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. 

Next up it was one on one time with Mosaic Mystery.

I have finally found my rhythm quilting this one.  I am using 5 different rulers to quilt it and now easily switch between them as needed like a graceful dance.  I'm probably about a 1/4 of the way done, but if I can sneak in some time this weekend, I might be over 1/2 way there by To-Do Tuesday.

You know who is more than half way done with a project?  Sandra at mmm!quilts.  She's done done.  

This beauty is a Sandra original design for the Island Batik Log Cabin blog hop.  Rumor has it (rumor started by Sandra) that this will be her spring quilt along design that she hosts every year.  I say sweet!  Count me in!  Make sure you visit Sandra and congratulate her on her finish.

Next up we have Donna Lee at DONNALEEQ busily working on items for her guild's quilt show boutique.  From the looks of things, it was a productive work day for all.

Her guild hosts sewing days where they make projects together and this month was zipper bags.  I think this is a wonderful idea.  They are already preparing for a show that isn't until 2021.  Make sure you hop over and congratulate her on a job well done! 

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

Good Morning Tish! Yay to marking for HSTs for FIVE (!!) charity quilts. I can't wait to see them finished and to see which patterns you selected. Your quilting looks fab. I was just thinking last night that it has been a while since I did any ruler quilting - I should get back to it again. Happy Saturday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne

Your quilting looks great. You'll get there. I'd love to make that pattern of Sandra's. ☺
