How many quilting UnFinished Objects do you have? Do you know?

I used to post a quarterly list of all the projects here on my blog. I loved it. I could see everything in one place and that meant that I didn't have hidden projects out of sight, out of mind. Nothing surprised me when I opened a closet or cabinet that hadn't been opened in a while. It's been just over two years since my last Finish Along blog post. I'm not really sure how many projects I have now... and I've maybe forgotten about some of them.

I had been wanting to resurrect the list, posting it regularly on the blog again. Maybe quarterly, maybe just twice a year. And then Bobbie (of The Geeky Bobbin) reached out to invite me to join her UFOvember Blog Hop.

Huzzah! I've signed up to share a finished UFO with you on November 13 for the Blog Hop alongside 29 other quilters who will be sharing about their UFO inventory, and how they are resuming, reworking, and rehoming those UFOs this month!

So in the next few days I'll be working on updating my list which I'll share later this month. And I'll be back to share my finish on November 13.

Here's the amazing lineup of participants. Bookmark this page so you can get back here to visit each day's new blog post. The first four posts are already live. Enjoy!

Please share how many UFOs you have in the comments and feel free to make a guess at how many quilting UFOs I currently have. ;-) When I update my list I'm going to try to include the age of each project. So if you want to guess how old my oldest UFO is, feel free!

Welcome to my stop on the Scrappy Improv Quilting blog tour!

In 2018, I created Citrus Beach Retreat, my version of Kelly Young's Beach Retreat pattern from her first book, Stash Statement. Today I'm sharing a mini quilt from her latest book, Scrappy Improv Quilting. Both books are available from Kelly's Etsy shop or from large retailers like Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

One of my favorite ways to use fabric scraps is to sew them together into what I call a Scrappy Slab. My newest guild offering is a live lecture/demo on Zoom demonstrating my technique. In August, during my presentation for Tuleburg Quilt Guild, I sewed together my turquoise scraps which was the beginning of this quilt.

I chose to make Positivity, a 20" x 20" mini quilt. Mine features turquoise and navy scrappy improv paired with Kona Peapod for the background. I quilted with a variety of colors and weights of Aurifil in irregularly spaced vertical lines.

 

Kelly's book features 22 mini quilts in a variety of styles, all using her scrappy improv as the feature of the design. This is such a great way to get some of your fabric out of the scrap bin and into a finished quilt! And the book is packed with tips and tricks for every step in the quilt making process.
