UFO Busting…

Yahoo…another one bites the dust!!  Finishing off this UFO feels mighty good…it’s been like an albatross around my neck…

This one is an oldie…going back FIVE years!!  Every time I opened the cupboard door it was SCREAMING to get finished…but I always pushed it back in…and quickly closed the door!!


These little hand embroidered reindeer were a traveling project way back when we first started this Snowbirding gig!


And then they sat and sat in a tote with the fabric…

I still love the Lynette Anderson’s whimsical reindeer fabric called Magical Christmas… with a few other prints tossed in…


The hand appliqued reindeer is finished…and the whole top is now ready for quilting…which will get done on the mid-arm when I get home!!  Oh..YES IT WILL!!


I changed the pattern up a wee bit…all of the stars have embroidered reindeers…and all the square blocks finish at 4”.

P1260199P1260200I’m sure if you dig you can find a FREE copy of this pattern  on the internet!  I found mine in Henry Glass’s Free Pattern section….mind you that was five years ago!!


Have a FUN FRIDAY and Happy Stitching!!~P


  1. This is really a cute quilt - love the little reindeer in the star centers. CUTE!

  2. This is just as cute as it can be!
    Love it.

  3. So cute! I tried finding this pattern on Henry Glass but it is no longer there! Any chance of sharing? I love that reindeer! So glad you are finishing up your projects. Keep it up! K-

  4. It looks wonderful! Congratulations! :0)

  5. Fantastic to get an old UFO completed! It is really cute!

  6. That is really cute and I am glad you finished it, came out wonderfully.


  7. Paulette, your quilt is stunning...I will go looking for that free pattern! You did an awesome job!

  8. UFO busting is the best!!
    Here are my object/project categories:
    UFO--Unfinished Object is started and put away or still pinned on the design wall for years. Yes, years. Anything less than years is an IP.
    IP--In Progress is one we are working on now or in spurts. We don't want these to become UFOs!
    UQ is an IP or UFO that got to the 'needs to be quilted' stage. We need to just get these done so that they can be enjoyed.
    UB--Unbound. Why would we do this?
    USO--My biggest category, USO is not part of The Stash; a USO or Unstarted Object/project has a pattern and fabrics put together, but no cutting or sewing. A USO can become an IP,UQ, or UB, but should never become a UFO!
    And we can't forget the SNinMorB category. Maybe we have more of these than USOs? Sticky Notes in Magazines or Books?

    Keep up the good work! Glad you brought those UFOs with you so you can build your UQs!

  9. That's an awful pretty albatross. Glad you got it done.

  10. Congratulations, Paulette! Between the stars and all the snowflakes in the fabrics, this quilt has a wonderful sparkle to it. Great job!

  11. Congrats on a UFO finish. This is a very fun quilt.

  12. Very cute! Love the appliquéd reindeer! Have a good weekend!

  13. Beautiful--always a great feeling to complete UFO

  14. Love your reindeer quilt. I have some UFO's older than 5 years.

  15. That is a great quilt. I love the reindeer stitcheries and the appliqued one is so cute.

  16. I like the self-satisfied smile and closed eyes on the big reindeer.
    Nice to get a UFO moving along.
