The UFO project I have picked to finish this month has not been seen for a long time on my blog. I call this quilt "Fandango and Friends". It began in 2010 with a scrap bag purchased for me by my friend Jake while she was at Paducah. All the light fabrics were in that bag and are from the Kate Spain Fandango collection. I added the dark scraps from an old scrap bag of mine (probably some of my very first fabric purchases) and cut everything into 2.5" strips, and then made them into half hexagon blocks. According to my blog posts, I used this tutorial for cutting.
I played with some layout possibilities in 2011 and somewhere along the way it became a quilt top! Apparently I also added partial scraps on the sides so that the edges could be trimmed evenly. Hmmm.... I don't really remember sewing any of these steps, so that's a bit concerning! LOL! But I do like what I did, so it's all good!
The next step is to trim down the sides and decide on borders. It measures 48" x 56" before the borders, so it really could use an increase in size.
Hop over to A Lovely Year of Finishes to see more UFO projects for August.
