Lions and Tigers and a UFO

Today was open sew at the quilt shop so I got my table runner from yesterday sandwiched and ready to quilt. Then I got the binding already to go, but I needed to stare at it for a little while so I knew what I wanted to use for a quilting design.  So I set that aside and pulled out my baby quilt that I have been quilting. I have to say I haven't done a lot with panels I get them because they are cute and then I don't know what to do with them.  But this has given me a whole new love for them.  Now that I'm really working on my free motion quilting, it has been a blast to quilt all the little parts of this panel,  I worked more on it today putting detail in the palm leaves and the coconuts.  This is how far I got. 

Here's the detail of the leaves and trees.  

I came home and buried a bunch of my thread tails.  Wow how do you get so many.  Next I will probably do the birds and then the lion and tiger.  I haven't decided what I want to do in the body of the elephant yet.  Hmmm..  

Okay now to update on the UFO Buster for this month  - Here is the picture of the quilt called " A Little Porch Time". 

This is how much I have done, which is my starting status.  I will update as I go along. My UFO Busting goal is only to make progress on it so anything added and I'll have that goal met.  :) 

I think I will try to do the hands, they will go next to the churn dash blocks.  That way that will finish the left section. I wanted to pick something for hand work for our trip.  If I can get some prep-work done this would be perfect since I'm doing it needle turn.  Then again we're not leaving on trip until 27th of the month so not sure.  Something to think about.  
Thanks for stopping by,
