Leftover Blocks

Leftover Blocks

I have ten of the appliqué blocks leftover from my mom’s quilt, but they are only fused down, and still need stitching. Ugh. But it would be wrong to waste them right?

So I made ten more Ohio Star blocks, and I still have quite a bit of fabric left, but I am appliquéd out! I could easily make enough for another large quilt, but I’m not sure I can convince myself to appliqué these ten blocks, let alone anymore.

If I add sashing and a couple of borders, I could make a nice lap quilt with these. I was thinking of half-square triangles for the sashing. I guess I could take the appliqué blocks to my quilt retreat next month and get them done?

I don’t have a project planned yet, it seems like fate is planning one for me!

I could go around these blocks with another row of different blocks as well. What I have though, is a bunch of the lighter fabrics. I’ve used most of the darks up.

      I appreciate the vote of confidence… but it’s mostly down to the ugly fabrics now! LOL
