My New Year's Resolution to get some of my UFO's done seems to still be producing some results.
I finished Hidden Treasures. This long overdue UFO is ready for the quilter.
After digging around in the piles of unfinished projects I found this piece. I think it is time to get it quilted. As I am not a free motion quilter I think some straight line quilting in varied angles might do the trick on this piece and produce a nice wall hanging.
Last year I decided to work on de-stashing my older fabrics. Older meaning some of a good 20 years or more age. My scrap bins were full so I though to try to deplete some of them. These 3.5 inch squares have actually made a pretty good dent in some of my scrap bins.
I am amazed at how fast things have progressed in just two afternoons on this project. Plus I have emptied an entire scrap pin as well. The four middle rows are done with 19 blocks. I like it and think it is really cheery. It will be given to my guild's charity division when the top is done and a prepped binding is done for it.
Last week I posted a couple pictures of my daughter's baby peacocks. They are now big enough to be allowed out for a bit of free roaming around their property in the afternoons. Note the one female out of the four males she has is leading the pack. We know who is boss now. The Ginny hens joined in the parade. They live with the peacocks very peacefully in their fenced in yard.
I am in love with that Flying Geese Quilt!! I think it would be so much fun to quilt! Good luck with all your UFO's...ReplyDelete
The flying geese quilt is really stunning! And I love how you are using your scraps. I swear no matter how much I use out of my scrap bins the quantity never decreases.ReplyDelete
Congratulations, Hidden Treasures is a beauty! Love your half star too, very prettyReplyDelete
That Trip quilt is looking AWESOME!! I bet you must be SEW happy to put those fabric to work.ReplyDelete
Hi Donnalee! I agree with Jayne - I adore that flying geese quilt top. How could you ignore it?!! I can hardly wait to see it all quilted - I wonder what size it is? Yay to wrapping up Hidden Treasures and to get a great start on those 3.5" squares. I had to chuckle about the female leading the pack. She's leading because she can read a map or knows to ask directions. HAHA! Thanks so much for linking up today! ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Love the colors in your project! I tried to avoid the scraps, but they taunt me!! LOLReplyDelete
Love your peacocks. What wonderful pets!ReplyDelete
Hidden Treasures is a MUST FINISH soon if you ask me. It is wonderful.ReplyDelete
I think straight lines will be a wonderful choice for the geese and half star quilt. I just saw such a quilt done in that manner on a blog somewhere and really loved how it finished!
Ohhh I like them - I really like that Flying geese one!!ReplyDelete
Your quilts are beautiful. I wish I had that gene. Sadly I don't. I sure appreciate those that do.ReplyDelete
The peacocks are most adorable. I love to watch the males show off too.
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

What a neat combo of the flying geese and the star.ReplyDelete
That half star is a terrific little piece - strong and bold like your daughter's female peacock. Love them both!ReplyDelete
It never ceases to amaze me what comes out of leftovers. Lovely work.ReplyDelete
Love your piecing and quilting work. The geese quilt really caught my eye.ReplyDelete
What a great quilt to help clear out your older fabrics. I’m always amazed at how long some scraps last.ReplyDelete
