UFO Busting #101

Welcome back to another week of UFO Busting!  I do hope everyone is safe at home and doing well.  Here at the Wonderland house hold, it has been another week of hiding in the house and avoiding outside/public as much as possible.  This has created lots of quilting opportunities.  I've been working on a secret project that I can't show you, but I have managed to sneak in a few things that I can.

In honor of the social distancing we should all be practicing, I decided to pull out the Sewcial Bee Sampler and get it done!  The original plan was to work on this quilt with a few other fellow quilt bloggers, and we got pretty far.  But life happens and  we each started sewing or not sewing at our own paces.  I am finally finished and I'm in LOVE with this top finish.

I cannot wait to quilt this one, but it's going to have to get in a very long line of quilts.

Another quilt that can be considered a finished top, is a Hello Kitty quilt I started for my daughter when she was in middle school.  Yeah, that was a little while ago.

The good news is that she was as excited to hear the top was finished as she was when she found out years ago I was going to make it.  

Fingers crossed I'll finish this one (along with the unicorn quilt) before she starts having kids of her own.

This week also rolled in a new month and with a new month comes new instructions for the Out West Quilt Along hosted be Pat Sloan.  It didn't take long and two blocks, one in each color way, joined the others.

I even managed to sneak in a bit of quilting time.  I really do need to move my focus on to some finishes.  So for the first time in a few weeks I worked on the Mosaic Mystery Quilt, since that is what is under the needle.  Along with the secret project, it will be my main focus until it is finished.

Lots of ruler work for sure!

Now lets take a look at last week's party.  First up we have Helen at Midget Gem Quilts and her The Big Hug quilt finish.

This seemed like an appropriate highlight for this week.  I think we could all use a big hug right now and I'll definitely take one from Helen any day!  Helen pieced this one during Sandra at mmm!quilt's quilt along for her Grace Heart Quilt.  So let's all congratulate Helen on her finish and take her advice....stay at home!!!!

Next up, we have Sandra at mmm!quilts (speak of the devil) and her Stars Aligned quilt featured in the Modern By The Yard Ezine.  

Look at all that quilty texture!!!  Make sure you congratulate Sandra for yet another great pattern and find out how you can get your own free copy of this digital magazine.  I'm just betting you can find all sorts of yummy stuff to keep you busy during this time of quarintine.

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

Until next week, I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.  For those that are on the front lines keeping us going, a huge thank you!  Everyone else, stay inside!!!!  Keep those that can't safe!  I know you have something quilting related you can be doing...wink wink.

Lovely Hello Kitty quilt, your daughter will be delighful when it will be done! Love this pattern, I'm suppose to make one for my husband, in the blue shades. But I'm not that good with piecing and my test blocks are a little wonky ;))

Secret sewing? How come I don’t know about this.... Helen’s quilt is I just such a perfect pick-me-upset these worrying times. It wasn’t a quilt along (clearly we need to talk about our shared brain); she tested my pattern!

And thank you for the double feature! ;-)

Hi Tish! You have certainly shared a lot of eye candy and inspiration this week. Seeing Helen's Hug quilt is what we could use, and Helen is just the person to deliver one. The quilting on Mosaic looks fabulous! I love both the Sewcial Sampler and the Hello Kitty quilts. Hello Kitty really makes me smile. Take care and stay safe. ~smile~ Roseanne

It sometimes seems like priorities push priorities away...even in this time of isolation there are unexpected things that seem to take control. You are doing well my friend, and you will get to that pile of tops in good time!
