I have some down time on this road trip so I planned ahead and brought some projects to work on. I dug out a UFO that has to be around twenty years old! The blocks are 6″ and a variation on the traditional Northwind block.
These are some arrangements I’m considering; grouping them into sets of four that would then finish 12″.
So far I have 52 of the blocks done. I’m not sure what my original plan was for these blocks but I think it may have been for a twin size quilt.
I have some nice stacks of parts all coordinated for blocks and then I have some parts that don’t go with anything!
This box is about is about a third full of the pre cut parts and I have no clue how many there are. I could take the time to count them, which would appeal to the accountant in me, I could just wing it and make blocks until I run out of parts and design the quilt from what I have, and that would appeal to the artist in me.
Whatever I decide to do I will keep you posted with the progress. Anyone else out there inspired to dig out an old UFO and work on it?
