Quilt Quazy Queens Blog Hop

Unidentified Fabric Object!

"Mommy, we have a problem!"

announced that the theme for this year's

Quilt Quazy Queens Blog Hop 

was UFOs

I knew I had  (more than) a few of these objects in my orbit 
to be finished.

I picked one that I enjoyed working on last fall and
really want to see finished.

Lady of the Lake Quilt Along Quilt

I had finished all the blocks to make the quilt along quilt last September
and was a little concerned that the fabrics I chose,
although I love the bright colors and prints,
were too overwhelming
when placed side by side.

So my little quilty kitties and I put our heads together ...

... and decided to make sashing between the blocks
with this restful solid blue fabric.

It is Lake Blue from Kona solids.

Here it is in progress on my design wall.

I will be using this for the setting triangles and outer border, too.

Fortunately for me, kind Marian said that
we did not have to have this UFO finished.
Thank you, sweet Marian.

I am not finished as of this typing.

The view out my window today.

We have 2 feet of new snow out there.

Although there is a lot more damage in our yard,
we were blessed again not to lose power.

Digging out from this type of weather event is tiring
and time consuming.

I have been sewing ...

... but my UFO is still a UFO.

I decided to make a larger quilt so I sewed six more blocks.

This is quick and easy with the Triangles On a Roll papers.

This is my WIP yesterday on my design wall. 
I am still adding sashing and setting triangles and corners.

Nutmeg has been very helpful making this quilt,
with occasional cat naps. 

My quilty kitties and I hope to have this top done on Friday.

I will update this post with our progress .
I shall keep on sewing.

Please visit all the lovely Quilt Quazy Queens today ...

Where Flowers Bloom ...

... may you be.

Carla @ Creatin' In The Sticks

has announced sign-ups for this
blog hop of beautiful blooms.

Sign up Now!

Hope to see you in our garden!

It is still full on winter here.
We have another 14 plus inches of the cold heavy wet white stuff
forecast for Tuesday.

One of nearby friends was who without power since Wednesday
just got their heat and lights back on today.

The only bloom in my home right now is this African Violet on my south facing windowsill.
Out the window, you may see one of the big broken branches down in our yard.

This hardy little plant is 36 years old.

The trunk is gnarled and twisted and woody.

But every winter it blooms.

Reminding me to find light and beauty even in the darkest times.

Hope to stay online this time.

May everyone be safe and warm and sheltered in the storms of life.
