    I made these blocks over a year ago and banished them to the UFO pile. I finally decided to make them into a quilt for my cousin who is a priest in Jamaica and recently assigned to a new parish in the mountains where the nights get a bit chilly. I feel very pleased with myself because I finished a UFO and except for the batting and binding, all the fabric came from my stash.
    Hooray !!!!!!

    Wonderful gift for a deserving person. What a great thing to do. I have told myself no more buying fabric. I am using fabric from my stash, also. I hope I can accomplish quilts as nice as yours.
