Quilt Quazy Queens Blog Hop


Unidentified Fabric Object!


"Mommy, we have a problem!"

When 
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 ...

  1. Triangles on a roll are one of my favorite ways to stitch triangles too.

  3. I love the fabrics in the squares, I also agree sashing would help keep them separate as it would have been quite busy without the sashing. I'm not in love with the lake blue fabric, but perhaps it's just the picture... Sorry.. not a color I would ever pick for myself... However, I do love the how its going together and being on point will really make those squares shine. I can't wait to see the finished project. I'm so happy you participated in the hop this year Pat.

  6. My vote is to sit and sew until at least a foot melts off by itself then worry about digging out:) It's going to be a lovely quilt.

  7. Unreal amount of snow - so thankful to love in SC. Hope you all are staying warm and safe. Your quilt is turning out nicely. Love the picture of the two kitties putting their heads together

  8. Beautiful! I have the lady of the lake pattern with the appliqué border and I am so intimidated by the blocks. They are tiny and look so hard

  9. Ugh the snow, I've had more than enough! Great idea to use sashing to unify your blocks. It's turning out beautifully!

  10. Your UFO is turning out to be very pretty. Wow, that is a mountain of snow. We seem to be missing all the snow storms here in Virginia. We've only had about an inch. grinnie1961 at gmail dot com

  11. Your sashing choice is wonderful! I agree that the prints are gorgeous but a bit busy before sashing. We've had a lot less snow than what you've shown but still, I'm so over winter! Good luck digging out.

  12. I love how it looks with the added sashing!

  13. I like the blue, that was a good choice with all the pretty, busy fabric. I'm glad that you can sit inside to look at the pretty snow, and have someone else do the shoveling for you :)

  19. I love your choice of fabrics. I'm fairly new to quilting so I'm not familiar with Triangles On a Roll. I guess it's time to learn something new.

  21. Oh how funny...I just printed off that pattern and was thinking about starting it. I love the bright colors in yours. Stay inside and stitch away, with all that snow, it's the best thing to do! ;-)

  23. HI, Pat,
    2 feet of snow!! That's why I now winter in Arizona. We get thousands of feet of sunshine most days. You fixed that UFO just right; the sashing really helps rest the eyes. The colors are great though.
