Just getting photos onto my blog page today can be called progress.  Some days technology can be a bit of a pain.  This year I've made a committed effort to move projects forward or get rid of them.  Opening boxes and bags has brought a few surprises, this being one of them.

Playing with a couple of FQ from an old Amy Butler collection resulted in a few star blocks being stitched up and abandoned, along with a few "coordinates".  I looked at the contents, pulled out the solids as they are timeless and prepared to donate the balance.
And then I started to play. 
Making random blocks and trying them all out gave promise that I could make something good out of these two FQ's and the remaining polka dots from quilts I made in 2006

Flying geese, a zig zag section, a wonky rectangle, I started to see promise.
My seam ripper was put to good use, as I stitched and unstitched sections of FG over and over and over.......
By adding in a bit of checker board, a few more strips of strips, and keeping track of measurements as I committed to sections, I could see some possibilities.

The final layout.  This is the third in a series of quilts I've been working on.  There are a few more "in process" but I'll wait to show them another time.

During the last few weeks, I've been moving my finished quilts to a new location.  I've had to clean out a closet and my quilt storage room.  Yes, things got real.  I completed 10 backs, and here are a few of them.  I am feeling like the Cobbler whose kids have no shoes, except I'm the quilter!

Life is good!
Keep stitching,
