UFO's & WIP's....

ya' know...  it's always nice to see those piles dwindling down!  There's a great joy in knowing that you are FINALLY getting some things done and off your UFO/WIP list(s)! 

My daughter has been asking for a quilt since just before Christmas.  She knew what colors she wanted but everytime I tried to get her to select a pattern...  she would "like" several but never just had that one "jump out" at her.  Until, that is..........  she seen the Kalidescope quilt done by Allison over at Cluck Cluck Sew

I started cutting the pieces Friday evening - everybody in our house had plans Friday night so the dog and I stayed home together!  He snored while I cut fabric!  lol  I was up early Saturday morning (as usual!) so I started assembling the pieces into the squares needed for this project.  Then sewed the squared into rows.  Now that all the rows have been sewn together and the primary part of the top is finished, I need to add a border (maybe two) then it will be ready to layer, baste & quilt!

I have a few pics but don't want to share them just yet.  I noticed last week when I was finishing my nephews quilt that I do pics of the tops and share them before they are finished but  never share the finished product!  So I'm trying to get into that habit....  we'll see how long that lasts!  lol

Once my daughters quilt is finished, I need to get the two done for my nieces (yes, they are already started!) and then I need to finish Hannah's....  once those 3 are done I have one that's been patiently waiting for about 4 years to be completed....  I'm ready to get it out of the way!!!  It's a photo quilt for someone - but I can't tell you who it's for incase they read my blog!  lol 

So, with that said, I need to get back to work!  Have a great Sunday!
