away in my quilting room!  This has been a long long time coming.  

It's so nice to have nothing in the floor and be able to see everything I have.  No more shifting things to get to something else.  It definitely makes keeping track of all those lingering projects much much easier!

Now let's take a look at what you were up to last week.  Kathleen at Kathleen McMusing celebrated a finish with her Island Batik Beat the Heat Quilt, Morning Glory Mosaic using the Enchanted Forest collection.

Those purples and greens are to die for!  Make sure you hop over and read about the creation of this quilt and learn more about Enchanted Forest.

Next up is Lisa at Sunlight In Winter Quilts and her progress on the Modern Guild's charity quilt.

After piecing together all the sisterhood blocks, it was time for some slow vacation stitching.  Make sure you visit Lisa and her girls and help cheer her towards a finish!

Now it's your turn.  Link up below and show us what you've been up to this week.

Geared Up---Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Island Batik Beat the Heat Blog Hop!  

If this is your first time visiting, I hope you have time to stick around and check out some of the other projects I've made this year participating in the Island Batik Ambassador Program.  Today I am literally all Geared Up to share with you Kathy Engle's new line for Island Batik called Geared Up.

UFO Busting #69

Happy Saturday!  Although the days are still hot and humid here, I can tell there is a shift of seasons in the air.  The mornings are cool and there is a dampness that can only mean one thing...fall is around the corner...and I love it!  But before we totally say goodbye to summer, Island Batik has the Beat the Heat Blog Hop going on in full swing right now!

There is mouth watering fabrics and prizes!  Make sure you hop over to Island Batik to check it all out.  I'm getting all Geared Up because my day to post is Tuesday the 13th.

Though I have been busting my booty to get ready for the hop, I was able to sneak in sewing time on a few other projects.  First up was finishing up a secret project, I can't tell you about yet.  It's been fun to work on, but I'm happy to see it finally finishing up.

I also picked up the Daisy Chain Mystery Quilt hosted by Little Bunny Quilts.  I had forgot where I was in the process and much to my surprise all the little bits and pieces where together.  All I needed to do was start on the blocks.  I only have a few made, but it really feels like I've accomplished something.  Sometimes it's just the little things.

This week I'm highlighting Nancy over at Grace and Peace Quilting and the quilting finish of Tracie at Riceford Stream's  Choose Your Own Adventure Quilt.  

I love this quilt so much.  I wanted to make it while the quilt along was going on, but time just wasn't having it.  So, I'm drooling over Tracie's piecing and Nancy's beautiful quilting!  Congrats to both of you on this finish!!

Now let's see what you've been up to this week.  Link up below and tell us all about it.

Now it's back to finishing that hop quilt for me.  Wish me luck!!

UFO Busting #68

With deadlines looming over my head, I managed to sneak in a bit of me sewing time this week in the form of catching up on the Pat Sloan Out of this World Mystery Quilt.

My mind is already racing on how this one will be quilted.  I am hoping to get it finished before the end of the year.

Happy--Artsy Fartsy Challenge

Artys Fartsy was the name of the game from Island Batik and Aurifil this month.  The challenge was to create a quilt with thread being our main focus.  They encouraged us to think of it as fabric is our canvas and thread is our paint.  Our only rule was to use at least 3 different weights of Aurifil thread...challenge accepted!

UFO Busting #67

Woot I'm back!  It's been hard to keep up with blogging, working, being an adult and sewing.  I'm not sure I'm liking it much, but I'm back this week so let's party!  I'm still mostly working on secret sewing stuff, but I have a few things that I can share with you.

Our second box of goodies from Island Batik arrived and as you can see, everyone was excited to see what's inside.  I will have an unboxing video up soon and a full length post to show you all goodies contained within.  How do you feel about videos?  Is that something you enjoy seeing from your blogging friends?

UFO Busting #66

Welcome to UFO Busting late 4th of July style.  It's been such a crazy two weeks that last weekend came and went before I realized I missed my own party.  If anyone can be late to their own funeral...I'm pretty sure it will be me.  I want to show you all the amazing sewing I've been doing, but dang it, it's pretty much all secret sewing for upcoming events.  So my question is what can I show you??  How about this.

These are my fabrics for Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs Mosaic Mystery QAL.
