Just my musings about life, quilting, my family and my dog.

Judy pulled #2 for May's UFO Challenge and I couldn't be more thrilled with the choice. 
Above is a photo of the quilt that I snagged from the Quilt soup website.  I almost never buy kits but I saw this quilt at Road to California in 2010 and I HAD to have it.  It was so fresh and hip looking, in fact, the pattern is called "Hip Holidays" that I bought the whole thing.  The pattern was a free download with the fabric purchase.  I don't know if it still is.   I made the top at a retreat last year and I wanted to bring the finished quilt this year.  The retreat is in two weeks! YIKES.  Thank goodness for our Tin Lizzie. 

In March I took a machine quilting class from Linda Pohlenz and Joanne Sundahl that was really fun.  I learned a few patterns that I plan to use on this quilt top.  I'm fairly confident that I can get it done in time.  Nothing like a deadline to move me to action.

Just before I hit 'publish' I happened to glance a the UFO Progress bars on the right side of my blog.  I better start fitting in some work on some of the other UFOs listed there.  For instance, if she picks the number for my yellow and blue thing, I might be in trouble.  Alternatively, I might just finish it as a very small quilt.  HMM, not a bad idea.

Check out Judy's website to see what everyone else got done on their April UFOs.


  1. What a cute holiday quilt! Glad you're going to finish this one up...

  2. Yeah, can't wait to see your finished version. Less than two weeks to go!
