Apprentices finish UFOs

Although these next 2 finishes arent counted in my UFO tally, I thought I would share them nonetheless, as they are  using my UFO orphan blocks.

My 2 young apprentices did their first sewing today.  They found some stray 4 patch squares that I have had floating around in my UFO collection for some years. I also had a practice machine embroidered piece.  My 2 young Grandies, aged 7 and 5 collected up all the bits they could find, as they wanted to make quilts for their Teddy Bears.


Charlies has 4 x 4 patches, 2 squares and the embroidery piece, while Kai's is made up of 6 x 4 patches.  They then sewed on the borders, and a backing.  They look rather pleased with their work.

The boys did a wonderful job on their quilts. They look very pleased with themselves and they should be. The little guy on the right could use his extra block to make a little pillow for his teddy bear.
