UFO Busting #123

Happy Saturday!!!  We made it through another week!  I know I'm excited to see what we've all been up to this week.  Like most weeks, I feel like a hamster on a wheel just running.  It feels like I've tried my hardest but not traveled far.  I did manage to piece shower baby quilt #1.

This is just an up close picture, showing the backing fabric to the left of the pink border.  With luck, it will be basted today after work and I can start quilting ASAP.

I have the fabrics together for two more presents (to be given after the shower) for the expected parents.  I have fabrics for another baby quilt using focal fabrics the mother used to redo a chair in the nursery.

I think the Prim charm pack will go lovely with the kindness people print.  However, I bought white sashing that would be next to the people print and I'm not sure what that will look like...maybe too much white?

Next, up will be a portable growth chart so that they can document as their little one grows.  I lucked into a jelly roll pack that had prints similar to other things that will be in the nursery.  And I know for a fact momma loves color.

I've put off finishing the stars and stripes mini quilt because it needed something and I believe I have it now.  Variegated thread.

This spool of Aurifil red, white and blue thread will allow me to add what I think will be a fun detail to this quilt and help break up all that white...fingers crossed anyway.  

I can think of two ladies last week that aren't crossing their fingers hoping for a finish...because they had one!  First up, fall is in the air!  I'm loving it.  Let me introduce you to Vasudha and her entry in the Hello Fall blog hop, Purple Vortex.  

I feel like purple is the forgotten color of fall.  And I love how she framed this piece with the beautiful burnt orange fabric!  If you haven't stopped by to check this beauty out, go now!  Beautiful colors.  Beautiful fabrics and amazing quilting!!!

Next up we have Maggie at Making a Lather and the quilt that started as a race between her and her daughter and 2 1/2" strips.  You'll have to go read her post to find out who officially won the race.

What I can tell you is I think her quilt finish is an eye popping winner!  This is the type of quilt fall is all about.  It just makes you want to curl up under it with a cup of warm cider and a good book...or maybe some hand stitching.  Make sure you check out this quilt's story and congratulate Maggie on her finish.

Now it's your turn.  Link up below and show us what you were up to last week.

Hi Tish! I just ordered that r/w/b variegated Aurifil thread myself - I think it will be just perfect for your project. And I cannot wait to see your finished baby quilt and especially that growth chart. ~smile~ Roseanne
