UFO Busting #100

Welcome back to UFO Busting!  I do apologize for the lack of party last week.  With all the craziness going on, I just kind of let the days slip by.  But we are back at it this week, with hopefully all of us doing our part to social distance and stay healthy.  I found myself with quite a bit of free time and to the machines I ran!

UFO Busting #99

Welcome back to another week of UFO Busting!  I'm getting things started off a little late this morning, but I think that has been my whole week.  This week I was excited to receive in the mail the border fabric for one of my Out West QAL quilts.  Getting that fabric meant I could finish up both block 3's.

This is my red white and blue color way, with fabrics coming from my stash and the addition of the border Moda Fabric line Mackinac Island.

To-Do #10

To-do lists.  Sometimes if feels like a game of darts.  You can see the board.  You concentrate as you contemplate and calculate your throw.  And you land each little dart perfectly in the center.  Some times you drink a beer, blind fold yourself and just start throwing.  In those instances you either hit the board somewhere or nothing at all.  As long as you had fun...that's all that matters.  My list was a total drunkin game of darts this week.  But more darts ended up on the board then the floor.

UFO Busting #98

Happy Saturday!!!  I hope you are enjoying your Saturday as much as I'm enjoying mine.  I plan to have a Sew Saturday starting with block marking at work and sewing with a friend later today.  What am I currently marking?  I'm so glad you asked.

I was able to cut out five kid charity quilts this week.  Once I get the diagonals marked for half square triangles, I should be able to easily sew all of them up in one after noon.  I'll tell you more about them (all free patterns) once they are pieced together.

March OMG

It's time to link up again with Patty over at Elm Street Quilts and decide on a project to cross of the list this month.  I'm trying really hard to finish the things I start in 2020, so this month, I want to finish two kid donation quilts that I started last month.

Currently both tops are pieced as well as the backings.

All that is left to do is baste, quilt and bind.  The first and last tasks are easy enough.  It's the middle I tend to over think and trip up on.  So with any luck, by April these two little quilts will find their way to the two small people that will need them.  

If you haven't decided on your project for the month, there is still time.  Join us all over at Elm Street Quilts and let's start crossing things off that list!

To-Do #9

Last week's list:

1) Continue quilting (maybe to half way point) on Mosaic Mystery Quilt--progress

I'm definitely not to the half way mark, but I did manage to squeak in some quilting time with this one.
