I watched a video that was posted at Subee Sews Quilts of bits Bonnie Hunter's guild lecture. At the end of the video she says something about grabbing a UFO off the shelf and work on it. So I did. The instructions for this quilt are from Mary Quilts (lots of great quilt patterns!) and can be found here.
Actually I spent a good share of the day working in my sewing room, moving things around, exploring bins to find new treasures. I have a big bin of UFOs and wasn't real sure what all was inside and I found this gem from a couple years ago. I remember putting it away because I needed to finish making border blocks. I had the side borders done but not the top and bottom.
Sometimes I just like to sit and make string blocks. So I have lots of them in my bin and there was enough straight ones to make the remaining borders. I had enough of the center strip fabric for the little inner border but not for binding so that will be scrappy. I'm not happy with the corner blocks and think I will be if I rotate them or put on something else entirely.
All in all it's been a great retreat at home weekend. I got the back made for RRCB, some serious reorganizing and worked on this UFO. The long arm is ready for a week full of quilting. Hopefully this little jewel will be done soon.
