A UFO flimsy...completed!!


These 4 patch blocks were donated as a UFO.  I love the colors, and decided that it needed some white to offset the busyness of the blocks.


I had to trim them up and then chain pieced them until I had them in larger blocks of 4 blocks each.


I wasn't sure what I would do for the outer border, but knew that there were a lot of pre-cut 4 1/2 in blocks included in this donation.


Here is the completed flimsy!  It measures 62 x 78.  I am sure that there is someone out there that will love this quilt.


Linking to TGIFF with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.  Check out her work and the work of all the other bloggers linking up.  So exciting!  This is the last TGIFF of the year. HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!

I love the happy mood of this color combo, and I think the sashing really makes the blocks pop and keeps them from being overwhelming. so pretty!

Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
