What is old...is new again! And more thank yous!

More scraps...I made several of these blocks a couple years ago, then they went into a bin...but I am finishing this quilt with scraps, and a setting design I came up with myself. I am sure it is not original, but it is original to me, LOL!! This is an official UFO, everyone...so whoohoo! I am finishing a UFO!!!
So here are the blocks, and then I am piecing a sashing, to make neutral stars in the middle of the sashing...well, I can't explain it, but when the quilt is finished, you will see!



THANK YOU!!

To

Becky R.
and
Terry G.


Thank you for gorgeous pinks to add to the box for our breast cancer survivor...thank you!!!


Have a great day, everyone!!

I really like how this is turning out! I also love the wing-it attitude! Woohoo for scrappy and woohoo for UFO completion!

Congrats on getting to the UFO! Yippee! And I can totally see the sashing design in your fab quilt! It's going to be wonderful!

Andrea said...

Oh I remember these from last time round - lol ! And I remember how I liked them then and wanted to make some too and guess what - I still do. Could you tell me what size they finish at please ? - I might just have to make one block so I don't forget about them xxx

Nicky said...

Another success story! It's good to finish of those UFOs - I'm still working thru mine - all 13 of them! Yikes! Clever you for finding a great setting!

Karen said...

Good for you Julie! A UFO heading for the finish line, I love it and the quilt top too! Looks like a great idea to me, and best of all you didn't need a New Years Eve UFO countdown to get at it...hurray!! Hugs, Finnie

I've got to stop looking at your quilts, because every time I see another one you're working on, I want to make it! LOL And you're very welcome for the pink fabrics! I'm happy to be able to help! :0)
