UFO Busting #84

The holiday week blew past me and before I knew it, it was party time.  I forgot the party.  I blame the turkey coma and precious family time.  But this week we are back at it, party on!  I did celebrate a finish last week with my Island Batik Tool Time challenge quilt.

For the challenge, I made a French Braid quilt using the Creative Grids Trapezoid Ruler and the Black Pearl line of fabric.  I love this quilt so much!  You can read more about it here

I finished the quilt just in time to send it with my daughter back to school.  She snapped a quick shot and sent it to me, to let me know it will be keeping her warm and reminding her of home.

Now it's full speed ahead with the last challenge of the year, 3D.  I've already started chopping and sewing the little wall hanging together.

I'm feeling pretty positive that you will find this one as cool as I do.

Now lets check out a few projects from our last party.  First up we have Karen at Karen's Quilting who was as busy as a squirrel gathering nuts for winter!

In between holiday prepping (there are pies to be made!) and quilt binding, Karen was diligently working on assembling the blocks for her color challenge quilt.  This is a scrap-a-licous quilt for sure!  Make sure you hop over and tell her how much you love these blocks and check out her cool Christmas cactus.  I'm betting she probably celebrated a post holiday finish last week, when she finished the binding on her Crossroads quilt.

Next up is a post that makes my heart happy.  We have Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting who was doing some serious tote sewing...but not alone.

Nancy was lucky to have a sew date with our friend Wendy at Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life.  I have to admit I'm a bit envious.  I want a play date with Nancy and Wendy!  I also want to learn to make totes.  Make sure you visit Wendy and check out all the fun she was having.

Now it's your turn.  Link up below and tells us what you've been into this week.

In my absence last week, while returning my daughter to school, there was an adventure.  Well, there was something (not sure what) that had traffic backed up for miles and miles on the interstate that forced us to take the scenic route back to school.  We may have got a bit lost misplaced but it made for some beautiful scenery.

It made me realize, I need to make more landscape quilts.  Life is just beautiful.  Stop and enjoy the mountains.

I love her quilt and sorry for your driving adventures. Your 3D project seems to be coming along nicely, mine is still in the thought process.

Thanks for the share, Tish! Love the look of your beautiful quilt on your daughter's bed at college. I hope she's having a great time. Those backroad adventures are sometimes the best - maybe not so much being lost, but then again? I've put my tote to good use and I'm loving it. It was a fun pattern, especially spending the day with Nancy. Nothing to link up this week, and I must've missed last week.

It's so great seeing quilts being used! I'm glad your daughter has that beautiful Black Pearl braid with her at school. What lovely scenery for your drive!

Life can easily pass us by. Thanks for the reminder to slow down. Blessings!
