One thing I had learnt rather quickly when I started quilting, was never throw out your scraps.
They might just come in handy one day for other projects.
Well today I think I started my first official UFO. How about that, after 2 year and 4 months, I have a real honest to goodness UFO.
Not all these scraps are mine....lots have been given to me either when we have been working and sewing together or yep, sent to me in the mail....lol
Some of this wadding are scraps from when as a group we made 16 quilts for the Queensland Flood survivors.
I'm going with the biggest square I have in the sewing room..... 6.5 inches. One day I hope to own a bigger square.
Made 2 this afternoon. Figured I'd sew 4 together to make a big block and then use some yummy gold/mustard/ what ever colour it is for the sashing. That too was given to me....lol
After I tidied up the mess, I then started cutting out Teddy Bear shapes for the HUGGLES for Ethiopia. Took some photos but I will share them, in the up coming days.
Waiting on an order of fabric to arrive, so I figured a good afternoon on these 2 projects was the way to go.
