UFO Priority to Complete!

What a great weekend!  I was able to leave work at a reasonable time Friday. Hubby went to a football game so I spent the evening in the quilt room.  I was somewhat amazed at how much I was able to accomplish.  

The goal for this weekend was to work on the Craftsy BOM.  I am still trying to get caught up.  Hopefully, I can get caught up through September before the October block is revealed.

I am about 85% complete with one of the April blocks on English paper piecing...but I had to order some additional sizes of the pre-cut paper pieces before I can get started on the second one.  I placed the order on Thursday night so they should arrive some time this week.  Crossing my fingers.  I have the fabric cut and ready for when they arrive.

Well, I needed something to show today so I skipped April and worked on the May blocks.  They were kind of fun....not a lot of stress with making sure everything was absolutely, positively perfect.

Here is my Modern Log Cabin Block.  I don't know why, but I love the orange and hot pink plaid in the middle.  I really do!

While I was giving this block a good pressing for the pic...I remembered that I had a UFO of Log Cabin blocks.  Numerous years ago, I took a class on Quilt as You Go Log Cabin Quilt...but because "life happens", I wasn't able to complete the class or the quilt.  So I dug one of the blocks out of the closet and took a look.  I had forgotten how pretty it is.  Perhaps I will drag the whole box out and add that to the quilts I would like to finish sooner rather than later....  Is that a separate list?  UFO Priority to Complete!

Here is a pic of that block.  Isn't it pretty?

On Friday evening, I also completed the Craftsy Wonky 5-Sided Log Cabin block.  Here it is...

Saturday, time in the quilt room was spent working on the Craftsy English paper piecing blocks.  I think I will try another project with the hexagons now that I have had a chance to work with them.  Isn't that what the BOMs are for?  Trying something new.

Today, I worked on my Wicked submission for the Wicked Blog Hop hosted by Wendy at Why Knot? and Madame Samm at Sew WE Quilt coming in October.  And I spent more time on paper piecing.  

So tell me...what would you put on your UFO Priority to Complete! List?

I am hopeful I can get back into the quilt room this week and continue this trend of getting things done. 

Till then....

~~Quilt Much!
