Welcome to my day on the UFO blog hop.
This post comes with a warning...it's very long!
"Alien's Among Us"
Here's a UFO, that I have no recollection of making, LOL!! Anyone else out there feel my pain? It was double batted with wool and was in a tote full of projects that have never been quilted. I would love to tell you just what my thoughts were on this, but it's a mystery to me. I quilted it up, using stitch in the ditch and added a few "Out of this World" appliques to fit the theme of this hop.
After that, I must have been taken over by said "Aliens" because something got into me! After finding 2 totes of quilts that were finished, but never quilted, I decided it was high time to get em done. Some were big and some were small, but in all I managed to get 15, yes 15 UFO's finished. I have to say, I am doing the happy dance here!
We were camping at Glendo State Park in Wyoming last week
and our campsite was perfect for taking photos.
These 2 big guys are Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilts.
The top one is the 2013 Bonnie Hunter Mystery "Celtic Solstice".
The bottom is is her 2015 Mystery " Grand Illusion".
This is a "Stack N Whack" that was done long, long ago, maybe 2006 or 2007???
I was really hooked on them and have fabric for 2 more. If you never start them, do they still count as UFO's? LOL!!
Don't have any idea what it was, or when I made it, but it's kinda ugly. LOL!!
I would blame someone for adding to my stack of UFO's, but I recognize the fabrics, so I must have done it. Either that or someone snuck in and stitched it while I was sleeping. Was that one of you???
When we were Island Batik Ambassadors, she asked me to pattern test this for her.
It looks like she hasn't blogged for awhile. I know she moved to the Outback in Australia, and I haven't heard from her since. Hope your doing well, out there Dione!
I actually cut a kit 3 years ago for a quilt retreat and never even started on it. Fast forward to this year, when my NY, NJ and PA friends were able to get together again for a retreat, and I actually got it finished. Not before I realized that I had forgot to cut part of the pieces! Eye roll here. I was able to find fabric that blended well enough anyway, and it's a finish.
"Ready for Christmas"
Does this look familiar? It's a Carol Swift original...I went to Vegas last year and took a class from her. I finally got it quilted at the NY quilt retreat this year too! Carol's patterns are as fun as her classes are!
You can find her pattern HERE
"Words to Grow By"
2020 BOM from Sew Incredibly Crazy and Friends.
It was so close but so far away. I added the borders and got it quilted.
You just have to see it outside to appreciate the colors. This was done in my hand dye fabrics, to long ago to remember when, but it's possibly my favorite quilt now.
This 60" x 60" beauty is hanging by my longarm, to keep it company!
"Stain Glass Angel"
I'm lucky that we live just across town from each other. She held classes for this in her basement back in 2015. I'm sure she would have a heart attach if she knew I just now quilted it!
"Moose in the Pines"
This is a "Round Robin" quilt that Bea Lee, from "BeaQuilter
" hosted back in 2015.
If your not familiar with how they work, you make your center block and the quilt label, then mail it off to the next person. Each person participating, adds a border and sends it on to the next person. You can see all the quilts on my post HERE
It was so much fun to work on all the different quilts. Unfortunately for the most part, those days are over due to the crazy prices of postage now.
Lastly, 3 miscellaneous table toppers and runner.
I'm so happy to not only see all your projects this week, but that I managed to blast through a bunch of my own as well. If the aliens who took over my body feel the need to do so again some time, feel free to "Beam Me Up Scotty". I've got a couple of totes of projects that haven't even been started yet!
On a side note here...
I had to stop and read this twice!
I found this on Etsy HERE
and think my sewing room needs this for sure.
Hope you all have enjoyed the week with us.
