UFO, are not unto themselves such a bad thing. (Says she will a list an arm length long). But think about it, UFO can best be described as a creative idea expressed in fabric (for quilter artists), in glass (for glass artists), in yarn (for knitters), in embroidery thread (for needle crafters), and so on. To make my point about carpenters I only have to point the camera in the direction of my son's wood shop. I digress.
So I saw a great 2" scrap buster over on Quiltville. Two four patches joined end to end and paired with a 3.5" by 6.5" and set staggered style...or Barn Raising...I doodled the design down and made a few rows to capture the essence of the pattern. I have used blue as my dominate colour of the larger rectangles, but the 2" bits are anything goes. This will now become my leader and ender project.
I used blue and cut pieces as I hunted through the drawers and bins looking for just the right bright pinks, oranges, turquoise and blues for my next weekend class at Earthly Goods.
This yellow gray is my background choice.
I KNOW I am my own worst enemy.
Back to my UFO pile: it will be seriously be worked on between now and Christmas, as a few of these have been identified as presents for my grandchildren.
Today I am getting the Tumalo Trail put together, all the blocks are made, and the backing ironed.
I love these cows! This is for the oldest grandson, born into a family of ranchers. Enter the brown theme for the SoScrappy aficionados that are keeping up with making all sorts of lovely chocolate, mocha, and espresso flavored blocks.
Much love and hugs to you all
