UFO Blasting…

YAHOO!  My first UFO is busted!!  Yup…you heard me!  Button Town is done, finished, kaput!  Why she EVEN has a label on her back!

She went from this…

P1080203

…to this!  And give or take TWO years!  WHY did I wait so long to finish her off is the million dollar question!  BUT UFOs have a way of doing that, don’t they!

Anyway I am awfully glad that Button Town is finished NOW!

P1190839

I have got to zoom in for a close-up…here’s the top of the wall hanging…

P1190844

 

…and the bottom.

P1190842

She’s not all that big…maybe 24” by 35”…and she does look sweet hanging on my wall of ivy!  But no, she won’t be staying outside for long…I have a wall all ready for her!

If you want to make a Button Town of your own, you can find the pattern in this magazine…or you can find out more about this pattern at City Stitcher!

Now it’s onto the NEXT UFO!!  There’s nothing like UFO BUSTING!!…except for maybe..starting something NEW!

What a good feeling it must be to have completed that UFO. And Button Town is so cute. I took your advice last week and pulled out one of my UFOs (a couple of times), but just couldn't get any enthusiasm for it. I kept looking at all the CW fabric I have and am itching to use. But, I must persevere so, I guess it's back to the UFO closet for me.lol

Button Town looks good finished. I am shipping you a few of my UFO's since you are getting so good at finishing.

Hurray for a great Button Town finish! Looks fabulous! You've inspired me to start UFO busting too... only problem is the process could take me into next year! lol!

Marj said...

Kudos for finishing one of your UFOs. I love how you quilted it.

It's adorable! Way to go!

Jacqueline said...

She is a beauty !.

I have finished 3 of my UFO's in the last week. Yahoo. Two more to go and I will be "current" to July, 2012 starts.

Need to start practicing machine quilting so I can knock these projects out quicker..LOL

Sheila said...

It's beautiful! Say, since you are in a ufo busting mood, I'll be happy to send you one of mine! Maybe I'll try to start a swap. Trading ufo's with the fabric to finish then getting them back when they're done....no...it wouldn't work. They'd just end up being ufo's at someone else's house...lol!

Good job on your adorable wallhanging!

Good for you for finishing Button Town. I have a question about the quilt shown on the front of the magazine, can you tell me the name of it and other information. I think it is great. Just got back from the desert, it has been miserable there, lots of humidity and heat, but looking forward to fall. Thank you for any information you can share.

audrey said...

Very sweet! Some quilts you just know need to be finished up and others, maybe passed by. Good choice on getting this one done!

Lesley said...

Buttontown is adorable! You must be so happy and proud to be able to hang this one...too cute!

Mary said...

This one turned out great. Wow! Good job.
