A Mystery UFO
I pulled out another UFO project bag from the closet, and this was what was inside:
So, I have a pile of hourglass blocks, lots of extra fabric, and no pattern. I have no idea what I was planning for these fabrics, hence the mystery. But the teal and peach are really pretty together, so I’ll work with it.
I’ve been really happy with small projects that I can get done quickly, so I’ll make a table runner. I cut some rectangles to go with the hourglass blocks, and started playing with layouts.
There’s nothing wrong with a simple layout. After moving pieces around a few times, I came up with these two designs. Hmmmmm. I like them both. Since I have enough for two runners, I’ll make both!
Here are the tops sewn together:
It’s interesting to see what a difference turning the blocks makes. Which one do you like better? The one on top, or the one on the bottom?
Maybe I’ll draft a pattern. Or two. Not bad for a mystery UFO.
On to the quilting! I’ll show you that in my next post.
