March UFO ....

The 6 1/2" blocks for this quilt were made in a swap a few years ago

This is the quilt I made with my blocks - I took out the pinky ones as I specifically wanted this to be for my almost teenager eldest grandson....  


I custom quilted the blocks, with these twisted orange peels in the darker blocks


... and a curved ribbon in the lighter blocks
(hard to see but hopefully this second picture is better)


.. an a twisted ribbon look in the sashing - miles of sashing!!



It's a lovely warm masculine quilt ....




I was given some spare blocks which were added to my extra's and I have made up a second quilt using them.... the same but different!!

The squares have all been sashed and then recut on a very slight angle to give it a bit of a wonky look...




I'm pleased to say I have one of my UFO's finished this month - but I also managed to make another one too!! 

Righto, Gotto Go.... I'm going to have a dig in my drawer to find a SMALLER UFO to finish....
