    Question My First UFO!!!! A Third Time Around pattern - NOW WHAT?

    I've been quilting a year and it is my very first UFO!Made it to practice the pattern, used some FQ's from my trip to Jinny Beyer shop. A little wonky here and there. The blocks are about 18 1/2" square.

    What do you think I should do with it?

    Maybe four pillows each with a different color solid? I don't know how to make pillows. uh-oh.

    Appreciate any ideas
    thanks and Happy new year to all -

    I would sew all of the blocks together and make a quilt out of it. The colors are so pretty, very serene. What pattern did you use?

    Very pretty. I would put a sash on it and sew them together. A nice lap quilt or wall hanging.

    Ditto! ... and besides it'd save having to make those pillows!!!! (can you tell I am not a pillow-maker-lover??)

    Join them ... and then border them in the same fashion as you bordered the blocks. It'd make a lovely table topper or wall hanging, baby quilt, etc. Or if you have extra fabric a couple more blocks and you could have a small but useful lap quilt.

    Love the colours ... a nice soft and refreshing look!

    Beautiful blocks, like the others have said, put sashes aound the blocks put some boders on and make a quilt. I'm not fond of pillows either.
