I Found Some UFOs

Guess what – I have some UFOs! I forgot that I haven’t finished quilting this pillow yet.

I now have three quilt projects lined up to make.

The first one is Randi’s quilt-along project.

I cut these fabrics into 4-1/2 inch by 7-1/2 inch rectangles a couple months ago to make another quilt but I didn’t like the way it looked, so I put them back in my closet for another inspiration to appear.

Then I saw Randi’s quilt-along project, and decided that was just the right project. The cutting measurements for Randi’s quilt-along project call for 3-1/2 inch by 7-1/2 inch rectangles, so mine will be a little bit bigger. Close enough for me!

I ordered some Kona cotton in Snow, which I cut into the 4-1/2 inch squares to go in between each rectangle. I still love the chocolate lollipop fabrics, so I’m looking forward to working on this project.

The second one is Anina’s 3-by-3 swap I participated in last summer, where we swapped 9-patch blocks for three months. I need to add white sashing to join these blocks, which I think I have about 48 to assemble.

The third one is this Little Gems pattern I bought from Anina, which is a pinwheel block, my latest love. I haven’t made any pinwheel blocks, and I love these fabrics and colors, so this one is going to be fun too.

I have the fabrics cut for each one of these projects, so I am ready for some piecing.

I love having several quilt projects lined up. Until I can get to these, I continue to keep busy making new products to fill up my shop.

  • Seeing those nine-patches remind me that I have that quilt on my to do list to. I have strips of blocks sewn but haven’t put them together.
    I may also want to make another Little Gems quilt with different fabric, I think.

  • TGIF You have enough to keep you going all weekend and then some. Love your color choices. Good Luck and can’t wait to see them finished.

  • FUN! I rarely have UFO’s…just piles of uncut fabric and hopes that I’ll get to it 🙂
