Well, I did get 2 of the 3 done for June. I've been pretty distracted from the UFO's by cleaning and organizing my stash. This has been a good and a bad thing. I've found so many more UFO's, it's ridiculous. At this rate, I will have UFO lists through 2019. So here are my finishes: Stash Digger
Pick & Choose

Well, May was another productive month, but I was unable to finish one of my UFO's, the Double Wedding Ring is still a UFO. I did make some serious progress on it though, I did finish getting it all cut out and I'm in the middle of piecing all of the arcs. It's gonna take another month, maybe two, or three because we'll be leaving for Alaska in July and won't return until mid August.
I did manage to start a new project and finish it though, an I Spy Quilt to take to my sons family in Alaska!
So I finished Raspberry Jam, had to piece the backing with scraps and extra blocks, but it's done!
Hi, thanks to Judy at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts for taking over the reins for Design Wall Monday! On my Design Wall I have a finished top, it's an I Spy Quilt that I found on Pinterest and fell in love with! This is 1 of 4 for my children and their families, and one to kept at Grandma's house.
On the frame, I have one of my May UFO's, Raspberry Jam, from Heather Mulder Petersons book On a Roll. I love this quilt and the fabric in it!
Today on my design wall I have an I Spy Quilt that I found on Pinterest. I have to make 3 of these (one for each of my childrens families). I will be travelling to Alaska in July to visit my son and his family and hope to have it done before I leave.
I try taking pictures of my design wall in black and white to make sure the contrast is there . . .
This was another productive month, yay! I've been a quilter on a mission, I even finished an additional UFO this month too! Here's my progress: First up is Freeze Frame, a Judy L QFAH Project from September of 2009
Next up is another Hawaiian Quilt (2 of 4)
This is my Postage Stamp Quilt that I've been working on for many years. It's huge, 116 inches square. I am gifting this quilt to my oncologist this afternoon, I hope he loves it as much as I do!
Last, but not least, I had to finish this quilt as it's for one of my twin granddaughters. I completed her sisters last month and did not want to gift it until they were both done!
I'm beyond excited that I was able to finish everything in April, I hope May is as productive. Check out what everyone else finished in April atJudy L's Patchwork Times.
I've put off this post all day because I'm ashamed, I feel like a slacker . . . only finished one of the 3 UFO's. I finished Fast Forward:
I did make progress on the other two though! I quilted and sewed the binding on the Alphabet Quilt, but was unable to hand stitch the binding to the back.
On the third quilt, the Half Square Triangle Challenge, I did manage to get the top finished. I plan to get it quilted and bound before the end of March.
I spent a lot of time in February sorting fabric by color and getting it organized in the IKEA Towers.
I also spent a lot of time going though the huge tub of scraps, ironing and starching the scraps so they could be cut into various sized squares ranging from 1.5 to 6 inches. I've made quite a dent in the tub and was able to downsize to a much smaller box!
Hope your February was a little more productive than mine. Check out what everyone else finished in February at Judy L's Patchwork Times.
