I finished the last of the floral applique blocks this weekend and now I need to figure out how to use them with the large and small pieced blocks. These are not too old yet - just the 2015 Saturday Sampler blocks. But I don't want them to languish in the UFO pile for too long because they are so pretty.
These 20" rail fence blocks have languished in my UFO pile for several years. Maybe 6 or 7 years? I have no idea. I used a jelly roll and the number of blocks just didn't work out well. There are only 8 of them and they were set aside along with about 3 yards of a brown coordinating fabric because I had no idea how I wanted to arrange them.
The last set of blocks I pulled out are these X blocks. These were done with the special X ruler. I liked the blocks but got bored with the colors I think. There are only 6 of the green ones and 10 of the rust ones and plenty of leftover fabric. Again - some planning needed in order to get these to the flimsy stage. I'm not sure of the age of these blocks either but I know I bought the ruler on a guild bus trip to Nebraska, so that would have been either 5 or 7 years ago. It's time to finish it up.
