Have you made any progress this week? I know it can be a busy time for people. Having my kids home for winter break makes it so I have less time to sew. But I’m enjoying spending extra time with them.

This week the kids finished making their Aprons! We had cut them out during their Summer break, other projects got in the way. So we finally finished them up this week. The kids had a lot of fun making these. They picked out their own fabrics and did all the sewing. I helped with ironing and pinning.

 

We also had some fun making some bread from scratch. Our first loaf didn’t turn out too good. So we tried again an our results were much better! I love baking in the winter time and it fills your house with yummy smells!

This week I found some time to baste and quilt my baby size Left The Nest Quilt! I love using spray baste. It makes the basting step go way faster! I used Sulky KK 200 Temporary Spray. I love that there isn’t any overspray left on my tile floor.

I decided to go with a large zig zag pattern for the quilting. I used my seams as a guild. I quilted about 1/2 inch from all the top flying geese. Then I started quilting in between each of those lines to make the lines all about 1 3/4 inches apart.

The last project I worked on this week was my new quilt pattern the Flower Party Quilt! I made some progress and am close to having some blocks done! Yay!!

Finish Those UFQs 2020!
Since we will be postponing the next quilt along in my quilt along until probably March of 2020. I’ve decided to extend the Finish those UFQs into January of 2020! Yay! More time to get our boxes checked off our list!

This week I was so happy to finish up my Happy Block Swap Quilt! It’s been pouring outside, so I haven’t been able to get a full shot of the quilt. Once the rain lets up I’ll take one.

You can find the FREE PDF block patterns here!

I love how the floral binding looks on this quilt! It makes me want to use floral binding more often!

I started working on my NEW Quilt Pattern, the Flower Party Quilt. I’m using these gorgeous Road Trip fabrics designed by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics.

My goals for this week is to complete some of the Flower Party blocks. Also, I would like to baste and quilt my baby size Left The Nest Quilt! My kids start winter break tomorrow, so I’m going to need to manage my time wisely to get some sewing time in!

This week I finished my Happy Flower Garden Quilt!! I had made this quilt top during the Quilt Along in 2018. It feels good to check this one completely off my list!! It’s been super overcast and rainy here in Western Washington this past week, so I haven’t had a chance to take a full length photo yet.

Next up this week was finishing the quilting on my Happy Block Swap Quilt. I decided to go with a slight wave from top to bottom, then I echoed that way arrows the quilt in 1 inch lines. I didn’t have much quilting left to do, so I was also able to make the binding, attach it to the front and I started hand sewing it to the back.

Next week my goal is to finish the binding on the Happy Block Swap Quilt.
I would also like to get my baby size Left the Nest quilt basted and quilted!

I received the background fabric in the mail for my next Quilt Pattern, I think I’m going to call it Flower Party Quilt! I’m really excited to share this one with you all. It might be a contender for the next quilt along that will start in January 2020!

I’m using Wasabi by Kona Cotton for the background and the main colors will be this gorgeous Road Trip fabric by Alison Glass.

Welcome to week 6 of the Finish Those UFQs! How did this week go for you? Did you get to check off any boxes?

Sometimes you have those weeks that life just gets in the way and you don’t get to complete everything that you would have hope to! That’s what kind of week I had!
I was able to do an hour hand binding on my Happy Flower Garden Quilt on Monday morning.

But Tuesday my intestines started giving me trouble. I have an autoimmune disease called Crohn’s Disease. It causes inflammation in my digestive track which can lead to scar tissue. I have a lot scar tissue in a couple areas of my intestines, so when my Crohn’s decides to inflame it can cause an intestinal blockage. Which means I have extreme abdominal pain and most the time I can’t keep any food or liquids down. Usually when I get an intestinal blockage it clears up after 24 hours and I start feeling better. For some reason this one took a lot longer.

So even though this week I had planned to finish my Happy Flower Garden Quilt and finish quilting my Happy Block Swap Quilt, I ended up laying in bed all day Wednseday and Thursday, with no energy to do anything.

Thankfully I am feeling better today and hopefully will be back eating some solid foods soon! I went in for some lab work today, so hopefully my doctor can find a better treatment plan.

So my goal for this next week is to finish my Happy Flower Garden Quilt and finish quilting my Happy Block Swap Quilt!! I hope my intestines don’t get in the way again!!

Join me Monday at 1 pm for a Live Chat in the Facebook Quilt Along Group! I’d love to hear what you all have been working on!

What did you work on last week?? Let me know in the comments!

Join my Happy Cloud Creations Quilt Along Group and post your progress photos and see what everyone else is trying to finish up!

Happy Quilting!
