Digging deep in the UFO box

When I made the Hello Kitty quilt for my daughter 3 years ago, I cut squares for 2 quilts with the idea of making one for my niece.  Of course that never happened because there's not much fun making 2 identical quilts one after the other. adding to it that my niece wasn't so much into Hello Kitty after all, motivation was quite low. So I parked my box of little squares for later.... and that later finally arrived last weekend, when I got the box out and started cutting out the missing blue pieces
I started ploughing through the blocks at the weekend, with a little help for my daughter who has been preparing the blocks to speed me up! And I got to just over half way yesterday. I was hoping to be a lot further, a lot quicker but I always seem to have too ambitious timelines....
Anyway the plan is to finish the top before my next business trip so that I can quilt it on my return and gift it the following week. Nothing better than a tight deadline to keep me focused....

  1. So cute!! First pixelated quilts take a lot of time, so setting aside the second one didn't surprise me! But it certainly was worth digging it out and doing it again!

  3. Very cute, but tedious so I don't blame you for putting it away until you had more of a reason to make it. You'll get this done soon and be rewarded by the grateful recipient. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
