UFO Blocks

Here is another UFO. I didn't have enough crazy quilt blocks to make a big quilt so I used big sashing to make the quilt bigger.

I went garage saling today. Found books, fabric, a nice basket and a couch for my granddaughter. Very good condition. I get it home and she thinks it is ugly so now I am not sure she will take it.
I finished another UFO today. I received this kit as a gift from my secret pal.

This was one of my original blocks and it has had two borders added.
I finished adding a border to this block. I thought hourglass blocks in the corners went well with this

Today I went to my quilters guild. I am a member of Piecemakers. I made my lotto block this morning but forgot to take a picture. It was a red white and blue hole in the barn door. Very pretty. Tonight I just finished the third block in my Add a border Block swap. I took my inspiration from the center. The name of the block is three blind mice and my border is named mouse trails.

Add a border to a block bee

Today I worked on a 24inch and a 18 inch block and one of my blocks showed up in the bee today as a 18 inch block. Celeste did a beautiful job on it.

Well, today was another slow day for sewing. I had to take my car in for an oil check and when I got back I worked on some old crazy quilt blocks.

My Mini quilt group met today and we worked on book covers. Unfortunately I didn't bring enough fabric so I still have to finish mine.

I finished another ufo plus I am cutting out a new quilt. This summer I went on a shop hop and the prize for going to all the shops was a stack of 1/4th yard solids and each shop gave you a pattern.The pattern I am using for my top is by by Terry Atkinson and the border I am going to use is the flowered fabric with the geraniums on it.
