Yesterday it was time to pull it out again and finish it up as I ponder whether or not to start a new project. When I grabbed the container from the closet, there were 12 finished blocks and plenty of nine patches for the rest. This morning I finished up the paper pieced tree bases and added the tops. It didn't take very long at all. Whenever I pull out an abandoned project, I am always amazed at how quickly an unloved box of bits and pieces can turn into a quilt. So now that the 25 blocks are done, it shouldn't take long to cut out some more sashing strips and cornerstones. I hope to use up the rest of the nine patches in the border. After that I can decide what is next.
In honor of this very scrappy project, I am going to link up with Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap. Go check it out for more scrappy Sunday fun.
