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.


I also managed to squeak out three more puppy blocks for my Dog Gone Cute quilt.  Dare I say I might be piecing a quilt top as early as next week?




The piecing on these blocks are very far from perfect and I'm okay with that.  This quilt is 100% for me.  It will be my new cuddle comfort couch quilt.  All of the fabrics in the puppies were pick out with the help of Beth (Cooking Up Quilts), Sandra (mmm!quilts), Julie (Pink Doxies) and Jennifer (Inquiring Quilter).  Every time I snuggle this quilt I will think of them and Helen (Midget Gem Quilts), who provided the blue spot fabric in the last dog and Lorna (Sew Fresh Quilts) the pattern designer.

I also need to get my rear in gear and commence to some quilt quilting.  I am currently working on finishing up the last small Fireburst Quilt.  When it's done, what next?  Using a random number generator I picked from my PhD List.  #5 was picked first, Holly Jolly Christmas quilt.  That's fair, it is currently loaded on the long arm half finished and the second picked was #8 Baby Bundle Buster.  That works because I can work on it at the house.  Hopefully, three finishes right around the corner...fingers crossed.

So let's see what you were up to at last week's party.  It's the second week of 2019 and already we have a finish to celebrate.  Gail at Quilting Gail finished up her Shells quilt.  




Shells is a fun little project she made from the book Turnabout Patchwork.  I'm in love with her quilting!  Make sure you pop over and congratulate her on this finish.

Next up is Jen from de Jong Dream House and a quilt she will be working on this year.  It is a quilt to document her year in regards to her brain injury and how it affects her day to day life.



Please take a moment if you haven't already to read her story and about the process of creating this quilt.  Jen, I will be cheering you on all year and can't wait to see the finished quilt!

So now let's take a look at what you've been up to this week.  Link up below and show us what you've been into.  Are you New Years resolution-ing or did that fly out the window a week ago?

You've made great progress this week and I look forward to seeing some beautiful quilt finishes soon, too. :) I love that the Dog Gone quilt will remind you of so many wonderful friends. It will definitely be a big quilty hug every time you use it!

Hi Tish! I am one lucky B because I really don't have any UFOs to work on. Having just completed Gail's PHD last year, they are all wrapped up. I think I'm about to create a whole bunch of them though because I have a bunch of ideas that I just want to get going on right this minute. In fact, there is definitely a squirrel cutting to the front to be shared by the end of the month. Those dogs are SO DARN CUTE. I love the teal dots with the swirly fabric, and the other two guys are cute as well. They could all come live at my house any time they'd like. And Lorna's patterns are just the best too. What a fabulous remembrance of good times with good friends. ~smile~ Roseanne

Great progress on those dogs!

You've had some fun sewing going on -- those pups are just too cute! I'm linking up my Fireburst; I dragged my feet on it long enough that I consider it a UFO. Hope that's okay! Can't wait to see the pups quilt all finished!

These dogs are looking great Tish! It's nice to have the fabric memories as well in your quilt.

I keep wanting to make those puppy blocks. So many quilts, so little time! This week I'm cranking on two secret projects, gifts for special people back in California. Hopefully some finishes to share at the end of the month.

Jen @ de Jong Dream House said...

Aw! Thanks for the love! My Brain Injury quilt is going to be fun project this year, but I guarantee I'll get behind at points. It will help to know I've got people like you cheering me on!

Hi Tish, I am interested in hearing the story behind Jen's Brain injury quilt. My daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury 6 years ago from a serious car accident.

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

The dogs are adorable. Good luck with your quilting projects.

Cute puppies, I can't wait to see them come together in a quilt.
