Look What I Found...

I was looking through a box that had some old UFO quilts and I found two Ziploc bags of fabric. The first one was full of these 3 inch squares in yellows, greens, and pinks. I have absolutely no idea what it was going to be. It's a lot of fabric though! Each stack (four total) is 2 inches high of fabric squares

and then there are these half square triangles. I was sewing pinks to yellows. What was the pattern??? I wish I knew.

I'm going to lay all the squares out on my living room floor and see if I can come up with a quilt - especially since all the cutting has been done and it's just a matter of sewing it all together.

In the second bag I found this quilt, also all cut out. It's at least 10 years old because I was using the freezer paper method of applique.

This is the only block that was sewn. I still like it. I have a big piece of yellow with it that I remember was going to be the sashing and borders.

I think I will start with the squares first and see if I can come up with a quilt.

What a fun find! I love that flower block.

I remember having some of those fabrics. I think they are from the Aunt Grace's attic line.

Gosh! I never have finds lie that! I only find dust, cobwebs and the odd hairy spider. Love the flower design, is it appliqued on?

Looks like you struck gold with all of those pre-cute squares! Absewlutely! You must make something. And those other pieces - looks like 50's vintage prints to me. Cute.
I've been in Key Largo as you know for the week - guess what I came home to? While the cat's away.... the mice traded in our Harley for a brand new Ultra Classic. Who hoo! We knew we were going to get one in the next few years - but seeing as though dealers are willing to deal right now because of the economy - we got it now. Dark, dark red - oh soooo sexy. I'll be posting pictures soon.
Hope all is well with you Mary. Let's see some stitching girl.

I'm kinda scared to look through my stash - i'm pretty sure there are lots of ufo's floating around.
can't wait to see what you make.
