UFO Busting #131


 It's Saturday!  Time to see what everyone has been up to.  Sorry for the disappearance last weekend.  Things were a bit chaotic and Saturday came and went without me even realizing I missed it.  My daughter and I both had virus exposures at work and found ourselves hiding out in quarantine until tested and given the green light to work.  We were both fine and returned this week, but it did allow some time for quilting.  I decided to pull out a long term UFO...Moda Modern Building Blocks.


I'm well over half way done piecing this one.  I'm just stuck piecing a ton of 6" blocks.  I'm making it even harder for myself because I'm not following their instructions and I'm doing it differently.  I'm hopeful, it will see itself pieced before February.


When I started this project several years ago, I began collecting fabrics to use in it.  Well that monster grew into 3 small totes...okay maybe 4.  By finishing up this project, I can empty those totes!  Less stuff in the quilting room!

I've also started quilting on the T-shirt Quilt again.  I probably only have about 30 minuets more of quilting to go!


So that is the long and short of my quarantine quilting.  

Hopefully, you are still with me and everyone is having a fabulous New Year!  Link up below and show us what you have been up to.

I'm glad to know that you and your daughter are safe. Quarantine is a good time to sew ;)

That's great you got some stitching time in while waiting for your test results. And I'm really glad to hear it was a negative result!

So glad you were negative and that you had a constructive way to approach that extra time! Hooray, Tish.

Covid exposure is so scary! I am very thankful you and your daughter are both okay.

Glad your tests came back negative, Tish. Looks like you had a productive time of quarantine! I knew I forgot a link in my Friday post :-(

Ooh, I'm working on my version of MMBB again, too! You may be helping yourself by ignoring the instructions, by the way. Several members of my bee were trying to work on that when it was first released and they ended up giving up on it because they found the instructions to be unclear and/or incorrect. Glad you and your daughter both tested negative!

Hi Tish! How is your arm/shoulder doing? I hope the t-shirt quilt isn't too much for it. Nice job on returning to the older UFO. You'll feel great having that closer to completion as well as having the totes possibly out of the way. {{Hugs}} Sorry to hear about the virus scare, but how great that you were both negative. Happy New Year! ~smile~ Roseanne
