Forming a New Plan

These cute little scrappy stars were a thank you gift for me from guild members for the year I was president.  They have been sitting in a zip lock bag

along with these fun pinwheel log cabins.  They are from a bee I was in. 

 I know I had a plan for putting them together, but for the life of me I can’t remember what that plan was.  They may have stayed in the zip lock bag had it not been for my list of 12 UFOs I made at the beginning of the year for my quilt guild.  Each month a number gets drawn and you are suppose to move that project a little further along to completion.  Wouldn’t you know that this month they picked this one.  I guess I could just donate a fat quarter and not move it along.  But just couldn’t bring myself to do that.  I would so much rather have a chance at winning a bunch of fat quarters and have a project closer to being done.  So I came up with a plan.  I sewed the star blocks together.  Put the pinwheels around in a border.  They made a bigger border than the stars needed so I cut out a bunch of bright scrappy geese to fill in the gap.

I hoping to get them done today.  I’m also toying with a piano key border beyond the log cabins.  So although I was not to happy about this one’s number getting drawn.  As a new plan forms for it’s completion I’m pretty happy indeed.

    The scrappy stars are a great way to honor an outgoing president. I can see why you treasure them so much.

    Love the blocks. We all have those UFOs don't we. I'm pulling those things out to work on myself.
