I’m mudding the waters.

Yup, I am.  In my last post (HERE),  I said that I had 2 finishes.  That is still correct.  But, I attributed both finishes to my UFO list.  That is incorrect.  One (Square Dance) was started this year and the other (Kangaroo) was a UFO.  Now to achieve my PHD in 2018, I did need to finish Square Dance, but Kangaroo was an option out of all my UFOs.  All of this to say, I have 9 UFO’s to finish for my PHD in 2018.  SEW … hopefully the muddy water’s are clear again!   Image result for smiley face clip art free

  1. Fireburst: this a mystery from “Tish’s Adventures in Wonderland.”  I thought I was done the step for this month (the flying geese), but when I went to her blog to get the URL, I realized that it said “Flying Geese and Square in a Square.”  Guess I’ll have to make the square in a square – right?


2.  Charm Star:  This UFO from 2013 is now quilted.  I did “C’s” in the squares and used my ruler for the straight line quilting.  I must say that now that I’m used to using the ruler for straight lines, I’m WAY faster with it!  (I know, practice, practice, practice … it’s true!)

My next step is to add the binding to this little quilt. Hopefully, I can show a finish on my next post.


Want to make a 3 ring zipper pouch?  Check out Sew Can She for the tutorial / pattern. Sorry, no picture as I didn’t ask Caroline for one.  But seriously, do check it out!

  2. Love the fabrics you are using for Fireburst. Sometimes the quilty accounting can get confusing, but it’s all good no matter what list they come off of. You are doing so well this year. Congrats on all the progress.

  3. Such a cute little Kangaroo quilt! And the quilting is just beautiful! I checked out and pinned that cute three ring binder pouch- it would be a perfect gift for my student teachers! Thank you for sharing!

  4. It will be fun to see your fireburst quilt when it’s finished. I’ve been following along with Tish’s QAL but didn’t participate. Those batiks are fabulous!

  5. Hi Gail! I love the fabrics you are using in Fireburst. Those leaf outlines remind me of fossils and those greens look so great with both of the two other prints. This will look fabulous when it’s all together. Happy Monday! ~smile~ Roseanne
