UFO Busting #59

Welcome to UFO Busting...where we celebrate UFO's we spot and finish, get distracted by new stuff and hopefully just have a good time.  We had several UFO's flying around last week, but we will get to them in a few.  Love is in the air over here.  I have a new crush and I'm crushing hard.

I am wine-ing and dinning this Island Batik Moroccan Bazaar strip set pretty hard.  From the moment I set eyes on it, I knew it was for me.  It totally made me walk away from a project that could have been, in hopes of something new and beautiful.  We've had our first quilty date, but that's for another post.

I'm super excited to say, that I've started to work on a secret project for August, but I can't say anything other than that and got caught up on all the quilt-a-longs I'm participating in.  I have all my pieces together for Little Bunny Quilt's Daisy Chain Mystery Quilt, just in time for new instructions to come out on Monday.

And the next three blocks for Pat Sloan's A Flower Bouquet are all caught up.

Wednesday the next block in Pat's Out of This World Mystery Quilt was released and landed finished on my table.

Being all caught up on everything so early in the month has me thinking it's high time I pull another UFO out to finish.  The big question being which one?

Speaking of UFO's I'm going to take my inspiration from last week's party and get to work.  Last week, Janice from Color, Creating and Quilting pulled out and finished piecing a UFO from a few years ago.

She created it using charm packs and it is full of cowboy fun!  This UFO isn't the only thing she's wrangled up over there either.  Oh, no.  She's been building quilty houses like a mad lady that will leave you feeling the rainbow.  Make sure you click over and check out all the fun stuff she has going on.

Next up we have Vasudha at Storied Quilts and her UFO finish of Hopscotch Tiles.

Not only did she celebrate an April finish of her Island Batik challenge quilt, April Flowers, she also claims a One Monthly Goal finish of piecing this UFO from over two years ago.  I LOVE how those greens and burnt oranges pop against the white background.  Make sure you hop over and congratulate her on finishing up both projects!

Now it's your turn.  Let's see what you've been up to this week.  Link up below and tell us all about it.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Come back on Monday and I think we will have an episode of As The Quilt Turns or maybe The Cut and The Pieced.  Will I catch the attention of the Island Batik strip set?  Will I be able to convince it to let me chop it up and grow it into something bigger?  Or will a ten inch stack steal whisk me away?  You'll just have to come back to find out.

Oh my, oh my. That strip set is gorgeous. Good for you, getting caught up on your QALs. I'm basically ignoring mine, for now! I am happy to finally -- finally! -- have a UFO to link. Have a great week, Tish!

I love the strip set and glad you have caught up - its great to do it isn't it? I feel I have a better pace at the moment, and am pleased, and I bet you feel the same way. Hope the rest of your weekend is fun and that there is some sewing time for you!

That strip set is cheery and vibrant. Your blocks are looking wonderful.

Reading about you getting caught up on all your QAL's inspired me to actually get some sewing done today (I had kind of hit a "I don't feel like sewing" wall today). I didn't get a lot done (one piece of applique) but I DID sew! Thanks for feauturing me in your blog post today! You have a lot going on!
