Moving into a new space really brings out the UFO's!
The cowboy boot quilt is going to be a Christmas gift for one of my stepsons. The boots were all in pieces so I got them put together. It's a fun quilt and a great way to use up those 'western' look scraps! It is from an old Fons and Porter 'Love of Quilting' magazine.  
This is a fast, easy quilt made from10 fat quarters. It's a pattern from The Quilt Patch - 'Take Ten'
It will go into my 'to be quilted pile' for a quick wedding, shower, birthday or just because gift.
Then I found a UFO from probably 4 or more years ago. These were made from a Honey Bun.
My pieces came with one little diagram I had scribbled so I am not sure what my original  intent was... I think it got put away because I need one more dark star to make any of my preferred layouts work and there are not enough strips to get one more star..
I do have some yardage as well that goes with it -one light piece and one dark piece.
Here are a couple of possibilities.
I will layout a few more possibilities but I think this is going back into the UFO box again- for now at least. It did inspire me though! Maybe a better planned one is in my future.
Happy Stitching!

  1. Its fun to find UFO's. Yours are all great. I think I like the circular layout on the stars. But any layout would look good. Hope you are all settled in to your sewing space!
