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!
Though I've been working on some of these over the past couple of weeks, by Wednesday, I had a total of seven donation quilts pieced. I predict they will not take long at all to quilt and hope to have them finished very soon.
This week also seemed like a good time to pull out some UFO's that needed to be finished in the piecing department. One that I decided to tackle was Cindy at Stitchin at Home's Medallion Quilt Quilt Along. This quilt along happened back in 2017 and for whatever reason, I got down to the last block and quit. So this week, I'm happy to say, that block was finished and this quilt was put together.
I'm not going to celebrate too loudly, because lets face it, it's still going to be a while till I celebrate it as a complete finish. However, I'll take a pieced finish any day.
Next up on the list is another quilt along that turned in to a UFO. I think I started this one in early 2018. Again due to life, it just kinda fell by the way side. It was Maureen Cracknell and Sharon Holland's Sewcial Bee Sampler. Since we are all practicing social distancing, this one seemed appropriate to pull back out.
I was happy to find I only had five more blocks to piece and all the sashing fabric is cut! Hopefully, by the end of the weekend I will be showing off another finished top.
I haven't been the only one to make use of my time at home. Carol over at Quilt Schmilt has been keeping herself from going bonkers by nose to the stone in her sewing room.
Make sure you hop over and check out all the stuff she got done.
Gail over at Quilting Gail has the right idea. She is hosting a Stay at Home Round Robin.
Last Friday, Gail posted the rules/instructions for the round robin here. I think this is a marvelous way to pass these quarantine days and bust up your stash! Anything we can do to amuse ourselves and stay out of public is a win! Thanks for hosting this fun project for us Gail!
Now it's your turn. Link up below and show us what you have been doing!
We are definitely trying to stay home at my house hold. The daughter is home from school in Virginia until the foreseeable future and my place of business has decided to shut down for our safety and our customers. After a week, I think we are doing pretty well.
Caroline doesn't seem to quite understand this whole sewcial distancing thing. Actually about five minutes after this picture was taken she started growling because I was disturbing her sleep. The nerve. Stay safe my friends! I hope to see you back here in a week!
