What the Heck is a NewFO ?

This is a NewFO .  These are some of the Dots and Dashes ShooFly 6 inch blocks I'm supposed to be making for a swap with the members of the Block Swappers Yahoo Group.  I think I like them too much so will keep them myself. and make up a bunch of different ones (all the same in a set)  for the swap which is not due until March.  

I blogged about this swap and several others with Block Swappers a few days ago. 

This NewFO is called Jack's Chain.  I actually started this one and one that will be a little different.  I think this one will be a wedding quilt for one of the grandkids. No rush...they are all under the age of 10. I also swap 3 inch 9 patches with Block Swappers Yahoo Group so there should be no duplicates in this quilt. 

This January NewFO is part of a Tea Towel Challenge. I blogged about that too if you are curious.

And this NewFO is part of a Quilt Along.  I will be using up scraps and making blocks in complementary colors.

This NewFO - an 18 inch Wonky Log Cabin block also uses scraps and is one of the ways I used my blue scraps in January for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  This month's color is pink. I'm not sure I will have enough pink for a log cabin but we shall see. 


So, if by now you don't know what a NewFO happens to be you better go read up on the subject. My NewFOs are UFOs in the making.  My list will never get shorter at this rate.

And there is a linky party too.  I'm going to go party.

Your Shoofly blocks are adorable... I'd keep them too if I were you! So many great NewFOs in this post.

I love the reverse Shoofly blocks.

My goodness...lots of pretties on this page. I don't actually think you can be a *real* quilter until you've made one of those bug jar quilts.
