UFO Busting #137


Happy cold and snowy Saturday!  I hope wherever you are, you are warm and safe or maybe even in the middle of summer.  Today I'm dreaming of quilts and hoping to quickly craw under some after a day of working.  This week, I plugged along with Moda Modern Building Blocks.  I'm on the last section!  The 36" inch block is completed and I've started on the six 6" blocks.

 As you can see, I've done fabric pulls for the rest of the blocks.  As much as I want this finished, I'm itching to stop piecing and start quilting.

To help curb that quilting itch, I got the Line Design set up and started playing with it.  You don't have to wait on me though, to give you lots of details about it, you can grab one for yourself here, in Kim's Etsy shop.

As you can see, set up is super simple which allows you to get to playtime...NOW!  Hopefully tomorrow morning, I will be posting more about my playtime with the Line Design.  My daughter was nice enough to help me shoot a few quick videos that I have posted to my Instagram page.  I can't say enough about how great this tool is to practice with.  It is a wonderful way to improve your muscle memory in the exact same way you quilt with a sit down machine.  A no waste way to improve your quilty confidence and that is what gets UFO's busted!

You know what else gets UFO's busted?  Not letting them be UFO's in the first place and that's what Sandra at mmm!quilts did with her Varadero Vibe project!  Sandra has been playing along this year with Project Quilting and has again made a super cool piece for the week's prompt/project.

If you know my dear friend, one thing you will know about her is she LOVES to collect sea glass or beach glass.  So it only makes sense when given the Virtual Vacation prompt that she make something to celebrate all of the fun times she's had collecting those beautiful rounded pieces of glass.  Stop by and enjoy some sunny beach pictures to warm you up and congratulate her on this finish.  You can read more about the process of how this piece came together with time to spare.  Not much time, but it counts!

Now it's your turn.  Link up below and show us what you have been up to this week.  Bonus points if there is sun and sand included.

Hi Tish! How are you doing? I hope you aren't getting too much snow from these last round of storms that are hitting the South. It's just a crazy winter, isn't it?! Stay warm and enjoy your new toy. I'm going to look up your videos on IG. ~smile~ Roseanne

That Line Design is interesting. Good luck with your practice.
