Design Wall Monday

2016 UFO Busting is full speed ahead.

UFO #2 started out as 5 Dresden Plate blocks appliqued the background,
2 plates ready to applique.
The background fabric went missing so I used something else.
After playing in EQ7 for a while,
I came up with a plan.

 Friday afternoon I cut 2 more colors and made the plates.
Saturday morning I appliqued the final 4 plates while watching a weird movie.

Saturday afternoon the sashing, cornerstones, borders and binding were cut. 

Sunday I put the top together.
It's amazing how fast it goes when everything is prepared, ready to go. 
I plan to get some lavender flannel for the back and
quilting will be simple. 

This pile of half square triangles need pressed and the dog ears clipped off.
Then they will be pinned in groups of 10 and put in the Jamestown Landing bin.
I love how fast they add up when I don't pay attention. 

To finish off Sunday evening/night,
I had to make the Hearts Aflutter block for 

This morning I'll be hanging around Blogland
