Old and Blue
It's not too bad.
I really thought it was going to be on the really ugly side.
It has a lot more white space than I like these days.
It has not been doing anyone any good cooped up as a UFO in a bin for years and now it is a little closer to the finish line.
The top is made of old Double Disappearing Nine Patch blocks I swapped c. 2012.
I used to love to swap. I could buy one or two fabrics and make several blocks with those same fabrics and then receive blocks back with a variety of fabrics. I like quilts with a variety of fabrics. It's even better if those fabrics are scraps.
So, anyway...I unearthed these blocks and a different set of old and blue blocks at the beginning of the month and declared my OMG to finish a flimsy from at least one set of those blocks in July.
I actually started putting together the other set of blocks but discovered that I first need to cut pieces for a quilt that has most of my dark blue tone on tone fabric pieces reserved.
I made 12 more blocks from pieces set aside with this UFO and then it was pretty easy to get the top assembled after that. .
The top is 60 x 82.5 - a nice sized donation quilt.
I have a nice gently used sheet from the thrift store that is white with blue stripes to use for the backing. And I think I have a spool of variegated blue thread to use for quilting.
