One Thing Leads to Another

Today, I went into my studio to do a bit of cleaning up before I started working on the backing fabric for the string pieced wallhanging. I got everything cleaned up and then started looking for the backing fabric. I opened a box of UFO’s to see if there was anything that I could use and out popped this forgotten bag of bits……

These were the leftovers from the Mother-Daughter Flower Garden quilt that I made last year. …..

Final version




I had tried several different setting blocks and border blocks before I decided on the final version and this is a bag of all of the bits that weren’t used.




There are 14 finished blocks (along with the bits for 1-1/2 more)……

These blocks will finish at 9 inches.

In addition, there are the following…..

38 Half square triangles that will finish at 2 inches





_9132514 (2)



62 Half square triangles that will finish at 1 inch.






_9132512 (2)



6 Corner units




_9132510 (2)


and 14 of these un-named units,




and a mass of other shapes and sizes of fabrics.

NOW, the question is “what will I do with all of this???” I already have a name for the quilt….. “Cuttings from the Garden”. I may ask my Mom to make one more flower block for it, but that is yet to be decided.

Needless to say, I ended up working on this and forgetting about the backing fabric that I was looking for…..oh well, there is always another day.

And I bet you haven't even made a tiny dent in your UFOs yet. Looks like being a lovely quilt though.

Wow, you almost have a quilt there. I like the design these blocks make.
