UFO Progress and Scrap Play

    The dog UFO is finally getting done. My younger granddaughter will be 5 next month and I should have it finished for her birthday.  The center section is all sewn in the photo. 

Since then I have added a breaker border and flange. Here is a peek at the border fabrics.  I used the yellow for a ½” 3D flange.

    I needed some play time with this month’s scrap color of “yellow”. A really pretty yellow fabric is often hard to find.  Digging through my stash of precut units, I found I was very low on yellow. I only found 1 – 4 ½” square so that size wonky star blocks will have to wait.  I had to cut a few more 3 ½” squares and 2 ½ by 4 ½” bricks to even make these blocks. 

Hope you get to enjoy some sewing or quilting time.

Check out SoScrappy for inspiration with scraps,


  1. Nice YELLOW blocks for the RSC and you even incorporated it into your current quilt. Good work!!

  2. The quilt is doggone cute. Some colours are like that. I found teal and will find orange tough as I don't use those colours often.

  3. My first,view of your dog quilt and it blew me away. What a lucky girl! I do like your two scrappy blocks. Keep up the good work!

  4. Oh, how cute! What's not for a granddaughter to love!
