Daisy Chain Mystery Progress

After weeks where it feels like my progress on things has been a complete crawl...I am happy to say I'm completely caught up on something.  I was starting to feel like this might be a quilt along that I let get to far ahead of me.  I had the first two week's worth of instructions finished but found myself two weeks behind.  When I pulled up the online posting schedule last week so see what instructions posted this week, my heart skipped a beat.  The week of April 29th was a catch up week.  Exactly what I needed!

Ready. Set. Go! Quilt Challenge

It's that time of the month again!  Time to share what I have made for the Island Batik Ambassador Challenge.  This month Island Batik and their partner AccuQuilt challenged us to make a baby quilt using the Go! Cutter and dyes provided to us by AccuQuilt.

UFO Busting #58

Welcome to week 58 of UFO Busting.  Have you been sewing along with us over the past year?  If not, join us!  This party isn't just for UFO's.  We definitely celebrate when you finish one but really it's about community and sharing what you're working on.  My main focus this week has been finishing up the April Island Batik challenge quilt but before I got my nose to the grind stone, I snuck in a little time with the Pat Sloan A Flower Bouquet Quilt.

All the blocks for section three are pieced and waiting on me to sew them all together.  Who knows, I might be doing that right now?

UFO Busting #57

Is it Saturday again already?  I'm not even sure how that happened.  The week flew by and I think the only thing that gathered in my sewing space was dust.  As much as I love warm sunny days, I do not love the responsibilities that come with it.  I could possibly be happy living in the land of snow 365 days a mowing, weeding, or running everywhere...just home and my sewing machine.  

So today I celebrate the smallest of sewing victories.  All of the blocks for the third section in Pat Sloan's A Flower Bouquet have been released and I haven't even touched them.  One evening I found a few minutes to sort through the fabrics I'm using to plan out the next four blocks.

UFO Busting #56

It's been a week of slow going when it comes to working on my list for the month.  I was able to cross one and a half things off.  I'm officially all caught up on the Pat Sloan Out of this world quilt along.  

This is me sharing the top row all pieced together at the guild meeting.  I didn't get a picture of this month's block, but it is finished as well.

UFO Busting #55

I have a UFO finish, y'all!  This baby quilt has actually been finished since February, I just had not gotten around to writing about it yet.

You can read more about Bundle Buster Baby Quilt here.  This is a quilt that color wise made me step outside my color comfort zone and I'm so glad it did.  I love it.

Other than that it is nose to the stone, working on the Ready. Set. Go! Baby Quilt Challenge for Island Batik.

Thanks to the good people at Accuquilt and the Go! cutter and dyes they sent, the cutting of fabrics for this challenge was a breeze!

Blocks are already forming and I hope to have a finish with in the next week to share with you.

I realize I'm committing a cardinal sewing sin in this picture...piecing with white thread on black my daughter will buff.

In trying to keep myself in line I have created a small to-do list for this month that looks a little bit like this...
  • Ready. Set. Go! Challenge
  • Out of This World BOM
  • A Flower Garden BOM
  • Daisy Chain Mystery Quilt
  • Holly Jolly Christmas UFO
  • Flag and Strawberry minis
  • 12.5" block for guild meeting
  • May IB Challenge
Anything else that I may start or finish this month will just be an extra.  As much as I love squirrels, I really need to stay focused and get some things finished up.

Speaking of squirrels and wild goose chases, Miss Vicki from Vicki's Crafts and Quilting definitely embarked on a quilty adventure when she innocently went looking through her quilting room for some paper pieced flowers.  She found all kinds of things she forgot about, including what would become a UFO finish.

She managed to unearth this not quite complete beauty and decided it was time for it to see a finish and become a H2H donation quilt.  Make sure you hop over to congratulate Vicki on this UFO finish.  It's a great reminder that sometimes the trip you think you are taking may lead to somewhere else, but that's okay.  Did she find her flowers?  Go read and find out!

Now it's your turn.  Let's see what your quilting journey has lead to this week.  Link up and tell us about it below.

This little gem of a quilt has actually been finished since February, I just have not gotten around to writing about it.  How does that even happen??  This is also my first UFO to cross off the list this year.
