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 ...

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

GranChris said...

This is wonderful. Love the color contrast.

Marian said...

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.

Thanks for joining the hop. You turned your UFO into a brand new project. Great Save.

FunThreads Designs said...

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.

Teresa said...

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

Betsy said...

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

Elizabeth Coughlin said...

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

Linda Williamson said...

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

Lisa Marie said...

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.

Amy said...

I love how it looks with the added sashing!

Dorian said...

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 :)

Nancy L said...

Adding the sashing just makes your quilt pop. Great fabric choice.

Anonymous said...

You have a couple of very helpful kitties! Thanks!

Wow! The colors/sashing look great!

Lori said...

thanks for sharing. this is going to be a pretty quilt. I like how the light blue sashing tones it all down a smidgen. you can do this

Jayne said...

I love your colours. So pleased you have been encouraged to try and finish this project

Sharon Aurora said...

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.

Vicki H said...

I really like your on point setting.

Calicojoan said...

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! ;-)

rosemaryschild said...

Love your colors - stay warm, Susan

Tu-Na Quilts said...

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.

JANET said...

LOVE the colors and pattern for the quilt you are making! Can't wait to see it finished!

Moira said...

Great looking quilt. =)

Quilting Tangent said...

I'm with you with snow - had enough. Keep the power! Ever big wind gust you wonder.

Angie said...

Cool helpful kitty cat! I like all your projects. Have a great day! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

@lutzcats said...

Snow, snow, go away...come again another day!!!

Beth said...

I have several feline helpers. Sometimes they are not all that helpful, but they make good memories.

Susan said...

That restful blue between the blocks is a wonderful idea. I agree with you about the snow.

Sue Green said...

Very pretty! I love your fabrics.

Sandi1100 said...

Your fabrics are beautiful and look great with the light blue sashing. Your quilty kitties are adorable. I have 3 cats and 1 of them is usually up in my sewing room with me.

Farm Quilter said...

Your quilt is going to be beautiful!!!

Kathy E. said...

Kona's Lake Blue is the perfect choice for a resting eye on your colorful quilt! It's got the perfect name, too! You will be tickled, along with your kitties, when you get this one finished.

Laura said...

Love that blue sashing. Very effective.

Kathy H said...

I have always wanted to make this pattern. Your bright colors are beautiful. I like the sashing with it too.

Robin said...

I too enjoy bright colors with the same finishing problems at times :) I really like the large blocks. Good luck finishing.

OhioLori said...

I like it on point. I have some smaller triangles on a roll and never used them, I should dig it out and use up some scraps!

Amy said...

I just love the colors that you chose for this quilt top. Just so pretty. I can't wait to see it all finished up.

The light blue sashing really made your blocks stand out. Beautiful quilt!

I loved watching your progress! What a cool design you've chosen, especially the orange and dark blue blocks!

Happy to be here.

Sarah@123quilt said...

I love how bright and cheery your blocks are and I don't think they are too loud. They're wonderful!
