Guess who is joining us for the Bonnie UFO Challenge?

Kelli is not one to finish a UFO.  Rarely if ever do I see her pick up an old project and start working on it again.  The other day she was here and visiting with Kalissa, Kayla and I.  I went in my sewing room and pulled out her Perkiomen Daydreams quilt.  Walked it out to the kitchen and handed it to her saying, “Why don’t you pin a couple rows and I’ll sew them?”

To my surprise, she started pinning.

Then she asked how far along were we on the quilt?  I showed her.

I said it looks like close to half.  She agreed.  She said, “We have all the blocks made, right?”  I said I sure thought so.

The next thing I knew she said, “I’m not going home until I have all the blocks pinned together in rows.  Then you’ll sew them right?”  I said I would and she did.

So now it looks like this UFO is getting tackled too!!  I am so happy.  This will be our FOURTH one these quilts!!  This one is Kelli’s quilt.   We made one for Kayla, one for Buck, and one for me!

Stayed friends…another UFO is going to bite the dust.  For those of you wondering…the pattern can be found in Bonnie Hunter’s Scraps and Shirttails book 1.  Bonnie sells the books on her site….This quilt is an all time favorite of mine!

Blogger’s Quilter Festival

It is hard to believe it is that time of year again.  It’s time for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy at Amy’s Creative Side.

Silly me, I forgot to hold a new quilt back just for the show so I thought and thought and thought about what I could show you that was new.  Nothing came to me.  That’s when I decided that I actually could show you something new….

I know…I know.  You’re likely thinking, why is she showing us Quilty magazine?

The answer…that cover quilt is our quilt!!  When we were scrambling to create the quilts for our new quilt book last spring, we had to stop the sewing machines and sew this quilt as Quilty needed it!  A HUGE thanks to the people over at Moda who hurried their Bella Solids our way so we could get it made.  At the time we had no idea it would be the cover quilt.  We are tickled that it is.  That makes 2 cover quilts for us…what an honor!!

We’ll have the books available for pre-order here in a month or so.  I can’t believe this has all happened so fast….from book proposal to published book in a year is a pretty fast turn around for us!

Check your newstands for Quilty Magazine or follow this link to get your digital version of the pattern.

Make sure to stop over to Amy’s to see all the other great quilts.
