UFO Busting #122


Where did this week go?  Is it just me or did it fly by at warp speed??  I managed to get basically nothing accomplished.  I blinked and here we are.  I knew that I may have a baby shower coming up soon, though baby is still a little ways off.  Shower...well I found out this week it's only 3 weeks away.  YIKES! So this week's focus is what will I make?

Momma to be, found some fabric that she loves on Spoonflower and had a chair reupholstered.  So I scrambled to the site to see if I could order some.  Good news?  I can!  Bad news?  It will ship in 14-16 days.  There will be a quilt made from this fabric but my fear is it will be a Christmas quilt not a shower quilt.  

So I'm doing what any good quilter would do (or that's what I tell myself).  I'm making a place holder quilt...meaning I'm making a quilt to open at the shower.  Is that crazy?  I wanted to see if anything in the stash spoke to me and I remembered I had several packs from a Moda past line called Flirt.

I think this will make and adorable little snuggle quilt, tummy time, just love me quilt.  So this weekend, I'll start chopping to make sure this quilt is finished on time.  I feel safe sharing about the progress on here, but will probably not mention on social media until gift time.  So secrete squirrel project it is!

Now lets see what you've been up to last week.  First up we have Karen at Quilts...etc.  Karen has been quite busy!  She's starting to enjoy the transition to fall, but that's not slowing her down any.  She's got masks to make.  Hexies to hexi and some crocheting as well.  But the thing that caught my eye is her beautiful hand stitching on her Alaska Quilt.

I have been thoroughly enjoying watch has this one is taking life.  Please keep us updated!

Next up we have Kathleen at Kathleen McMusing and her entry into the Hello Fall Blog Hop.  Kathleen found herself with some left over acorn seeds and let me say she planted them and something beautiful happened.

A table runner grew!  I love when that happens!  Make sure you visit with her today to read about her process of making this quilt from some left over blocks.  If you stay long enough, you just might find a down load link to make one of your own.  

Now let's see what you were up to this week.  Link up below and tell us all about it!

thanks for the shout out on my quilt Alaska - I am enjoying the quilting process on this quilt and will be at it for several more weeks to come.

Flirt is so pretty. It will be a special place holder quilt for sure!

Your Spoonflower fabric may come much sooner...Mine came in less than a week.

Hi Tish! I'm right there with you - blink and the week is over. And yet this whole year seems to be moving in slowwwwwwww motion. I think Flirt is a fabulous substitute and will make an adorable alternate baby quilt. Mom and baby will be enjoying it in no time at all - well, certainly for the shower anyway. {{Hugs}} I hope you are take care. ~smile~ Roseanne

Thank you so much for the feature. I can't wait to see your real version, but I am sure the placeholder will be just as stellar. Thanks so much for the feature, it is so sweet!
