Weekly Progress 4/15-4/20/18

I have made some progress on granddaughter Kyleigh's graduation quilt.  I have the center section together.  


To take this picture, I moved the side blocks off to the side stacked on top of one another so I know where I had them placed.  Somehow in the process I have misplaced 2 blocks.  They hadn't been moved from the dining room floor, but they have disappeared overnight.  So I have to search more or make more blocks.  

I am participating  in Buttermilk Basin's  3 day A Tisket, A Tasket stich and sew-a-long and finished yesterdays block.  



I am off to pick up 2 grandsons who are going to help me with my yard work and visit with Papa.

2018 Finish-A-Long -Quarter 2

Well it has been 4 years and 2 months since my last post.  The last years I was working out of the home were just too much for me to blog too.  I have since retired last year, and am back to reading blogs and am going to participate in the 2018 FAL (Finish-A-Long) to finish up some of my UFO's.
My list is going to tend on the small side as I have the care of my disabled husband.

My list of projects for Quarter II includes the following

1)    Granddaughter Kyleigh's graduation quilt.  I can't even hazard a guess as to how old this UFO is.   This consists of swap blocks made from Laurel Burch Jungle Songs fabric and a Laurel Burch mermaid panel from Ocean Songs.  I have been working on making additional blocks to make this a decent sized quilt.  I need to get this put together and quilted by the end of May.



2)   Yellow Peony Quilt.  This has been a UFO since 10/06.  It just needs to be quilted and then I will be gifting it to one of Kyleigh's friends who is also graduating this year.



3)  Angel Wreath wall hanging and pillow.  This is one of my oldest UFO's, from when I first started quilting in 1998.  I started out hand quilting shortly after I finished it.  I have kept setting it aside, and a lot of the time it gets  hidden or things stacked on top, so I forget about it.  It is probably 1/2 quilted.  The borders need to be finished.  There is also a matching pillow top that has been quilted.  I just need to assemble the pillow.  I really want to finish this by Christmas.

4)  Make a new Boho bag.  This is one of my crazy quilting projects.  I pieced the front top of the bag about 2 years ago, and gathered together my embellishments, but never got around to embellishing it.  I want to finish this by the end of June as a challenge on a crazy quilt group I am on.
