Shoo Fly

My quilty finishes continue with an oldie but goodie -

I started this in June 2014 as a block-a-day quilt-along on Aunt Marti’s 52Quilts blog. I was pretty new to quilting back then and these blocks show it. Not exactly square . . .

 On our bed.

But with the aid of a square-up ruler - and a good teacher - I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out. 

Plus I have enough of the “reverse” blocks to make a second quilt. I’d originally planned to use these in the same project but it just looked like a hot mess. 

 Hot mess. Tore it down and started over. 

Now I’ll have two new quilts AND two fewer UFO’s* in my collection. Win-win!

* UFO = Unfinished Fabric Object.
