Good Monday Morning quilty Buddies! This weekend was a very productive quilty marathon. After cutting 1652 pink squares, ( you can read about it here. ) I needed a little sit down time. The pink quilt still isn't ready for the sewing machine so a quick dig through the UFO bin....and look what was found hiding way down in the bottom. What a wonderful surprise! These blocks had been totally forgotten. How did this happen? The star blocks were done and the green chain blocks were about halfway done. It didn't take long to finish piecing the blocks. Maybe I need more UFO's laying around for that instant quilty fix!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the prints! The orange and navy blue are both from the vintage stash. That orange is just sweeter than pumpkin pie!(you must say that using your very best Steel Magnolia southern draw) They just don't make'em like this anymore. Calico's....simple and sweet, reminds me of being a little girl and Momma making most of my cloths. Calico shirts and big ole floppy Culottes(coolots). Momma was doing her best and it was the style, but to a little chubby, redheaded, freckled face girl....Culottes were not groovy. Funny how the things we disliked as a child are fond memories as an adult. It would be even better had mom kept the hideous things.
Yep I'm liking this UFO busting. Maybe I should do this more often....yeah right! We all say that but we know the real truth. The likelihood of this staying a UFO is more probable than me finishing it and working on another. Oh but a girl needs to dream. While I'm at it I'll dream up a little quilting fairy to help with the mountain of UFO's. She's a cute little pudgy gal...wearing Culottes!
Alright enough daydreaming, that's the reason why I've so many UFO's in the first place.
The original plan for this quilt was to add some applique. So what do you think? Applique or more blocks?
Before I leave let's link up today's post with some very fine blogging gals. Hop on over, be inspired, join the fun and link up!
