UFO number two...and Happy Fourth!!

This is UFO number two I am working on this week.  All the quilting fun comes to an end for me for a while, as I have to work the next long stretch...so tada!  Here is my three inch blocks/rail fence.  Little pieces are the best!  I finished all the blocks yesterday, now I just need to sew it all together.  This came exclusively out of strings...yahoo!!
And another empty container to report!  These containers are recycled from the cath lab at work, and are sturdy hard plastic...why throw them away?  I use them constantly to organize projects...



I wish everyone a wonderful fourth of July!!!

It's lovely! And an empty container? Woo hoo? I swear, I fill them just as fast as they empty. For me, I use the plastic containers our combo meals at the Chinese Restaurant come in. The lid snaps on nice and tight and is see through, so I can see what project is inside.

You are making great headway with your ufo's. I have a few that need pulled out, just haven't got the mojo for them right now, maybe this fall! Happy 4th.

You are really sewing up a storm of quilt! Another great scrappy top. Happy 4th!

I'm working all weekend too. Let's hope for happy shifts :-)
Love the new UFO. I'll have to check out the Cath Lab for some containers...the ED's recyclable's are kind of limited. I've only found one useful container.
Happy 4th!

You do the BEST scrappy quilts!!! I always LOVE each of them and this one as well. My pea-brain is thinking "who can I give this one to, if I make it?" 8-))

Congratulations on an empty tub and another great quilt. Now you have a great excuse to fill the tub with another new project!
