UFO #7 My Sewing Friends and Amy's BOM

Ok, this is my last post that says UFO #7's not a UFO anymore! Here's another finished object for 2010. Yes, that's right, you heard #7 is complete and I have the rest of the month to work on other things. I do have to still put a label on it and I plan on doing that. I want to make it with my computer and I'm going to try that out. I have some solution to soak my fabric in to make the ink not fade. I think it's called Retayne...anyway, I'm going to try it out and I'll let you know how it works. I've done labels off the computer before without it on one quilt and when I washed it the label faded..The words are still there and you can see it but it sure washed out alot. I'll try this stuff and test it and let you know how it works. I'm going to try it out and do all the testing on it before I sew it on.

Here's My Sewing Friends:

I was able to work on two of the blocks from Amy's BOM. Two down and one to go for this month. I printed the last block out and didn't get to do it yet. It's a little more tedious than these two and you have to do templates for it so, I saved it until last.

These blocks were fun to do.

(Please note that these are on my new design wall)

Blackford's Beauty block:

Mosaic star went together very easily the way Amy told us to do it. She suggested using the Easy Angle ruler and making half square triangles instead of the old way of set-in seams. The Easy Angle ruler is my favorite ruler of all times. I love it and think it's a great tool. She also suggested on the layout to put the block together in stages. 4 of the sections will look like a W, 1 star and the corners will be 4 patches. I layed the block out first and decided Amy's suggestion was the best way to go. So, I sewed the 4 W sections, the 4 pathches and the star together, then layed the block out. Sewed the sections together as they should go and it went together so easily. Easy Peasy....a finished block.

Mosaic Star:

Yes, Amy, my block finished at 12 1/2"! Yeah, I had my doubts too but it all came out ok...

Yay! Nothing feels better than the last stitch taken in a nagging UFO. Your BOM's are looking fabulous. Now it is on the the templates. Good luck!
