Friday Finishes

I have been looking for a quilting project I started about 11 years ago.  Since we have had water in our basement several times as well as emptying the basement out to put in a basement water drainage system, my older quilting projects are packed in tubs.  Yikes, were to begin!!  I found a four blocks that had writing on them but could not locate the rest of the blocks.  These were blocks that the wedding guests signed and now the wedded couple would like their quilt for Christmas.  FIRST, I had to find it.  I looked in my neutrals drawer without success, but the drawer is now organized. 

When my hubbie got home last night, he helped with moving tubs and moral support.  I found the rest of the quilt fabric and signed blocks in about the fourth tub I looked in.  I certainly don't need to buy anything this year (2014).  Just need to work on finishing all quilts that are started.  (Are you all laughing along with me yet?)  I know there are many of you that have the same thing going on in your sewing rooms.  How many WIPS (works in progress), PIGS (projects in grocery sacks), or UFOS do you have? I am scared to begin counting after looking through those tubs.  I also might be the Kit QUEEN.  My friends have called me that in the past. 

One of the nicest gifts I ever received was for my birthday, my quilty friends came and organized my sewing room.  My friend, Corry, built me a hanging book shelf.  I am ready to have another organizing day.  I think I will suggest that to my quilty friends.  We need to take turns going to each others' sewing rooms and having an organizing day for each other.  What fun we could have!!

Finish for the week, a snowmen quilt.
It was hard to get it all in one picture so I will give you several views.
Below is the top.

Below is a closer view of the edge to edge snowflake pattern using white thread.
Have a great weekend.  We are suppose to get snow here starting tonight.  I am headed out to do a little Christmas shopping with a friend.  I hope to return home to load a quilt and get another one done.  The hubbie is on vacation next week. Yippee! I love it when he is around.
Yours in quilting,


  1. Terry, what a cute quilt! Sure to bring smiles to a child this Christmas, and i love the panto you've chosen for the quilting.
    Best wishes on your WIP'S and UFO's for next year. i love the idea of having a cleaning and straightening crew over to go thru the mess and bring new ideas with them for finishing projects. What a great gift!

    1. Thanks for your kind words. Its more fun to do the work of organizing with friends. Lots of giggles and grins.

  2. Very cheery snowmen, I love ths snowflake pattern. Looks lovely.
