It's the 1st Scrappy Saturday of 2011 and I have already benefitted from signing up for Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge! The colour of the month is blue and I got out my blue scrap bins to make some blocks. All of this thought about blue reminded me that I had a very old UFO made from blue scraps that had been on the list for my guild UFO group many (at least 5) years ago. So instead of working with the blue scraps, I went on a UFO treasure hunt and I found it!
This project is made of what I would call a quarter log cabin block with 1 1/2" strips of a consistent grey and lots of blue scraps. All of the feelings I had about it came rushing back...I hated this thing at one time. As happened with this quilt, when I am away from a project for some time and start working on it again, I often forget what my plan was for the quilt. When the brain fires up again and I realize I made a mess...ta da...a UFO is born!!
I sorted through the box and decided that some of the dark blue rounds that were mistakenly made from 2 different fabrics were going to stay like that, and some of them needed to be reconstructed. So I did some ripping and made 8 quarter blocks, which when put together made 2 more blocks for the quilt.
This is the end of the grey fabric and I think I have enough blocks for a nice size lap quilt, so I'll work on putting them together. I can't believe that this old thing has been joyfully resurrected and might actually become a finished quilt!!
