A tiny little UFO!

I received 2 donated tiny UFOs this week. 


 

 
The instructions were poor at best, and this picture is small.  After a lot of sewing and unsewing, I finally got it all figured out.  The center squares are a pre-printed 2 1/2 x 2 1/2in. square.
 


I had a fun sewing day with my daughter!  It is so much fun to watch her sewing progress.  She's a natural born sewer!  Thanks for the great day little girl!


It didn't lay very flat, so I decided that I needed to do an all over loose meander in hopes that it would cooperate..


I used Auriful #50.  I had 3 little sunbonnet Sue squares left, so I pieced them into the back.  I used a 2 in. binding instead of the usual 2 1/4in.  That outside border is only 1 1/2in wide and I didn't want the binding to overwhelm the quilt.  I sewed the binding down by machine.
 


This quilt ended up at 26 x 26.  It will make a great wall hanging or a doll blanket!

The winner of my giveaway is Kelli from "Seriously..I Think It Needs Stitches"! Congratulations Kelli!!
