BOM of the Week Update


So far so good on the blocks of the week update.  This is the second time I have participated in one of Pat Sloan's weekly block quilts.  This one is called A Flower Bouquet with a new block coming out every Wednesday.  Two blocks have been released so far and I'm happy to say I'm 2/2.

I could not wait to break into this fat quarter bundle I picked up back in the fall at Miller's Dry Goods in OH.  I knew that it belonged in this quilt.  The instructions called for 19 fat quarters and my bundle only contained 14...no problem I just pulled from my stash.

Here is a close up of last week's block, Seed Catalogs, to show those yummy prints.


And this week's, Bulbs.


Is it too soon to start day dreaming about what the final layout will be after only two blocks?


I do hope not, because if so, I am in deep trouble!

UFO Busting #44


Welcome back for another addition of UFO Busting, a linky party where we either celebrate your UFO hard work or distractions that keep you from them...your choice.  This week I've worked on a little bit of everything.  I've kept up with some quilt alongs (BOM) and have prepared for one that will be starting next week.


I finished piecing together this panel top that will be quilted during Amy at Amy's Freemotion Quilting Adventures QAL that starts next week.  I purchased this panel back in the fall when I was at a quilting retreat with the hopes of quilting it this year.  So, when I discovered Amy would be hosting a quilt along to literally quilt this panel, I had to join in.  It was like fate and you never tempt fate.

Fireburst Winners


I want to thank everyone who helped make the Fireburst Mystery Quilt such a success!  We had a total of 22 participants, all entering the most beautiful quilts!  Now that the smoke has settled, I would like to announce the winners of the prizes.  I used a random number generator app to select the winners for each prize.

2019 PhD


Last year, other than starting a linky party of my own, I've kept a pretty low profile when it comes to participating in things.  I'm ready to be all social and stuff again.  I've decided to join Gail at Quilting Gail and work on my PhD in 2019.  If you haven't heard of this, I'll wait while you go here and read about this very cool project she started last year.  It really is a great way to keep accountable on projects you want to finish and finishing projects you start in the current year.

UFO Busting #43


We officially made it the first week of the New Year!  Are we still energized and feeling motivated for the next 51 weeks?  I know I am.  I've spent the week cleaning, reorganizing and reclaiming my house after a holiday visitor left.  Things are returning to normal and it's time to get back to some serious work.  

I've decided to join Gail at Quilting Gail in her PhD program for 2019 and really commit to finishing some older projects...and all the new ones I start.

UFO Busting #42


Welcome to party 42 of UFO Busting.  It's been an emotional and crazy Christmas.  I'd love to wow you with all the amazing things I worked on or possibly the stash and cleaning I've accomplished, but alas there was none.  So this week I will depend on you for motivation and inspiration.
First up I'd like to highlight Deana over at Dreamworthy Quilts.  Last week she was working away on a new quilt embroidery project while spending time with family.  She also mentioned in a post a linky party she is hosting, with a pretty cool concept...make your own BOM for 2019.


What a great way to bust a UFO or several.  Treat them like your own personal block of the month!  You can read more about this fabulous idea here.

Next up we have Emily at The Darling Dogwood and her Bumper 2 Bumper quilt finish.

This adorable quilt was her Rainbow Scrap Challenge project for 2018.  She used Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilt's pattern Bumper 2 Bumper to create little cars in the color for each month.  The quilt has been backed with a soft fleece and will be donated to her local Project Linus chapter.  Make sure you pop over to congratulated her on her finish.

So let's see what you've been up to this holiday season?  Did you already enthusiastically start next years Christmas gifts or are you just waking up from a turkey coma?

Also don't forget to email me a picture of your finished Fireburst quilts and quilt tops to tishnwonderlandqal(at)gmail(dot)com before noon on the 31st so that I can get you entered in a chance for prizes for the parade of quilts!!
