I think I need to buy some more of this backing fabric!

Finish Those UFQs 2020 -Week 3

Yay! It’s WEEK 3 of the Finish those UFQs! Did you make any progress last week?

Last week I was able to baste and start quilting on my Joyful Meadows Quilt! I love using spray baste because it keeps all the layers stuck together. I used a mixture of Sulky Temporary spray and Spray and Bond Basting Adhesive, because that’s what I had on hand.

I did a quick and easy outline the design type of quilting. I lined my walking foot up with the edge of my seam and followed it. I have completed the center and just need to work on the outer blocks!

I also worked on finishing up some pot holders, which aren’t on my list, but they are in my pile of to finish.

THIS WEEKS GOALS: This week I want to finish quilting this and finish the binding! I need to order paper patterns on Nov. 23rd, so I better get busy!

Finish Those UFQs 2020 – Week 2

We have finished our first week of the Finish Those UFQs 2020 challenge! Did you print out your list? Did you make any progress on your old projects?

You can download the FREE Project tracker Here:

My goal is to spend a couple hours (at least) a week on my older projects and then that will still leave me some time to work on new things also. Because its so hard not starting new projects!

Last week I finished my Joyful Meadows Quilt top! This pattern will be in my shop November 30th! This week I hope to get it basting and quilted! I’m going to use a Red marker on my list this month and a purple marker on my list next month to see how much I am accomplishing since I started this challenge!

I founds some beautiful Rainbow Stars Hearts fabric by Andover Fabrics. I think this will be the perfect backing to this quilt!

You can choose to work 10 minutes a day, 1 hour a week, 5 hours a week. It’s up to you!!

This week I worked on two of my quilts! On Friday I basted my Happy Block Swap Quilt (FREE Pattern here). I had previously been using the June Taylor Brand I had found at Joann Fabrics. They recently changed their formula and the new spray was too sticky, smelly and it got all over the place.

Someone recommended using the Sulky Temporary Adhesive Spray. I’ve seen some really good reviews about this spray so I ordered some on Amazon.
You can find it 1 bottle or 2 bottles or more!

This Sulky spray had very little smell and just the right amount of stickiness. I was able to pull my top back up and reposition it in spots. And if I touched the sticky area, it didn’t leave my hands sticky.
Very little overspray, which I loved!
Since the bottle is kind of small I used the whole thing on this throw size (which I may have sprayed too much)
I will definitely buy it again, I’ll just buy 2 cans at a time because I like to baste more than one quilt at a time.

On Tuesday I read that can and realized that the spray bonding will disappear within 2 to 5 days. So I needed to start quilting this beauty!

I decided to go with a slightly wavy line from the top to the bottom of the quilt. I marked a wave on the right side of my quilt using my Hera Marker.  Then I set my walking foot guide to 1 inch, so I could echo out 1 inch lines. I’m almost done quilting this! Yay!

I also made and attached the binding to the back of my baby sized Happy Flower Garden Quilt.

My goal for this week is to finish quilting my Happy Block Swap Quilt and attach the binding. And sew the binding on my Happy Flower garden quilt.

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