UFO Weekend

Made progress on several projects over the long weekend when I wasn't hauling stuff to the new house. 

First project up was finishing off the HST's used in this quilt top and then putting them together.  These were a UFO that I bought from the scrap barrel from my local quilt shop here.  I added a remnant  of a Kona red that I had in my stash and cut the needed triangles and squares.  This is 32" square and still needs a border or two to finish it off.   It will be donated at some point.

I then switched over to working with these rail fence blocks that came from somewhere.   I don't even remember where now.   Fabrics are both batiks.   Blocks are 4" finished, so this is definitely not finished at this point.  I'll need to add multiple borders to this to get it up to a size for donation, but have no idea at this point of what I want to add.   Stash-diving here I come to find something.  =)

And the last project that I worked on this weekend were adding a border of WOW fabric to these blocks.   Made with 30's repro fabrics they are from a long ago swap with online friends.  They will be set with scrappy 30's repro sashing and cornerstones cut form more of the WOW used as block borders. 


1. Between switching back to 100% cotton sheets (from microfiber ones) and antihistamines, the hives rash seems to be well on the way to being routed.

2. I'm glad for almost 2 more weeks to go before the big move is upon me.

Lots of progress of many kinds at your house!! So glad you still have a little time to prepare for the big move!! So glad you finally found/got a new house and I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the new sewing space once you move in.

Yay for getting rid of hives and rash! I only use 100% cotton sheets, too. Those projects look great. I like the way the HST worked out. That could be a wall hanging in someone's home and be modern art! You moved three things along - great!
