Nothing But UFO's....Well, Almost

It's already the end of January.
Where did the time go?
I signed up with Carrie at A Passion for Applique
for Nothing But UFO's in 2013
with this post
but I fell short of my mark.
There are just so many things to make,
techniques to try, babies being born,
I got side-tracked, and the month flew right by.
However,  I did complete 2 out of 3.
Here's the baby quilt I was hand-quilting,
signed, sealed, delivered, and in use.
And the small tote for my daughter.

She was at the dr. office the other day,
and one of the patients in the waiting room liked it so much,
she called me and ordered one for herself!
Oh, boy, more money for fabric!!
Here's a UFO that I finished that wasn't on my list,
also delivered to it's new owner.

A hexie Doll's Quilt for my favorite Little Princess.
I guess I could work on UFO #3 today to finish it up real fast,'s not in line at the sewing machine
or on today's list.
I'm making bibs, burp cloths, and cookies today!
Thanks, Carrie, for hosting the January edition of
You can go HERE to see all of the other finishes!!

Love the baby quilt and the tote. It is so much fun to see what other people have made. They are both beautiful and that little baby quilt model is precious! ;)

2 out of 3 ain't bad! Love the baby quilt and the doll hexie quilt. Cute little ones too!

Simone de Klerk said...

Wow, Karen, some great finishes. And how fun, that you have an order for the beautiful bag.
What a sweet princess!

I think you did well! The baby quilt turned out so cute and the tote for your daughter is lovely. Can't believe you did those hexies for a doll quilt. She is one lucky little girl. You keep so busy with such good things and its fun to see your finished projects.Nola

2 out of 3, really 3 out of 3 is fabulous. Love that hexie quilt.
And the baby and quilt are so sweet. Well done. I am proud of you!

Fiona said...

wow... lots done and such beauties.... love the new baby on it's quilt.... and little princess seems to be happy with hers.... and what a compliment to get an order for a bag....

Sondra said...

You sound like me when it comes to projects, I like to have many of them going all at once so I can choose whichever suits me at the time!

Astrid said...

Two out of three is great! I wasn't able to finish any, I hope to do better in February! :) Love your quilts and the bag.

You've been busy! No need to feel bad at all. Hand quilting a quilt takes much more time, and what an admirable effort on your part to make that one for the baby. It's wonderful. And no wonder that woman wanted a bag like your daughter's! It's great too! You're a remarkable quilter and cookie baker-decorator. Well done!

Terry said...

Well done working on your UFOs! They look great, and so does the bag! :0)

Hilachas said...

My goodness, you accomplished a lot in one month even though you say it went by so fast. You must have been so busy sewing that you didn't even notice the month of January. WTG!

DeniseinVA said...

Those are all lovely! I'm impressed with how much sewing you have done. The baby is adorable as is your other little one with her quilt. You can tell how proud of it she is.

Nora at Island Rambles said...

Oh I love to see all the quilts and sewing...I especially like the small doll quilt and love the choices of fabrics. from a fabricoholic and lapsed quilter. cheers.

Anni said...

Wow...great work. I'm sure glad you stopped by to say hello at I'd Rather B Birdin' to introduce yourself. That blog is for my birding photography, but I have a personal blog too...that is Hootin' Anni's

Your work is marvelous. I also enjoyed your tea party post below this. Loved your 'tiara'...yes, I would say the same for myself.

Thanks again for giving a shout out. BTW, when are you planning on coming to Corpus for a little birding? Good time of year for that down here.

You will be busy. I do like the little bag hanging on the branch a beautiful way to show it at its best.

Lynne said...

Sounds like you're having fun making things whether they be UFOs or not!
