Forgotten WIP Wednesday and UFO Day!

Well, Wednesday has come and gone, and I forgot to post my WIP....

So, here's what I've been working on.

I've basted the Four Seasons Quilt Swap, but that's it. I'm feeling the pressure to finish it up. Here's hoping inspiration hits soon. This weekend will be busy, but I've got some ideas churning. Maybe one will stick!

I worked on Bonnie's Orange Crush Mystery, and thanks to her Scrap User's System, I was able to whip up those four patches in no time. I didn't do much thinking, just grabbed fabrics out of my 2 inch strip bucket and started chain piecing! 150 four patches done!

I dug through my scrap bucket (all those fabrics which haven't been stripped yet) and sorted out the light and dark fabrics for the Off Centered Log Cabin. I decided it would be easier than digging through all the fabrics - so nice having them sorted. But, I'm afraid I'm a hick! I put them in Christmas gift bags to carry with me to the UFO Day today at church!

UFO Day was fun, but not really successful, as far as getting a lot accomplished! There is just something about hanging out with my quilting buddies. We start out strong....this morning was no exception. I got 6 Off Centered Log Cabin blocks completed! Yeah for me. Then we stopped for lunch. We all brought our own, I stopped and picked up a salad - call me unprepared!

After we ate, we sat a visited for a bit. I began to realize time was getting away from us and peeked at the time. We had been "visiting" for 2 hours, and it was time to clean up and go home! So, there was SOME sewing accomplished today, but we sure had a great time!

Here are some of the projects everyone is working on. ( notice the chocolate???)

That's it for now, Dear Older Son is coming home for the weekend and I'll be too busy to post for a while, at least until Monday or

Happy Quilting!

Hmmmmm.....six blocks completed, chocolate, lunch with friends and then chatting for a couple of hours sounds like a fantastic day!

Love the log cabin block! You did accomplish something... a great day and a happy memory. Not to mention 6 blocks! That would be a banner day for me.
