Back in the Saddle...Again!
I must be crazy with all that is going on....but you know for the last two terms, I've presented graduates at school with lap quilts. The last term I took all the graduate's names and had someone draw two names to "win" the quilts. So here I am with my own graduating class and it's been eatting at me that I don't have anything for my OWN class! What can I do quickly and clear out some UFO blocks at the same time?
I recieved these 12" Ohio Star blocks when I moved here to SC from an online email list that I am on. I had toyed with the idea of making 6" blocks to go in with the 12" blocks and started making them, but to make it bed sized I was going to have to make a bunch more 12" blocks, and oodles of 6" blocks.....I got started, but it of course got way-laid as I got interested in things that were more interesting.. :c)
This morning I pulled these out...this is how many 12" Ohio stars were already done, and I also had a stack of the 6" ohio stars, and even the shirting alternate plain blocks were cut. I just started laying them out on the floor. I think if I add borders I can quilt this simply, with some all over design and it would be perfect for a graduation quilt for one of my classmates! I've got some other blocks I can also dig through to come up with another one, or I can always throw together a lap sized Yellow Brick Road in no-time flat and that will clear out some fun fabrics and I'll be able to carry on the tradition of graduation-quilt-giving with my OWN class.
