A Few Finishes and Stash Report

This has been a busy week.  I was fortunate to have time to finish up a couple of my UFOs and even get started on a new project.

You might remember that I finished quilting another pastel 9-patch baby quilt and now the binding is complete.

 Also, I cleared my design wall of the long standing "My Blue Heaven", which is now quilted and bound!

This was started in a workshop in Sept. 2015 with Bonnie Hunter.   
My Blue Heaven 

One of my friends gave me a large package of assorted sampler blocks that were made by a lady who wanted them to be used for Quilts of Valor quilts.  I arranged them into two quilt tops and with added fabrics from my stash for sashings, borders and bindings; finished two quilt tops.   I have to give credit to my friend Mary for helping with one.  Thanks so much Mary.  I pieced a backing for one of them and tomorrow I hope to get it quilted.  I'd say this was a very productive week.  Hope I can keep my sewing mojo going for another good week.

Tomorrow I hope to have pictures of the two QOV tops.  I love what all this sewing does for my Stash Report! lol

  1. Darlene dearest.......You are amazing! Love what the quilting gave to your pastel 9 patch! I may have to make one and have you quilt it like that for me! I truly love it! You are SOOOOOO far ahead of me on "My Blue Heaven!" And YOU were the one concerned about having another project! LOLOLOLOL

  2. Mojo visited you big time!! You finished your My Blue Heaven, woot woot!! It's beautiful :) I've not done any more sewing on mine and the UFO's are out of control....sigh....I need to retire ;-)

  3. Ooo! You're making some pretty things! Love the nine patch quilt and the way you quilted curves around the blocks. Such a nice contrast to the linear design of the piecing. And My Blue Heaven is nice too. Do you have plans for these finishes? I mean, are you giving them away? I spy a familiar-looking scrappy project on your design wall too. Love seeing it there!

  4. You make me want to run to my sewing machine and start new projects! I've had my eye on My Blue Heaven for some time and my blue bin runneth over. New projects are fun, but so are finished ones and yours are both wonderful!

  5. I am so glad I got to see both of those quilts at Retreat a few weeks ago. They're beautiful!

  6. Congrats on all the progress. Love both quilts! Very pretty, both of them. Great stash busing this year too. Have very happy 4th of July holiday.
