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!

I’m working on finishing my Celtic Solstice before the next mystery comes out. I made mine 9 blocks by 9 for our queen bed. Then decided I wanted to finish out the points that looked unfinished in the outside row so I am adding a third on a block all the way around. That and the border and it’ll be done. Need to finish some Christmas present quilts for two of my Granddaughters too, but they’re not Bonnie quilts.
Yay!!! I love when this happens. Picking up an old UFO and going, “why in the world didn’t I just finish it up?” So glad it’s getting done. Looks like it will be gorgeous!
