Finally, a Friday Finish!

I knew it had been a while since my last UFO Finish... but I didn't realize it was over a month. I finished Charm Quilt #3 on Friday, August 9th and celebrated my Summit of UFO Mountain HERE. Little did I know that I would linger there for several weeks piecing UFO tops and apparently enjoying the view!

It felt SO GOOD to put Mr. Juki's walking foot on yesterday and quilt something. This is Charm Quilt #4 which will be donated to Project Linus. I like the alternating layout of the charm squares with the light background print.
I quilted it with white Aurifil thread and mixed in both of my favorite walking foot quilting methods by grid quilting along the vertical seams and adding a curvy line down the middle of each vertical row. I found some SpongeBob flannel from 2002 in my stash closet that I think must have been intended for pajama pants for our son. Time flies... and now it is backing. And, proving that fabrics ARE getting narrower these days, I didn't have to piece it!
Favorite fabrics? The tropical fish and the fanciful buckets from the photo above for starters. I love all of the charms in this section too, especially the cats (of course!).
The next photo might make you laugh.
Yes, that is about a 10" stack of 6.5" charm squares from years of swaps and trimming my scraps! There will be many more happy charm quilts in my future.

  5. I have been following your blog for a few months now and have been so inspired by all of your finishes! This little I Spy is so much fun, I'm sure a child will be happy to get it, and you have one more UFO all done. Win-win!

  9. Another cute charm quilt! You did a beautiful job! I like the quilting. The wavy line adds just a bit of whimsy! Great donation quilt! Congrats on another UFO finish and thanks for linking up!

    P.S. you can barely squeak 40" of fabric out of a supposed 44"-45" wide piece. I totally agree that the width is shrinking.
