Between sessions of working on the mini quilt I've been working on another FAL project, this time a UFO.
In 2012 the wonderful ladies of Sew Blues Bee gave me a Thank You gift for hosting the bee. The ladies made Ribbon Star blocks out of rainbow colors. It was such a surprise when these blocks began to arrive!
I was ready to whip out a quilt top right then, but a little lost star showed up the week after Christmas. Suddenly I had 26 blocks. That meant I needed to stitch up 4 more blocks to add another row. I'm quite ashamed to say, I procrastinated making those blocks and here we are over 3 years later with this box full of pretty blocks and it is time to finish this!!
The blocks went up on the design wall over the weekend and shuffled them around until I was happy, and scraps for the four new blocks were chosen and cut to size.
There were a few minutes before church Sunday morning so I quickly sewed up all the HST's. The HST's are all trimmed down to the proper size now.
The units are pinned together waiting to be sewn into the last four finished blocks. All the blocks on the design wall have had a good pressing and have been squared up as best they can be. Hopefully I'll squeeze in sewing time to move this project along over the weekend! I'm eager to get this one finished and off the design wall.
Here's my quality control expert. Daisy is always on hand to share her opinions. She certainly is a quilt lover!
Hope you have a great Thursday! Stitch On!!
