UFO Progress

Well Texas Tumbleweeds got finished.  If you missed that, find it here.  So it’s time for a new UFO.  Earlier I had pulled Fair and Square but after I got the string triangles done, I left it again.  UGH!  So I had a little time so I started back up again.

If you remember, I said that I wasn’t going to follow the pattern and make the string blocks into separate blocks.  Instead I was going to add the string triangles onto the blocks.  Then they were a little big so needed to be trimmed down.


If I’m completely honest, I think one of the reasons why I left this sit again was because I was dreading the trimming of these blocks.  I got up a little courage and decided that worse case scenario was that I would have to redo a block…no biggie.  I figured out that I want the blocks at 14 1/2″…and that what I did with the three blocks I had sewn.  I laid them out on the floor hoping they might inspire me to get some more block done….what do you think?Fair-and-Square-11

I’m loving it.  Mine are done in jewel tone prints…not shirts like the original pattern.

My kiddos have been doing a good job at napping all at the same time.  So good that over the course of two days I got the rest of the blocks pinned and ready to be sewn.  I’m pretty excited at the prospect.


Most of all I’m glad that I got over my fear of trimming those blocks!!

You’ll find me back here next week. I’m hoping I have a few more of the Fair and Square blocks sewn. Little by little I’ll get it done!!
