I accidentally started a new project on the weekend. It started with trying to clean up the mess in my quilt studio, and we all know how that goes!
While cleaning, I found a box that was given to me at winter quilt retreat by my friend Gillian. The box was full of 1.25" x 6" strips that were mostly lights and a few medium darks thrown in. I had forgotten about this gift and started taking the strips out of the box to admire them. I think these pieces were originally cut as part a pieced border because there was one long strip of them sewn together.
Of course I became smitten with these strips and several hours later (with no cleaning done) I had decided to sew 7 strips together to make these 6" x 6" blocks. I'm thinking about using this layout. These 16 blocks will only make a quilt that is 22" square, so I need to cut more strips and keep sewing to make it a useable size. What a great distraction!
And that is how UFO's are born!
