Well, I am amazed! I was cleaning out our old antique dresser...and guess what? I found these blocks! I totally forgot making them...and still have no memory of the actual sewing, but I know I made them as a Block of the month from a quilt shop named Nostalgia. The date? 1997. Wow! At the time, there were very good instructions on how to make the blocks, and as I was just learning to piece, that was good, I got great experience! But, the setting together directions were really made for someone who had experience...and I was stuck. I just kind of gave up...and a UFO was born.
Thanks to Finn, and Debi, and many of you bloggers out there...I have the skills and knowledge to put these blocks together! I have looked at Finn's Orphan train, and studied how some of the quilts were put together. Debi gave me the Big Blue and Yellow quilt pattern, and the pieces were put together much the same way I needed to for this quilt....so....
This is what I have together so far. I don't like the yellow background block on the left, but will leave it in there so it does not become lonesome on it's own! My favorite? The tiny flying geese! I love that bit!
OK...I have been doing very well on my cleaning, and decluttering...but 13 years? Wow, that is a long time for a UFO to simmer!!! Can any of you beat that?
Have a super day,
