UFO Blog Hop Starts Today, My Day

 


I'd like to thank Joan from Moosestash Quilting for the challenge of finishing a UFO, or something along an alien theme.  I have plenty of UFO's (unfinished objects) and was happy for this challenge.  I chose to finish two projects.  A list of the entire schedule is below.

The first project I decided to finish was my friend Jandra's Boho Bag.  I had had it at this stage for several months, the front of the bag partially embellished.  Jandra loves Minnie Mouse, so that was the theme.


I finished embellishing it first.  And added the lace, beads and fringe around the front flap.


I added doilies for pockets to the lining




The finished back and front.



I delivered it to her on Friday and she loved it.  She even has it displayed in her living room.  






The second project I finished was my granddaughter Kyleigh's graduation quilt.  She graduated in May from nursing school in Boston.  I sort of had this mostly quilted when my Handiquilter Moxie decided to start doing some creative long stitches.  I took it off the frame and ended up finishing the quilting on my domestic machine while I was being sent a new part for the stitch regulator.  I gifted it to her this weekend.  The quilt was called Flourishes designed by Piece of Cake Designs.  




So those are my two UFO finishes.  Be sure and visit the other talented bloggers below, and thanks again to Joan at Moosestash Quilting.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome projects! The quilt is amazing--the applique is lovely and the squares for the border are really neat--kind of make my eyes go wonky--I like that! The boho bag is incredible with all the embellishments! Thanks for sharing!

Elizabeth Coughlin said...

The bag is really unique and cool and the quilt is gorgeous!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

that bag is cute - and the quilt is delightful!

Rebecca Smith said...

I can see why having the long-arm malfunction could turn a project into a UFO. Good job powering through to the finish it is a beautiful quilt.

Vicki in MN said...

I love, love, love the label you put on your granddaughters quilt!

Calicojoan said...

Oh my goodness Karrin, that Minnie Mouse bag is incredible. What a beautiful labor of love! The quilt you did for your granddaughter is absolutely gorgeous and that label...it's so heartfelt! I love it.

Karrin, both of your finishes are just gorgeous! I love the Boho bag - I've never seen anything like it. What a great gift for a friend, too! And Kyleigh's quilt is wonderful. The appliqued blocks with the checkerboard setting triangles are a really neat combination. I'm sure she must love it! So fun to seewhat you finished for this blog hop!

Daryl @ Patchouli Moon Studio said...

Good for you for finishing your UFO. That bag is great looking!

Hi Karrin! Your sweet label for your granddaughter brought tears to my eyes. What a sweet quilt. I am 100% certain that Kyleigh just LOVES it. Congrats to her - what a challenging career but we thank her for doing it. And TWO UFO finishes. Great job. You've set the bar high for the rest of us. HAHA! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

Carla said...

Congrats on 2 great finishes. Oh, my, that quilt label is a great addition to the beautiful quilt.

Nancy said...

Great finishes! The bag is gorgeous!

2 amazing finishes. The bag is so unique and fun. Thanks for sharing.

time4stitchn said...

TWO wonderful finishes. That purse has so many details to it to make it original and fun. Having made only one purse and it was a lot of putsy sewing so I admire your trims and additions. And the beautiful applique quilt is just wonderful; I hope your granddaughter enjoys it as much as you must have making and finishing it. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Amazing. I love that Boho bag

tink's mom said...

Your grand daughters quilt is wonderful but that BOHO Bag is over the top. I love that she is displaying it rather than using it.

Beth Strand said...

Lovely finishes! Thanks for sharing them!

Raewyn said...

Great work on both of your finishes, Karin. The Boho bag is fabulous, as is your grand daughter's quilt which I also love!
