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.

Pretty Bundle Buster Baby Quilt! Your blocks for the Baby Quilt Challenge are beautiful, and the white thread doesn't show on the right side ;)

Aww thanks for the shout out Tish. I have my April challenge pieced, but can't decide how to quilt it. It wants custom but do I have enough time with a weeks trip this month.

Love Vicki's finish, and yours!! Phew! that to-do list means what, two items a week off the list? I may need some hand-holding as I try out this AccuQuilt...your project looks gorgeous!

Hi Tish! That block with the beauuuuuuutiful blue fabric surrounded by black being sewn with white thread is just stunning. OMG. I want to make that . . . right this minute. I cannot wait to see where that goes, along with the purple sneak peek you share. LOVE it. ~smile~ Roseanne

Nice, newsy post today! Great finish, too. It always feels good to complete another UFO! I’m working on one, myself, and it’s ready to layer. Isn’t Vicki's UFO pretty? She’ll be so happy that she pulled it out to complete. You have quite an ambitious list, young lady! Good luck accomplishing all you can!

Congrats on the finish. I piece black with white thread. I've tried black in the past, but it's too hard on the eyes LOL

I love the colors in your latest finish! Definitely outside your usual choices, and mine too for that matter. But wow! It looks super :)
