Saturday's Discovery

Quite a while ago, another blog friend suggested a good quilting project would be 'An Orphan block' idea.   I didn't find any for me but did find the pile of blocks from my grandmother.   I am still waiting for a trip to the fabric store so I can work out a background strategy for that one but looking for something else today, I found this orphaned quilt!  I believe it was started while I still lived in NY so at least 8 years ago!
 I re-familiarized myself with the fabrics, and the blocks left to do and the layout!   I soon got into the swing of things and enjoyed the 'Quilt in a Day' series by Eleanor Burns once again.  
 I have these blocks arranged just so but I have one problem.   I rarely like a square quilt;  I have one block left over and that would mean another two blocks would need completing.   I have enough fabric... As I write this, I think I have my decision made to work another row.
In between piecing, I ground the edges smooth and drilled the jewelry fitting hole and made the wire bail for completing the resin jewelry I made in Georgia!   I might just tackle this resin thing one more time........!

  1. I love basket blocks. I made a cherry basket quilt many, many years ago. I wonder what ever happened to it? Hmmm...

  2. Woohoo! A long forgotten UFO -- so you do have projects (well, at least one) that you haven't completed after all! ;-)

    How to make a square quilt with ten blocks? Fun puzzle. I'm working on that.

    You do the loveliest things.

  5. Hey, I'd forgotten that quilt, too! I agree with your "one more row" decision...I made one square quilt and it was probably my last square one ever!

    The jewelry came out just lovely!
