BQ will be my focus this weekend at quilt stay-cation

My BQ quilt is now officially a quilt top as I was able to finish sewing it up with those borders around the 1st of May.   Love that those borders are on and look so sweet.  while constructing the borders I asked PGD#1 what her favorite color is and she responded "blue", thus the blue cornerstones on the perimeter.  Since a friend and I are attending a Quilt retreat this weekend in Alexandria Bay, I hope to create the backing for it using up all those leftover bits.

The plan is to also make a pillow case or two, the binding and then sew up all those extra scrap parts for a backing this month.   I won a gift certificate at our quilt show in 2015 so my plan is to use that for quilting this twin size quilt. 

Wish me luck!

I saved this post and then ...... originated as my 2017 monthly UFO challenge list

LIFE Happened,

you know, the normal day to day things needing done.  So this post and my intentions slid to the side since I needed to get the photos to go along with the post then  I fussed around with other squirrels coming inot my perview..... SO my intention without pictures of all the UFOs listed will now be to get 6 done, the small tesselated heart table top quiltlet finished. Here is how it is at present.
 
Trying to add just the one photo and I'm having electronic issues.  I need to buy another I-phone charging cord for the computer as DH "borrowed" the one that goes with the computer.  Will be back another day for the photo.   PROMISE!

January 2017 Drafted post was something like this (am saving this in context as a reference):
Judy over at Patchwork Times is hosting UFOs 2017 and I think it's a great idea!
First you make a list of 12 UFOs you'd like to complete in 2017.  Each month a random number is picked and you work on the respectively numbered UFO to completion.  I'm not sure how successful this time but I'm really focused recently wiht my intentions so am ever hopeful.  LOL  Here's my list:

1-  WFQG Community Quilt

2-  Valentine Panel Wallhanging

3-  Patchabilities - St. Patrick's Day

4-  Leaves Table Runner

5-  Radiant Wall Hanging

6-  Twisted Heart Table top Quiltlet - my current focus as of July 2017

7-  Sonia's WindowsBed Quilt

8-  Braided Squares Bed Quilt

9-  BQ2 Bed Quilt

10- Lone Star Bed Quilt
