UFO Busting #30

Happy Saturday to you!  I hope this post finds you happy and safe where ever you are.  It's been a crazy week watching as Hurricane Florence prepares to hit along the east coast near the Carolinas.  I did manage to sneak in some sewing earlier in the week before helping my aunt in law prepare for her weekend move.  My muscles definitely got a workout this week and the past few.

I want to give a huge shout out to my family and friends for all the help the provided with this move.  I feel very lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful people that are willing to jump in and help, when really they didn't have to.  It definitely made this move much quicker and easier.

Now on to the sewing.

UFO Busting #29

"A journey of a thousand quilts begins with a single stitch."  I was quite happy to see this piece of sage advice when chopping up this beautiful Kate Spain FQ last weekend.  Isn't that true of everything?  Do not discount the small steps we take, they lead to many great things!  Even when that one small stitch seems impossible to make happen.

My focus this week, when I could find the time has been finishing the piecing of this Star Blossom Baby quilt.  Slowly she moved in various stages.

Fireburst Mystery-My Block 2 Blocks

In case you missed it this past weekend, instructions for the second block in the Fireburst Mystery Quilt was released.  I didn't get to share the pictures of my finished blocks in that post, well because they were not finished.  But I am happy to report that all 3 sets are complete!

First up, in absolutely no layout what so ever, are the blocks for my full sized scrappy version of the quilt.  I can't wait to get this one finished to see how it looks.

UFO Busting #28

I promise we will get this party going on it's correct day of the week very soon.  With tomorrow being the release of the next set of instructions for the Fireburst Mystery Quilt, I thought we would start partying again early this week.  It's never too early for a party.

I'd love to show you all the productive quilt things I did this week, but alas, thread to fabric, I wasn't that productive.  Nothing on my quilting list got accomplished this week.  However, that doesn't mean I wasn't productive.  I'm still riding the declutter rearrange my house train.  One of the areas I focused on was where my Sweet Sixteen lives.  After moving some shelving around, I changed the wall that it sets on.

UFO Busting #27 (A day early)

I'm back! It's back! And it feels great!  I can't wait to hear what everyone has been up to during my several weeks/months hiatus.  I have managed to sneak in some sewing time and create a few more UFO's (smacks palm to forehead).  That's okay, job security for this linky party.

This week, I focused on starting a Star Blossom Baby Quilt that will be a gift for a dear friend expecting in November.  She sent pictures of her decorated nursery and I knew immediately it needed a quilt with Kate Spain fabrics.

Bring Back UFO Busting

With the completion of anther baby quilt top and feeling like my sewjo may have returned, I'm thinking next weekend it may be time to bring back UFO Busting.  Does anyone agree?  Is anyone still out there?  I hope that you are.  So if you are up for it let's make a date of it.  I want to be here encouraging you to finish those old projects and the ones you start.  Don't let the title fool you, this party is for everyone, not just alien lovers.
