UFO progress

 Back in December 2021 I posted about a guild project I was involved with - Adopt a UFO.  Anyone interested in participating could bring a UFO to the December meeting, hidden in a bag or box so it could be a mystery to the person choosing it.

I really lucked out with this small project kit that I chose - stars and 30s reproduction fabrics - some of my favorites! The pattern is called Granny's Stars.

This little project went with me to the Colorado wedding a week ago, and was a good project for riding long distances in the car.  I had already decided that I wanted a square project, so would only make 9 of the star blocks.  Each one is now appliqued onto a 6" square.  I finished the final 3 of them on Monday while hanging out with the grandkids.  

The lavender and yellow strips in the kit will become the first 2 borders, but I haven't chosen anything yet for an outer border.   I may end up using the extra squares from the kit to do a pieced border of some kind and skip all of the little applique.

You have a nice start and won't be long before it is done, unless you do the border in applique!

Looks like a fun project. I like the idea of adopting someone’s UFO.
