UFO Busting #65

I am celebrating another finish over here.  A small one, but they count just as much as the big ones!  Last week I wrapped up working on the June Island Batik Try It! challenge.  My poison of choice was the quilt as you go method.  I can definitely see why this is a desirable method with quilters.

Once you finish the piecing, you basically have a finished quilt!  No UFO's here.  You can read more about my experience with QAYG and the mini quilt Scottish Thistle here.

Try It! Scottish Thistle

How do we grow in life if we do not try new things?  This month that is exactly what Island Batik challenged us ambassadors to do.  I had to put some thought into this one...what exactly would I like to try?  My first thought was English Paper Piecing and hexies, but as June rolled around I just wasn't feeling it.  Then it came to me QAYG or quilt as you go.

UFO Busting #64

I think I have finally emerged from my sick state and joined everyone in the real world.  A head/chest cold in summer is never fun, but I guess someone has to give those germs a place to live and die.  I may have been down, but I did manage to celebrate two finishes and start some new projects.

Heats on Fire my Make it Modern challenge quilt for Island Batik saw it's finish.  Quite frankly it still has me all hot and bothered.

Passion Flowers Fat Quarter Fun

A few months ago, while part of the 2018 Aurifil Artisan team, I was offered the chance to play with fat quarters from Anna Maria Horner's Passion Flowers line of fabric.  Oh my yummy goodness!

Make It Modern-Hearts on Fire

First up a thousand apologies that this post hasn't gone live until June 3rd.  The challenge quilt was actually finished before the end of May but really icky weather and a head cold that came from no where really put the post on hold.  Hopefully all the quilty fun makes up for it.

UFO Busting #63

What did I learn last month?  May waits for no one.  Happy first of June!  May was a month of party and celebration with little time for sewing.  I'm hoping June brings some catch up time and slower days.  First up, the daughter is all graduated and stuff!
