FOUND! UFO'S I THOUGHT I'D LOST IN THE MOVE!








What's so great about these unfinished items and why aren't they even ironed? Because I thought they were gone forever--lost in a move but as you can see they are found! WOOT! I couldn't wait to take some photos and celebrate!
These projects aren't finished because they are from my "homespun plaid" period. I think that was the early 90's? At any rate, I do love the applique quilt and will finish it some way. It's also a cautionary tale--store the background fabric with your applique blocks! I think mine got used up in other projects....sigh....
There are 16 blocks in the applique quilt--all done by hand. I think I was going to do 20 blocks but am going to use the 16 and just finish it up. Maybe with a red and black plaid border? Red sashing? No sashing? Happy for opinions! So WOOT! It's home!

These applique blocks are very pretty. I would definetly use sashing. And red sounds like a good idea. But then, I am no expert quilter. However, I think red sashing would make the flowers pop! Good luck.
