UFO finished/Sunday Progress Report/Weigh in

Here’s the last top finished this week – it’s also a UFO finish and completely from stash so I’m very pleased with this one! I love the texture the Bubbles pantograph gave it and think I made the right choice for quilting. I left this photo large so you can click on it to see a better view of the quilting.

Instructions can be found at my MaryQuilts.com site for anyone interested.

So my progress report is:

  • 2 tops quilted – goal of 10 before the end of August met
  • 4 quilts bound
  • Wonky Tree blocks assembled into a small top 
  • My Stash used total goes up to 77.5 yards (includes completed quilts only)
  • No fabric purchased this week

I also did my weigh in this morning since I’ll be leaving tomorrow for the airport at 3:30AM!! I have a loss of 1.4 lbs for a total of 7.4 lbs in 3 and 1/2 weeks. I’ll be traveling most of the next two weeks so I hope I can avoid gaining any back – we’ll see!

    Oh my gosh, I love that quilt! I hope you have a great trip.

  • Nancy:

    The quilt is beautiful: I particularly like the top border. It makes the quilt a bit more unique: although, the backgrounds on the hearts make them pop, too. This is definitely one of my favorites. Nice job

  • carmen:
