That's right... Friday night had me sewing along with many others for FNSI.
I got another UFO out of the cupboard and tried to make some progress.
I had a pile of blocks already sewn, rows joined and lots of scraps. So trying to work out what the plan was... Anyway, I have decided it needed another 5 blocks making. This is what I made on Friday night. I will then have 5 blocks across and 6 rows down. I will join them with the brighter blue sashing and the backing fabric as corner stones and a 4" border... Now to get the measurements right.
A box of scraps

What I started with

Now to keep working on it over the next few weeks to get it finished.

Why don't you grab a cuppa and go check out what others got up to.


  1. Looks fabulous Jo..... its seams it's a year of dragging long awaited projects out of our cupboards....

  2. Well done working on your UFO! It will be a very pretty quilt, love all the blues and creams. Keep up the great work!

  3. Such pretty fabric! Congrats on your progress - you'll have that quilt done in no time!

  4. Wow, wow, wow! I am so in love with this quilt. I also love blue! Congrats on getting so much done!

  5. Gorgeous project Jo and well worth pulling out again!

  6. Love the blue in that Jo, lovely project.

  7. Very nice! Great way to use up those scraps!

  8. Sometimes hard when you have put stiff away for so long and you have forgotten what it as you were after - but its coming together nicely.

  9. It never amazes to cease me what comes out of scraps. Lovely work.
