UFO Busting!

Take THAT!!  And THAT!  KA-POW!!  Holy Guacamole, that felt good! 

You guessed it…another UFO knocked out of the tote!

This UFO felt especially good as it has been ‘hanging around’ for at least SIX YEARS!!


I hand stitched the rest of the Hexies while driving on the way down south this year…Do you recognise the fabric?…It’s called Nature’s Chorus…(I think by Blackbird.)


And stitched them on…I confess… I machine stitched the last eight down by machine.  Hand appliqueing them was just NOT going to happen…and I wanted it done!!  Sometimes a quilters got to do, what a quilters got to do to get the job done!  And you REALLY can’t tell…

I will put her on the mid arm when I get home and quilt her up…and then call it a day!


It is the perfect size for a large baby quilt…perfect for a little girl!  I think this one will be put away for a very special baby girl…and no, NO one is pregnant…THAT may take another six years!! :0)

Tomorrow is the Sands RV Resort’s Annual Quilt Show…yes, it’s our turn to display our finished (and not so finished) projects!!  I am excited to see all of the Mystery Quilts lined up on display!  I promise that it will be quite the show!  Stay tuned!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!~P
