Good Morning! It’s week 9 of the Finish Those UFQs 2020 Challenge! It’s the last week of the year. I can’t believe this year went so fast. I’m hoping 2021 will be a better year for everyone!
I hope you were able to make some progress on your unfinished quilts! Just because this challenge is over, doesn’t mean you can’t keep working on your lists! I didn’t get as much check off the list this year as I had hope. With the doing school from home, this year has been way different than any year before. I’m hoping to finish my list before the end of 2021!

LAST WEEK: I did it! I finished my Rainier Echoes Quilt! It feels good to check a quilt off the list. I’m happy I decided to quilt it by outlining the design. I love the texture and extra design element it gives it.
THIS WEEKS GOALS: As I look at my list, the next step for all of my quilts is basting. Basting is my least favorite part of quilting. So that is one reason I have a pile of quilt tops. So I just need to decide with one to go for. I’m out of spray baste, so I need to either order a curbside pick up order or go with pin basting…. decisions decisions! You know, I hate making decisions. I have 5 quilts left on the list, 4 are throw size and 1 is a baby size. If my Joyful Meadows quilt backing is in my mail box, I will do that one. If not, I think I will work on my throw size KaBam Quilt.
Good Morning!! It’s week 8 of the Finish Those UFQs 2020 challenge! I hope you are making lots of progress on your list. I plan on focusing on my list for these last 2 weeks this month! But you can continue working on your list for however long you would like! Let’s get some of our quilts done!!

LAST WEEK: I did lots and lots of quilting on my Large Throw size Rainier Echoes Quilt. This is a 80 x 80 inch quilt. I typically will do straight line quilting from top to bottom, when it’s a larger sized quilt. But I had a lot of fun outlining the design in the baby size Rainier Echoes quilt I made, so I wanted to do the same thing with this large throw. It sure too me a lot longer than I was thinking it would. But I’m so happy I did, I love the extra design element it gives the quilt.
THIS WEEKS GOALS: I am hoping to add the binding and hand stitch it to the back of my Rainier Echoes quilt this week. Since its the kid winter break this week, I’m not sure how much sewing I will be able to squeeze in. So if I get the binding all done, I’m not sure which quilt I will tackle next on my list!
Good Morning it’s WEEK 7 of our Finish Those UFQs 2020 challenge!! We only have a few more weeks left in this year, it sure has gone by fast. I’m hoping to chip away at my list some more so I can make room for some new projects in the new year!

I didn’t get much time to sew during the week, so I took some time during the weekend to finish my Joyful Meadows Quilt top! My original Joyful Meadows Quilt was made with all solids and someone asked me if I ever make quilts with prints. It has been awhile since I’ve made one with prints, so I wanted to share with you all what this quilt would like in some prints. I had been saving these Cotton and Steel fabrics for a few years, and I thought these would be perfect for this quilt! I love how it turned out!
THIS WEEKS GOALS:
My goal this week is to hopefully finish quilting my Rainier Echoes Large Throw quilt. It is so close to being done!! I think if I just focus on this quilt, it may be doable!
I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped. But I’m still happy that I made some progress on my second Joyful Meadows quilt. One block done and 8 more to go! I have all the pieces made, they just need to be sewn together. I’m using some older Cotton and Steel fabrics. I love how they are looking together!
