UFO Busting #148


Happy Saturday!  Welcome back for some more celebrating those UFO's we finish and those things that distract us from what we should be doing.  Today I am celebrating a finish that didn't become a UFO.  I actually finished it in normal time.  That's practically unheard of for me.  The the pattern is Building Blocks by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.   This is the "real" quilt to my "place holder" quilt.

You can read more about this finish and check out more quilty shots here.

This week I've been super focused on quilting a quilt for Cheryl's upcoming blog hop in July.  

I have my quilting plan and I have started officially executing it.  I am exactly in the "what the hell was I thinking with all those match stick lines?" phase.  I still have a long haul ahead of me, but I think the result will be some super yummy background least that is what I keep telling  myself.   

Now let's have a look at last week's party.  First up we have Barbara at Bastelhexe's Kreativecke and her Scrap Happy quilt top finish.

I just love this quilt top!  Look at all the color!  Because she decided to make her blocks a little smaller, Barbara had to get creative with the quilt corners and, man oh man, did she do an amazing job.  Make sure you stop by and congratulate her on this finish and her creative fix.

Next up we have Gretchen at Gretchen's Little Corner and her Ancient Star Variation quilt top and wowsers is she seeing stars!

You might look at this top and think, beautiful and done.  Nope more decisions are being made on borders and I am super excited to see what she chooses!  Make sure you swing by to read Gretchen's thoughts on what her next steps may be.  What ever she chooses it will only add to the beauty of this one.

Now it's your turn.  Link up below and tell us all about what you've been into this week. 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Those matchstick lines look great but I'm sure they are a pain to quilt so many of them. The results will make you very happy though, happy stitching!

The matchstick lines are fabulous and will be worth it. Lots of fun quilts to show, too, from your readers!
