UFO Blog Hop

                                                                 

I just knew that when Joan announced this hop I would have a great time. Where to begin?  UFO can mean a few things to quilters, Unfinished Objects and we all have them which makes this such an inclusive hop.

I only needed to find my UFO bin to have something that would work for me and the hop.


I found this one and thought that I had pulled it a couple of years ago to finish, apparently not.


It was full of the original pins and its half quilted.
I tried to find a blog from the past where I posted about it or should I say them.  I made several as Christmas gifts one year and this one was supposed to be mine. The best I could do was find a note about one hanging at my sisters for so long we didn't remember when I made them.  The note was dated 1/1/12 which makes it more than 10 years in the making.


Well it is now a done deal.   OOPS, I think I forgot the eye balls, tee hee.


Ok fixed that. It is NOW a done deal. Ya Hoo
Thank you Joan, it's a wonderful feeling to see it completed.

The other UFO, Unidentified Flying Object is right up my alley.  Back in June of 2021 Joan hoasted the Fairy Tales Blog Hop

At that time I made and posted about The Tardis which  stands for Time And Relative Dimension in Space.  Its the Police Public Call Box that  Doctor Who travels in. Its a Type 40 time and space machine from Gallifrey, his home planet but I only got as far as finishing the top.  I did get it quilted right after the Hop but never got around to the binding. Again, a project for me and those seem to be the ones left as UFO's the most often.


So I have now taken my Tardis and finished it.  It is no longer an unfinished quilt project. 


A UFO by any other name.


Joan thanks so much, I had a great time and am already looking forward to the next adventure.

Below is a list of all the participants for this event.  You'll have a great time if you take a few minutes and visit with them all and let them know how great their clean up has been.

  4. Your Santa is so cute! I too found some projects with the pins still in them. That explains why my pins were disappearing and needed replenished! LOL!! Congrats on getting the binding on your Tardis quilt too. There is something about that final finish that warms our hearts! Along with that UFO busting! LOL!!

  8. Two new old projects all done! Check! Check! Always a good feeling to get old started projects finished. I had a couple once and was delighted when they were finished. But I don’t normally have UFOs. Start to finish is my goal always. Your Santa is ready for this year now. He’s adorable!...especially with eyes. Tee hee. And your Doctor Who quilt looks great all finished too.

  13. That cute old gentleman is welcome to visit our house anytime. He is so handsome! I really don't know anything about Dr Who, but the idea of a magic sort of telephone box is fascinating. My imagination went wild when i saw this. One can see a great storyline for quilter there Seina. Thanks a bunch

  14. Good for you to find such fun projects to finish up. They are both amazing! Santa will be a great decoration for this year's Christmas: so cute, especially those eye balls. And the phone box is something I had not seen in a quilt. Such great details with the wording and windows and lights. Great finishes!

  18. It's just great to know you're still spending time in your sewing room, and especially that you've been able to finish a couple UFOs. Gosh, that's always a great thing to do! Good for you to be participating in this blog hop. It's apparent that many people are following along. It's fun to get so many commenters, isn't it?
