11 Checks - UFO Blog Hop

   Welcome to the second day of the

UFO Blog Hop!

 I'm always saying,  "Check that off the list!"
Today I have 11 checks thanks to Joan at MooseStash Quilting.


Joan at MooseStash Quilting presented bloggers with the challenge to make something 
inspired by UFOs.  Are we talking Unfinished Objects or are we talking Aliens?  
Joan said it was completely up to us.
Thank you, Joan, for inviting me to join this super fun blog hop I needed this one!


I chose to tackle a big pile of unfinished objects.


The pile of quilts has been in a corner forever!
I really didn't know what they needed.  I knew 2 needed to be trimmed and binding added.
A few needed a little repair here and there.
Some (4) had the binding added with HeatnBond Lite because of deadlines (don't judge)
 and needed the binding stitched.
Now all those quilts are really
FINISHED!!!!!!
All 10!  All Finished!

The dinosaur had been cut out in February one day when I had a little helper.
Only 5 months ago - that's not so bad. 


It certainly wasn't the easiest thing to sew, but it is finished
and now this dinosaur is ready to be loved.  


The first person to say they want this book can have it!
I'll never stitch another one of these.
Seriously!
I won't make you fight over it, but mention you want it and I'll do an impromptu giveaway.

Check out all the other UFO's this week for lots of inspiration!
Here is the schedule:



It feels so good to wrap these UFOs up!
There is a happy corner in my sewing studio.

10 finishes well done, I would like to say I would have the book but I have noone to make anything from it and it would just sit in the pile of my UFO's in waiting.

Farm Quilter said...

Congratulations on all the finishes!! I have 12 grands with two grandsons who would drool over that dinosaur, so I'd love the book!!! Looks amazing!!

Calicojoan said...

11 check marks...that's fantastic. I'm so glad you got your little corner of projects cleared out and off your plate. That dinosaur is too cute, but it looks like a bear to stitch. LOL!! Thanks for playing along with me!

Elizabeth Coughlin said...

Wow that's some pile! Congrats on finishing them and your dino is adorable.

Inflorescencedesigns said...

Congratulations on all the finishes!! What an accomplishment. The dinosaur is cute but that kind of sewing is not for me at the moment. Thanks for sharing!

Karrin Hurd said...

Congratulations on all the finishes, you outdid yourself! The dino is adorable, but not something I would think of accomplishing!

Maureen said...

Well done. Now if I could make myself follow your example. LOL.

Carol S. said...

Accomplishing so many finishes is definitely a WOOHOO moment...way to go! I think we may have to have this UFO thing once a year so I can complete the rest of the pile of unfinished I have. Love the little dino and your helper! If I tried to make it, it would be in the UFO pile for sure. LOL

Boy, Joan sure got you fired up - look at that fun, finished stack! Congrats! That dino doesn't look like any fun to sew - LOL

What an over achiever! 10 quilts and a dinosaur: such a great accomplishment! Hooray for you to get so motivated! You must feel good to finish all those. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

awesome finishes!

Vicki in MN said...

Wow you are inspiration for sure having finished up all those quilts and the stuff animal!! Way to go:)

Quilting Gail said...

11 finishes! Wow!!! That's very impressive!
The dinosaur is really cute! (and no, I don't want the book, thank you!)

lynn said...

Wow but you made lots of progress. Congratulations. I wish i had your oomph.

Daryl @ Patchouli Moon Studio said...

Wow Carla, you got so much finished! Good going.

Rebecca Smith said...

10 finishes has to feel amazing!

tink's mom said...

A very impressive number of completions. I wish I understood why we all get so close to a finish and then stop. I also have at least one faked binding that I never considered a UFO. I guess I need to reassign it. Dino is very cute but looks like a bit of a pain to have started let alone finish.

Carol said...

Wow, you have to get the prize for finishes, especially with that dinosaur toy included!! Way to go!

Home Sewn By Us said...

Hi Carla! That is one darn cute dinosaur but if you're not willing to make another one from the book, no thank you. I have enough stress in my life without taking on some sewing stress. GREAT JOB finishing TEN projects. Geez. Way to set the bar high! Good thing I didn't read this until today - I was trying to keep up with the Monday folks who all seemed to share two finishes. I love that you cleaned out that corner. You definitely deserve a new project or two. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

Beth Strand said...

Wow! What a great number to get to and I LOVE your little dinosaur!
Thanks for the inspiration!

Joan had a great idea, didn't she? I have a sister with no UFOs but she's strange and unusual, to say the least. Great finishes!

Carol Andrews said...

Carla I think you should get a prize for getting so many UFOS finished up! The dinosaur sure turned out to be a cute one! Thank you for sharing such an inspiring photo of fishes. 😉

Raewyn said...

Wow!! You truly were inspired by the UFO topic. Congratulations on getting that pile all dusted off and sorted. That is one cute dinosaur. I made something similar years ago but it was a ball - and tricky enough without the added head, legs and tail elements!

Joy from Days Filled With Joy said...

You've done a great job finishing those UFOs! Well done! xx

Leah said...

This is awesome! Love seeing that finished stack!
