From time to time a baby gets dropped off on my doorstep. Not a real one... a fabric one! Sometimes the biological creator takes responsibility for the drop off and sometimes it's a "drop and run" situation.
Do you remember this abandoned UFO from a few years ago? It's one of my favourite rescues! Lots of the blocks were already made and I easily figured out how to finish it.
Here's the latest package that was abandoned. It's a golden oldie and the original pattern and/or idea is long gone. Now it's just a pile of fabric in colours that the quilter really wanted to like but just didn't. Some if it is cut, some of it is half sewn. There are many HST blocks sewn and some large squares with flip and sew corners.
It's impossible to know what this was going to become and it's a challenge to know where to even start. I started by trimming all the threads on the sewn blocks and finished sewing the HSTs that were started.
So now what?!?
