UFO Busting #91

Happy Saturday!  And you know what that means, it's time for us to get down and party and celebrate those finishes and not finishes and furry little squirrels running around our sewing room.  This week hasn't been quite as productive as I would have liked, but one step at a time. 

I did managed to get all 100 HST's sewn and pressed for the Gravity quilt.  I even matched my manicure to the fabrics, which felt like a big win.  Hopefully, by the end of the week I can say that they are all trimmed as well.

Rows of the Mosaic Mystery are all most all pieced together, so hopefully next weekend I will be showing up a finished quilt top.

I finally located this little UFO hiding at the bottom of a pile to start quilting again.  As you can see, it already has some thread bling going on.  For the life of me I can't remember what the quilting plan was, but it's time to just stitch and see where things go. 

I'm not the only one doing the shuffle over here.  Last week, Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting was celebrating the finish of her HST Shuffle Mini Quilt.

This little quilt is Nancy's second finish of 2020 (you go girl!) and the yummy is all over it.  Make sure you hop over to congratulate her and check it out.  Those fabrics are so much fun!  And wait till you check out the metallic thread....just saying.

Next up, we have Gail at Quilting Gail.  I'm a little envious.  Gail was on her way to a quilting retreat this week with visions of productivity swimming in her head.  You'll have to pay her a visit to see what she was planning on working on, but I'll give you a glimpse of her Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt pieces.

I just love all those fabrics!!!  Gail, we hope you had an amazing time at retreat!!

Now it's your turn.  Link up below and tell us what you've been working on this week.

UFO Busting #90

Welcome back to another addition of UFO Busting.  It's been a crazy week.  There was a full moon.  Did you feel it?  I know I sure did, it's like everyone lost their marbles, but things are leveling back out and returning to normal.  Even though the week didn't lead to much sewing I still managed to work on a few things.

I finished up all the diagonal blocks for the Mosaic Mystery Quilt and hopefully tomorrow will be able to make the rows come together.

To-Do Tuesday-#2

It feels good to be starting the year off right!  Although, starting something is usually pretty easy.  You're pepped.  You're ready.  You are going to do this!  It's the long term that sometimes trips you up.  I'm optimistic that us all being in this together, the long term is going to be easy.  Everything is better with friends.

Last week's list...

1) Work on and finish all of the instructions for the Mosaic Mystery Quilt--so close

This one was almost completed.  I got all the pieces except the diagonal blocks finished.  Considering the final layout was released last Thursday and I was basically starting at the beginning I will take this as a win.  I had a few mis-cuts that kinda slowed things down.

UFO Busting #89

A little more fireworks please!  I'm still ringing in the New Year over here.  I'm just not quite ready to stop.  A few days before the end of the year, I was able to celebrate my last finish, my 3D challenge project and official last Island Batik Ambassador project Positively 3D.  You can read more about it here.

I just love how it looks like you could reach out and grab those pluses right off the quilt.

It's been forever since I've set a monthly goal for myself but I'm back and ready to crack that whip.  I am joining in with Patty at Elm Street Quilts for her monthly link up to encourage us to tackle just one thing for the month (and there is prizes...shhhh).  This month I will be tackling piecing the Mosaic Mystery Quilt designed and hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.

I had set a goal last week to get all of the block pieces pieced and I'm almost there.  

My goal for the month will be to take all the pieces and turn them into a finished quilt top.  This will hopefully allow me to get the quilt finished before the parade of quilts in March.  This also means that this quilt will have never hit my UFO list and that is something to celebrate!!!

To-Do Tuesday #1

I've decided this year, I'm going to start checking in with Roseanne and Sue at Home Sewn By Us and their weekly To-Do Tuesday linky.  So I can instantly cross writing this post off the list...pat on back.  So let's take a look at what I think I might accomplish this week.

1)  Work on and hopefully finish all the Mosaic Mystery instructions to date (up to December anyway).  So far I have all the pieces cut and diagonals marked for each bit that has been released.  Now to find time to sew.
