So Many UFOs  Who knew one quilter could have so much unfinished business!  I keep finding in progress projects everywhere.  Eeeek!!

I started binding the popsicle quilt last night down at Mom's and finished up while waiting in the pickup line at school this afternoon.  Sorry the picture's so bad, but it's been dreary, rainy and nasty.  I'm beginning to think the sun has gone on vacation.

Here's my quilt model, Co Def #2.  For someone who scowls so much otherwise, she certainly finds her way into many of my quilt pictures.  I think this makes a nice sized baby quilt and I backed it with flannel to make it extra snuggly.

Mom and I took a little road trip south to Salado this morning.  I needed (yes, needed) navy blue with stars fabric for Co Def #1's airplane quilt.  And no, I couldn't get it here in town...very frustrating!  I picked up a couple of patterns and books and oh yes, the fabric, so I'm happy.  The shop ladies wished me luck on my no fabric/patterns/books buying for 2012 resolution.  Actually, they snickered and did the eyeball roll thing, but that's okay because they made up for it by giving each of us a little fat quarter pack as a Christmas gift.  Yay, us!!  If you're ever that-a-way, be sure to stop in at A Sewing Basket in Salado.

I'm linking up with Amanda Jean from Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday.

Happy quilting, y'all!


  1. I'm right there with you as far as the [many] UFOs go-- but I've put the non-holiday stuff on hold for now. The popsicle quilt came out great-- I love the bright colors. Is this one for donation? Your little road trip to the quilt shop with your Mom sounds nice-- and a good last hurrah before your 2012 resolution. Hurray for the extra FQs they included :0) Hope the sun decides to come out soon. We've been having unseasonably warm weather-- in the 40s and even 50s, but its s'posed to get colder this weekend. Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh, that is just too cute! Love it! :o)
