I couldnt do it

I couldnt do it Collette
I could NOT make myself use that bright yellow fabric and sew that square up.

so instead I sewed this one

I first trimmed my block to 11 inches
then cut 3 1/2 inch borders
and stitched them on

now I will iron it flat and find a back and batt it
quilt it simply
bind it and it will be ready for someones table
all blue and pretty.........
one way to finish up those UFOs right? 
hey who said that they need to stay in the original
idea???? the quilt police????
in my book as long as they are USED 
and into something USEFUL
they are a success
on to the next block!

You could use those orphan blocks to throw together some easy peasy bags too. Like the blues though. :D

Well, that blue is really lovely; I like the idea of many smaller blocks--easier to hand quilt and nice to have on hand as toppers...hugs, Julierose
