ufos

And I don't mean the space ones ;) lol.

Yesterday, I had the whole day ahead of me for some sewing room time. And not a clue where to start or what to work on. I have been doing everything I can to avoid starting this for Boy4.


I will say, some of the piecing instructions on that scare me a little bit!

I didn't want to start a new project, I really do need to get the Dalek done, so I  opened up my UFO bin and dived in.

I  dug out a quilt I started roughly 5(possibly even longer) years ago. It was a class but I never finished the quilt for two reasons; so many steps to get the block done where there are faster, easier ways to construct it and more importantly, the class was advertised as the quilt finishing as a 72inch square when it is actually for  a queen sized bed-useless to me. I did consider buying more of my fabric to make the quilt a king size but we had to scrap yardage together just to get enough fabric for my kit.

I had a good stack of melons already ready to apply to my blocks so away I went. And soon I discovered that I was short yardage to cut out the last 6 background blocks. argh!! Luckily, I had enough yardage of a matching black print and I was able to get the last blocks cut.


 I have way too many melons to finish prepping for the last blocks but I got such a great (re)start on this quilt! I am planning to still make it queen sized. What will happen to it after that, who knows!

Happy Thursday!

  1. That is going to be so pretty! Are the melons pieced or appliqued? I have yet to tackle curved piecing in quilts. I have done a fair amount in clothing construction and bags.

I had to put word verification back on; just too much spam! Sorry, I'm not a fan either!!

Thanx for visiting, hope to see you again soon!
