A few weeks ago, I bought a Ziploc bag of nine patch blocks from the Share Table at Heritage. I know…I know…I do NOT need someone else’s UFOs! I have plenty of my own! But these nine patch blocks were scrappy…and not very happy! They needed a home…one where they would be loved and appreciated for their scrappy goodness!
I had lost steam on the modern zig zag quilt that I am making for my daughter and these were the perfect diversion…I needed to PLAY!! And play I did…
Man, I love the Internet…after deciding to put the blocks on point I Googled ‘Putting quilt blocks on point’ and got this site by Quilt Bug. Made it SEW easy!!
Laid them out…
Before I knew it…the rows were together and I had a quilt top!
Then I added a wide beige border to make it appear that the blocks were floating and then decided to add a wonky vine running around the circumference….(Sorry this is so wrinkled…it happens to the best of us!:) SEW…this is where I’m at today…I have a new hand stitching project waiting for me…I will hand appliqué the vine to the quilt before I even think about adding leaves and flowers!!
Isn’t it weird how someone else’s UFO looks way more appealing then your own? Maybe the secret to getting UFOs finished is to trade them with a friend! Hmmmm food for thought!! What I do know is that I am loving this scrap HAPPY quilt…and yes, it is HAPPY!!
Hey, the sun is shining in my corner of the world this morning…and just listen to those birds!! How about you?? Are you having a sunny scrap HAPPY Day? I sure hope SEW! ~P
