3 More UFO's bite the dust

Many Many months ago I started quilting fat quarter sandwichs....... one reason was to practice my free motion and cross hatch quilting skills and the other was to make humbug bags and lazy girl nikita pouches... I got the quilting done... and there they sat........ the migrated their way into the ufo box.... yesterday I got them out and took care of 4 quilt sandwiches! The comical zebra fabric and the comical hippo fabric turned into 3 humbug bags and 1 tissue cover EACH!! and the remaining two sandwiches turned into Nikita Bags... one from each... and there's probably enough left to make one or two tissue covers from each sandwich. The Nikita Bags are the boxy brick shaped bags from Lazy Girl designs Purse-nikities pattern... one of my very fav's!! I also completed block one of the Subway Quilt.... 12 drink me bottle bitty blocks for the Alice in Wonderland Swap... the center star of my Quilting Book Club Challenge Project... a hexagon pin cushion and a Bishcornu Pincushion for the pin cushion swap! Saturday and Sunday were busy days!!! I'll post a pic or two here since I haven't done that for awhile and the rest are out on flickr.. Here is block one of the Subway quilt
Here is the Bishcornu I like this and I think I'm going to enlarge it to make a cushion for the living room........
Lots of things left to do........ more subway blocks.... more christmas quilt about a dozen of those down now......... 3 quilts that need to be backed and batted and quilted.......... plus new bitty blocks for May! This month is houses!! I think when I get these... i'll add them to my other house blocks and tree bitty blocks and make a small throw for the back of the sofa or maybe a wall hanging............ we'll see.......... I think that might be it for now.... be sure to check out flickr Have a great week Lish
