10 UFO Finishes = New Project Reward!

Earlier in the month I wrote about my UFO Attack Plan here. Since I finished my 10th UFO last week I get to start a new project <<HUGE smile>>. While I was looking through my shelf of Fabric With a Project in Mind I pulled out a beautiful collection of Faye Burgos for Marcus Brothers and brought it upstairs to make sure I still had the right project in mind. Meanwhile, as I was browsing my book collection Tucker quickly found the new fabric. Talk about a guilty "I'm not going to look at you" face!
Here it is after pressing (and de-furring!).  I'm going to make a table runner from the book "Mostly Table Runners" by Calico Printworks and it will be a gift for someone who I don't believe reads my blog.
Tucker relocated to the messy bed to continue his inspection duties. Love how he is laying in the center of a ruffled place mat on top of a garbage bag and a bit of fabric. My quilting room is at Sheer Mess Level 10 right now.
I also came across these little pretties in my UFO stash and decided I need to add them to my short list. These are nickels (5" squares) from an online swap of metallic Christmas florals. I've got about 25 more squares to piece and then I'm going to make them into a table topper. The pattern is "Autumn Stretched Star" from Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth. This is the 1st of my UFOs from this book that I've blogged about. You know how you want to make everything in some books? Well, this book is that for me.
 Aren't they crazy gorgeous?
I'm linking up to Freemotion by the River. Time to get cutting and stitching...


  1. Very nice, like the way that the white frames the gorgeous Christmas prints. Be sure to show the finished tabletopper.

  2. Ooooo love your stretched stars! I have that book too and have about 10 flags on the pages marking projects I want to make :*D Tucker is a gorgeous kitty and has excellent taste - his fur even looks a little purple next to those yummy fabrics =^..^=

  3. So much to love in this post: I have that book too, it's a good one. I love the "finish 10, start 1" rule! I'm going to adopt that one. Love those prints, especially the toile. Your cat obviously has good taste in fabric. I am also loving those blocks - now I'm thinking how I have a lot of Christmas fabrics and this might be a good way to show them off.

  4. Woohoo!!!!! Exciting to reach your 10-mark. *Love* those fabrics you're using for your fresh project. And yes - those Christmas nickels are amazing. Perfect for the next UFO session.

  5. Beautiful fabric choices for your next project! Well done on finishing 10 UFO's. Btw - there is no such thing as a 'mess' when you're getting things done. ;)

    Tucker is such a cutie. :) Give him a big squishy hug from me!!

  6. I LOVE Tucker! I am a sucker for Siamese kitties and the color purple!

  7. Those purple fabrics are GORGEOUS!!! And I can't resist metallic Christmas fabrics.

  8. You have gorgeous UFO's lol I can't wait as you each one finished... you will post them right?!?! :) The color choices are wonderful. You have a little helper like mine, I have two and they decided the best place to be of help is right in the middle of it all :)
