UFO Busting

Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,

Last year for me was mostly confined to piecing with not many finishes.  That being said my UFO stack is more than I want.  So I’ve made a deal with myself not to start any big projects until I complete them.  This deal does not unclude making a list of what I want to make next.  I’ve even purchased some fabric last week for the next project.  It sure is hard not to start it yet.  Let’s see if I can be strong.

At this time I have three finished quilt tops with one more in the sashing stage.  Hopefully, you will see some good finishes soon.  I’m almost done with my OMG for the month and will start quilting the next.

Last year I did a pattern for my friend Denise with For the Love of Geese.  She designs the best patterns.  And this one is certainly a beauty.  It’s quite big and will need a bunch of quilting.  I’m up for the challenge and can’t wait to show the progress.  My thoughts on the quilting at the moment is to do some walking and free motion quilting.  I think it would be nice to quilt it lightly in the color areas with more dense quilting in the white block.  I’m hoping the effect will be that the colored areas will stand out more. img_0668 (1)

Wish me luck with managing this task.  I can’t wait to get it under the machine.

Well that’s all I have for now.

    1. Hi Wendy, I think I will start with some stitch in the ditch to hold it together then try to do something to really make the quilt shine.  Thanks for visiting me today.   Best Regards,Cherie BurtonCherie’s Quilting Journey

    1. Hi Gail, I hope it will keep the piecing in focus.  It already has so much movement.  Keeping my fingers crossed.   Best Regards,Cherie BurtonCherie’s Quilting Journey


  1. Oh Cherie, this is beautiful. You did such a fabulous job. I can’t wait to see how your quilting transforms your quilt.
    Thank you so much for the warm compliment.


  2. Love the pop of color the Mariner’s Compass gives to the center of the quilt. Looking forward to seeing the quilting progress!


  3. Hi Cherie! This quilt top turned out so lovely. I have to admit that I would be overwhelmed at how to quilt this, so I am really looking forward to seeing what you choose. That center piece of the compass with all of those stunning colors is truly exceptional. ~smile~ Roseanne


  4. Hi Cherie — that quilt is stunning and definitely has the WOW factor! Can’t wait to see how you quilt it —
    How’s the new workload going? I was in your part of the world over the weekend for the game — what a disappointing loss 😦


    1. Hi Karla, Work is going good.  I’ve only traveled 3 times so far, but will again on Thursday.  I found a Holiday Inn over there that serves breakfast and dinner.  Which is good since I won’t have a car there.  THAT GAME!  WE WERE ROBBED!!!!!  I was at a party and we were all sitting at the edges of our seats.  Once that terrible call happened, the party was over.   Best Regards,Cherie BurtonCherie’s Quilting Journey
