Up at the lake the past few days, I sifted through a couple of unfinished projects and a box of spare parts(four patches, nine patches, half square triangles that I grabbed to take along.

UFO #1 is almost 150 string pieced blocks. They are 5 1/2 inches square.  I figured I could make them into a Veteran's Quilt.  I cut setting triangles, some extra squares and binding from the red star print. If I figured correctly, I will have a 63 x 70" top.  Back in the box to pull out when I need something to sew.

UFO # 2 is my Charlie Brown quilt that I keep putting aside.  Thursday,when I was sewing with friends down in Goldsboro, I found this great Moda red at Thistle Bee Quilt Shop.  I bought 2.5 yds.
I wanted to make this a little bigger than the original pattern.  So I cut a few more large nine patch units and found 36 small nine patches in the spare parts box.

Love this red with the yellow and green leaves for the large sashing. Back in the box!
At the lake, my bar is my cutting area.  I had planned to show what I did with my box of spare parts but blogger seems to slow for me this evening.  Next time.
