UFO Busting #114

Welcome back to another week of UFO Busting.  A place where we can meet up and share what we have been tackling for the week.  I'm happy to report, probably one of the most productive weeks I've had in a while.  I have two baby quilts all quilted up and almost have them bound.

Though they are practically the same quilt, I quilted each with a different all over design.  I love swirls.  I do not like stitching them, because, well, I don't feel I'm good at it.  The only way to feel better is to keep doing them.  So expect more swirling on my horizon. 

Next up I have another baby quilt all basted together and I'm itching to start quilting it.

Every time I see these adorable little cat prints I smile.  In my head I'm seeing an all over heart motif in light teal thread.  I will probably make up a smaller practice quilt sandwich to see if I can make what is in my head work before committing.

And lastly, I'm feeling a little Christmas in July.  With the crazy hot temperatures, I can't help crave a little of the cold white stuff.  And when I think snow, I think Christmas.

So all week, I've been piecing Christmas coins in my spare time.  I love the sparkly gold detail in most of the fabrics. Once the coin sets are complete (I have two more to go), I can begin to piece the blocks.

Some simple sashing strips and this quilt is sure to piece up super quick.  I can't wait to share the quilt top with you soon.

Now let's see what you were up to last week.  First up we have Janice over at Color, Creating and Quilting.  Janice has found the perfect project to use up tiny scraps from a king size quilt she is working on.

Make sure you visit Janice to read about this cool idea and where she got the idea from.  Also, I believe she has some neck ties she would like to re-home if you are interested.

One of the many things I love about quilting, is how you can take a block and make it look completely different by just changing fabric placements, flipping lights and darks, or just any simple tweek.

At that's just what's been going on over at Sew Yummy.  Stop by and read about how she change up an already great quilt pattern she made before into something even more fun!

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

It sounds like a really productive week! I think your swirls look great, and the occasional "hook" fills the spaces so nicely.

You have got to be kidding me, Tish -- you think you're not good at quilting swirls?! I was looking at that first photo, admiring your swirls, and wondering whether you had quilted them by following a pantograph or freehand. I WISH my swirls looked like yours!!
