a UFO finish

I have been working on going thru everything and sorting things out.  Since I've moved 3 times in three years and two of those moves were only 9 months apart things got to be kind of a mess and really needed sorted out and organized.

I have no idea what I was originally going to do with these blocks.  I know I made them at least 6 years ago because we moved from that house in 2005.  Anyway, there were 10 of them.  6 of one color scheme and 4 of another color scheme.  And I had some yardage of two fabrics with them.  I put 9 of the blocks together and added borders for a nice size throw and turned the extra block into an accent pillow to go with it.  I love the way the plaid and gingham work with the florals.

I have one more set of UFO blocks put together.  It's not quilted yet though.

the next challenge project

The next challenge project for the guild I'm in is called "Kansas, My Kansas or what ever state you're from.

I have a rough sketch of what I'm going to do.  I'm going to use the Kansas dugout blocks in dark green and tan at the bottom.  Then the Kansas troubles block in two shades of blue and white and at the top two lines of flying geese.  I'll applique wheat and sunflowers on it and it'll be framed with a wood print fabric I have.
