UFO Busting #64

I think I have finally emerged from my sick state and joined everyone in the real world.  A head/chest cold in summer is never fun, but I guess someone has to give those germs a place to live and die.  I may have been down, but I did manage to celebrate two finishes and start some new projects.

Heats on Fire my Make it Modern challenge quilt for Island Batik saw it's finish.  Quite frankly it still has me all hot and bothered.

Passion Flowers Fat Quarter Fun

A few months ago, while part of the 2018 Aurifil Artisan team, I was offered the chance to play with fat quarters from Anna Maria Horner's Passion Flowers line of fabric.  Oh my yummy goodness!

Make It Modern-Hearts on Fire

First up a thousand apologies that this post hasn't gone live until June 3rd.  The challenge quilt was actually finished before the end of May but really icky weather and a head cold that came from no where really put the post on hold.  Hopefully all the quilty fun makes up for it.

UFO Busting #63

What did I learn last month?  May waits for no one.  Happy first of June!  May was a month of party and celebration with little time for sewing.  I'm hoping June brings some catch up time and slower days.  First up, the daughter is all graduated and stuff!

UFO Busting #62

It's a weekend of celebration in my house hold this weekend.  I've always said if I could get my daughter to the age of 18 and graduated from high school...I would have accomplished something.  And finally my friends, I have done just that.  Even through all the insaneness of school events and the big day itself, I managed to sneak in a bit of sewing time.

The end of the month is quickly approaching and my May Island Batik project isn't finished.  I'm calling it the Lusty Month of May Quilt and I am itching for a finish.  Quilting started this week and it has been all about the lines.  Lines are modern, right?

UFO Busting #61

It's Saturday again!  I imagine right now I'm probably (hopefully) sitting in the shade taking in the sights and sounds of the 2019 Strawberry Festival Parade.  I will have my tissues with me because it will the last time my daughter marches down Strawberry Lane as part of the mighty BU Band.  My heart swells just thinking about it.  Today I am full of hometown pride and mommy pride.

Needless to say, not much in the way of sewing happened in my world this week.  Actually none at all.  I did however help prepare quilts for judging at our annual quilt show.

Episode 2 of C&P

Last week I was basking in a new love affair with beautiful fabrics.  We flirted.  We went out.  And it looked like this.  Bits and pieces of bright beautiful half square triangles.

But with all relationships, you come to the point where you have to decide to take it to the next level and we were there.  It was time to come together and really build something.
