In the last few weeks I have been trying to focus on working on some of those projects that seem to have fallen by the wayside. Yippee Skippee for taking care of my UFO's :) (Well a little bit at least, I still have lots of "secret" projects with "deadlines" so I squeeze these in when I can ) So . . . . .
I started looking up the 8 patterns from Block-a-palooza that I still have left to complete and quickly realized that I just don't see it happening. So, I figured, maybe it is time for it to take a new direction. Like a baby quilt direction. I can do one block, some sashing, and boom, a spring time baby quilt is born. I even thought of doing a plain block so that I can appliqué a name in the blank spot, what do you think???? I am hoping to finish this one up quick right after I make a final decision on the finish look :)
I finally pulled out my Happy Quilting Quilt-A-Long top and got it all basted up this weekend before going out of town. Yesterday I got it quilted. I tried another new little design, Loops and flowers again but this times the flowers have a cute little center :) I really liked the way it turned out. All I have left is to attach the binding :) Then I can post it for Blogger's Quilt Festival. (Ya, I am cutting it close :) Almost Done, Yippee Skippee!!
And remember that stack of HST's left from the the Happy Quilting Quilt-A-Long. Well I turned them into an adorable pieced rag quilt. I even made a tutorial for it. Just in case you missed it, you can click on here to find the link :)
I still have the Sugar Pop strips just waiting to be pieced and the holiday charms waiting to be turned into table runners. Those will be the next projects I squeeze in (just as soon as I finish up these other 2, I refuse to send them back to the pile unfinished :)
