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!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

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

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!!

Welcome to the WEEK 14 of the Finish Those UFQs challenge! Did you make a lot of progress last week?

Last week I had spent all of my time working on my quilt for my new nephew due to arrive March 1st. His family baby shower was on Saturday and I wanted to gift it then.

The baby’s room is star/galaxy/star wars theme. The parents said they liked the dark side. I had a designed drawn up awhile ago that seemed perfect for this little guy! The pattern will be called KaBam (release date late March)! So for them it would be a planet exploding from a Death Star. But I also think it looks like a huge star.

Fabrics:
Blue (Background) – Figo Fabrics – Shooting stars in Blue
Red – Gingiber –Blizzard in Berry
Red/Orange – Alison Glass – Cross stitch Tiger
Orange – Robert Kaufman Fabrics – Zest in Cedar
Dark Yellow – Dear Stella – Dash Flow in Amber
Bright Yellow –Dear Stella – Moonscape in Banana

I wanted to pick an ombre of colors for the star/explosion.

IMG_8067

I used Warm and Plush cotton batting to make it a little more poofy. For the quilting I decided to outline the star/explosion. Then in the dead space I echoed the shape out every 1 3/4 inches. This gave the quilt great texture and a cool design in the dead space.

For the backing fabric I found this super cute star fabric by P&B Textiles – Winter Lights Star Dot Blue/Navy Fabric

The binding is half of the Dark Yellow and half of the Bright yellow.

I love how it turned out and can’t wait to meet my nephew and see him snuggling in it!

I hoping to finish writing up this pattern and have it release late March 2020.

Goals for this week!
Last week was the last week I had planned on focusing on finishing my UFQs. Next week I will have small bowel resection surgery to removed damaged portions of my intestines from my Crohn’s disease. So I will be out of commission for several weeks recovering. I’m hoping to finish my last 2 quilts on my Finish Those UFQs list once I have recovered from my surgery, in March.
So this week I need to work on things around the house and work on my tax return!

Feel free to keep posting your progress and your finished UFQs in my Facebook Quilt Along Group: Happy Cloud Creations Quilt Alongs!

Happy Quilting!

This week I’ve been focusing on finishing my Flower Party Quilt! Saturday I was able to finish sewing the borders on.

Then Sunday rolled around and my Crohn’s disease started acting up again. I was diagnosed in 2008 with Crohn’s disease. It’s an auto immune disease that causes inflammation, ulcers and scar tissue in your intestines. I’ve have a couple sections of intestines with a lot of scar tissue, so sometimes these areas close off and become blocked. That’s what happened Sunday. Thankfully the blockage didn’t last a long time, but recovering from a blockage takes awhile. It’s like a bruise so it’s very painful days after the blockage happens and it zaps all my energy because I can’t eat any food during the blockage and have to only drink liquids for a few days after.

Thankfully on Thursday I had enough energy to wake up early and baste my Flower Party Quilt!

Goals for This Week!

I plan on quilting and binding the Flower party quilt! Then I can take photographs for the cover photo of the quilt pattern and order some paper patterns! The release date of this pattern is set for January 28, 2020. I’m hoping I can still make this release date with being delayed in finishing my quilt.

I hope you are making lots of progress on your list!!

This week I focused on working on my Flower Party Quilt! This is a 16 inch block quilt. The pattern will be released on January 28th. So I need to have the whole quilt completed and photographed by January 20th, so I can order the paper patterns.

I finished all the blocks and I added the sashing!

I was hoping to get more done this week, there just isn’t enough time in the day!

GOALS FOR THIS WEEK

This week my goal is to add the border, baste, quilt and bind my Flower Party Quilt!

I also need to start working on my nephews baby quilt! The baby shower is only 3 weeks away! I better get busy!!

Happy Quilting,
Andrea

Welcome to WEEK 9 of the Finish Those UFQs challenge!

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!

You can continue with your current list, or you can print off and new one and start fresh for the New Year!
