UFO Busting #46


It's been a week of blocks, blocks and more blocks!  I am happy to report that all of the puppies for the Dog Gone Cute Quilt by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts are complete.  Two rows are actually sewn together.


This last little fellow ended up with blue eyes. 


He will definitely be that little one that stands out from everyone else.  There is always one in the pack.




Next up is the next two blocks in Pat Sloan's A Flower Bouquet QAL; Gazebo and Planting Guide.  I'm loving these turquoise fabrics with the reds and blacks.



They just make my heart sing.

In the middle of all this block piecing I managed to piece and quilt a small challenge project for the local guild.  I should be able to slap a binding on it and share it with you next week.


Other than that, I decided towards the end of the week to completely rearrange my sewing spaces again.  The cats and I are in a constant battle of the wills over my quilting space with my Sweet Sixteen.  They love it as much as I do, but it becomes a problem when you have serious quilting to do. 



So I have moved my machine to a room in the back of the house and placed the treadmill where the machine use to be.  Now I can lock myself away when I absolutely need to.  Plus it is warmer in that room as well.  Who knows, maybe I will use the treadmill more now that it isn't out of sight out of mind. 

That wraps up my week, let's see what you guys were up to at the last party.

Jen over at de Jong Dream House shared an update on her Brain Injury Quilt.  


She breaks down the meaning behind each flying goose that will be created for the quilt.  This is a great post with lots of detail.  This will truly be a labor of love to create a quilt that documents a very important story.  Please hop over and show her some quilty love if you haven't already.

Next up we have Anja and her UFO finish with the Freefall Quilt.


She participated in Sandra at mmm!quilts Freefall QAL back in 2017.  Fast forward to now and she is celebrating a Freefall finish!!!  Look at all those beautiful fall leaves dancing around on the large green leaf; that one leaf that just refuses to conform to the changes of autumn.  Make sure you congratulate Anja on her finish, a UFO busted is a happy happy quilt.

Now it's your turn.  Link up below and show us what you have been up to this week.


Next week, I hope to give you an up date on my PhD list for 2019.   So far I have no UFO finishes, but I have finished two current projects that will not fall victim to UFO land and that feels good.  I will also warn there is a slight chance the party will be canceled for next week but promise we will be back on track the following week.  Next week will be a rough week personally for me and I might not get anything written, but it's okay, we all have weeks like that.  But hopefully, we can crack a bottle of wine toast to a new future and party again next week.

Sounds like a very productive week! I hope the change in location for your Sweet 16 cuts down on the "help" you receive.

Hi Tish! {{{Hugs}}} You are strong, girl. You can get through anything, and you know when YOU close the door on something a window is usually cracked open to relieve the pressure. That window crack signifies that new goodness will float on in. Sometimes we cannot see why we have to endure such pain only to experience the greatest joy of our lives. Without something to compare that great gladness, we might not recognize it or even diminish it. Great job on all your projects. That must have been difficult moving your whole sewing room to a different part of the house. Somehow I don't see the kitties basking on the treadmill though. They want to be by you and keep you company! ~smile~ Roseanne More {{hugs}} for you!

You did quite a bit. I am determined to see if the Sweet 16 is a solution for me. My bernina is great but boy that throat space. I don't know if I have asked you but I bet it really does make it easier to do a larger quilt. Happy saturday and happy days sewing withouth fighting your furry friends - they will be insulted but will recover!

All your puppies are so cute! I made one, but didn't have time to make any friends for him.

I was thinking of you today while I was trying to slog my way through my scraps basket, which has gotten out of hand once again. I have a UFO that was a kit and is now a quilt, and will post on it either tomorrow or Monday, so will link up then. I obviously need to get my post schedule updated so I don't keep missing this linky party and Sandra's parties. Hope you like your new sewing room, and you and the cats find a happy arrangement!

Anja's quilt is just gorgeous! And your puppies are looking darling. Love a blue eyed hound dog! Hoping for the best for you for next week. Hang in there!

Sandra Walker said...

That last one with the blue eyes is almost a Rocco lookalike! :-) Good sewing work, and hey maybe there'll be some good treadmill work in your future too...hmm wouldn't it be cool (maybe) if we could run the quilting machine by walking on the treadmill??

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

The blue eyes look great. Can't wait to see them all pieced together. Thanks for the shout out. I finished another 2017 project. Good luck with the new location for the sewing machine.

Dione Gardner-Stephen said...

Ha - cats and sweet 16s, a match made in heaven - at least if you ask my cat. Good luck with the quilting privacy and warm thoughts for the week ahead for you.

Hopefully the moving around of the Sweet Sixteen and treadmill will work doubly well. I hope your week goes better than you think it will.

Emily said...

Love your puppies, especially the one with blue eyes! He will fun to look for in your finished quilt. Thinking of you this week.

dq said...

You got a ton done this week, Tish! I do love the blue eyed dog as well as the bottom yellow one with only one spot around his eye.

Thanks for telling us about the brain injury quilt. I will go read up on that post.

Jayne said...

I'm with everyone else...the blue eyed dog is adorable! Hopefully the new room for the Sweet 16 will take care of your sharing problem with the cats! It's funny how they are drawn to the machine or the space!
