UFO Number 1

I decided that the first of the UFO’s that I would tackle would be a small wall hanging that was started in a class several years ago. The workshop was given by Debbie Frey and used the “Scrap Happy Spools” pattern. I had selected shades of blue for the piece and had only finished 2-1/2 of the 12 blocks needed for the top.


I truly enjoyed spending an evening finishing the squares and setting them together to make a cute small quilt. I dont particularly care for paper piecing, but found this project to be fun. As I stitched, I decided to give the quilt as a gift to a wonderful friend who wants to make quilts, but cant find the time at the moment.

I needed to quilting to be fast and easy so chose a variegated blue thread and did a free form swirl over the surface.

I am pleased with the result and my friend loved it!!!

One UFO down and 17 more to go!!!!
