Awesome finish, Teen! Your cousin will be thrilled with it.

Teen, that is so beautiful and happy! I guess you would call that a half-rectangle triangle unit?

Thanks everyone!! I made.a label for it today and hope to ship it next week in time for birthday.

joesmom...I have no idea what the block is called. I just measured out the size so I could use the entire layer cake. It worked since there is nothing left of it. You could alter the direction of the cut on half of the rectangles and the layout would be a diamond pattern. I didn’t think of that until it was all cut...lol.. good way to use an entire layer cake.

Nice finishes here! K completed the last top from her daughter's collection, so now she's sewing string blocks. This makes 4 UFOs we've finished for September & 28 since June. A local woman will pick up another load of quilts to hand out to needy residents when cold weather arrives. Our first day of fall was cloudy & cool, with some drizzle.

I am starting to collect UFO's again but with cause. I have three tops ready to layer and quilt but since COVID, I have not been able to use the large tables in my guild's meeting place to lay out quilts. Crawling about the floor, well, it just doesn't work any longer for my knees. So, my closet now has hangers of quilts/back/batting hanging and waiting. I do sandwich small quilts on my quilt wall, a sheet of insulation with a flannel cover, and that works well. Just need a larger space for my bigger quilts. Whine, whine, whine! Shame on me. This doesn't mean I don't have other unfinished UFO's https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/wave.gif only that I can't get the finished tops to the next step. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/boy.gif

I made a decision to drop a top off at my favorite longarm lady instead of quilt it myself. I'm not being lazy... I'm supporting a small business! Best part is she does binding also so when you drop it off it comes back DONE.
Pictures when it comes back.

Got stuck on the baby quilt...need fusible for the applique and forgot to buy some at work yesterday.

Home today with several irons in the fire. + 8 quarts of applesauce that I'm going to put in the freezer yet tonight. Cooked up a big batch of soup bones and stew meat in the crockpot overnight. So have a huge kettle of beef barley soup simmering on the stove. In between I've been quilting on my stars in the news UFO quilt...a couple of hiccups so guess it will not get finished today...Work T&F. Shop hop going on so really busy at the shop and tired when I do come home. Night all....

I'm joining late! UFO reduction has been my main theme this year, except I was foolishly doing it all alone these past months. In April I realized I had 17 quilts in progress (the oldest was ~20 years old) and was running out of space to work because of the piles. So I have been on a project-starting moratorium since then.

And you know what? I'm down to 14 UFOs now. One of those three took a long time to finish. I'm still not faithful to one project; when I'm in the mood to piece, I piece, albeit on one of the already in-progress quilts. I want to get down to 8 UFOs before I start anything new. It's so hard to resist!

(I'll reacquaint myself with how to include pictures later. It's late.)
