A UFO Saturday.

 Don't you love those quiet Saturdays when you have an hour or two to spare and the opportunity to finish another UFO. I found these heart blocks from an internet swap from 14 years ago and made some nine patch blocks to match them. The nine patches used some hand dyed red squares with some cream 3 inch squares. I'd pieced the blocks and finished the top a few weeks ago but needed more red fabric for the borders so it had to wait until I had time to shop. I seem to be using a lot of reds lately and yet I find I usually need to buy more.
    I made a backing, quilted and bound it this afternoon and it's good to have another UFO finished. Now I need to get another top finished and ready to quilt. The next project was actually two projects of blue baskets, all different types. They are from two basket swaps I did 20 years ago and I think I'll combine the blocks from both projects and get another few UFOs off my list of "Must Do".
  I hope you are also enjoying your Easter break.
Hugs, Jan Mac
