UFO Monday.

 As you can see I am making good progress on my reproduction doll's quilt made from half inch hexagons. I have deviated from the design a bit with my colour choices and I'm pleased with the result.
 It's surprising how quickly it grows when you focus on a UFO of your own. Lol. I have also made some more hexie flowers for my Insanity quilt but have decided to tackle some smaller UFOs at the same time or I nay not get any others finished.
    It's surprising how many little UFOs I have as well, a lot from online block parties or from classes I took. Some of these may be repurposed as smaller projects to get them finished. There's often a good reason why the project stalled. Often due to list interest but also because I didn't have a specific purpose and then ran out of time.
 This was a hexagon block from an online site which was making a hexagon block each month. I think I made the first 2 months and then lost interest as I didn't like the 3rd block. This was the first block and I thought it would make a nice baby quilt to donate.
I have made borders and added hand stitched hexies to the border.  Think the original project was started 6 or 7 years ago and it was uncovered 2 years ago when I started the borders. I'm planning on getting this one finished next.
Hopefully I will have more to share next week.
Hugs, Jan Mac

That UFO block has made a lovely centre panel for your baby quilt. Super idea!

It's great to finish old UFOs.. The Hexie block has turned into a cute Baby quilt.
