The Unpacking Begins.....

I still have things to unpack that aren't quilt or yarn related, but I couldn't resist opening a few of the boxes in my sewing room.  Here is the first UFO that I opened.  This is the center and some of the blocks to the Kim McLean quilt Hearts and Flowers from the book Quilt Romance by Kaffe Fassett.

Then I found this tin with the Primitive Gatherings tiny thimble template along with a lot of red and shirting thimbles already cut and a couple of pieces of fabric with tiny stars to make a flag.

I need to count my baskets for the Trick or Treat basket quilt from When the Cold Wind Blows by Blackbird Designs.  I started making these baskets in a reduced size and then switched to the larger size in the book.  I think the ones in the book finish at 5".  I think I've made some that will finish at 3".

These blocks are from Holly and Mistletoe from When the Cold Wind Blows.  That is one of my favorite quilt books.  The center applique' wasn't in the box with the blocks and other fabrics.  I won't panic just yet.

These are hexagons that my Mom sewed by hand.  She made enough blocks to finish a quilt for my son and daughter-in-law, but she passed away before she could finish my daughter's quilt.  She has been gone almost 18 years.  I really should finish this one......

I've missed my Kaffe and Brandon fabrics.  This is my small container.  I know there is more somewhere else.

Lime, black and white.  I have a plan for these fabrics.  I'd forgotten about the Betty Boop fabric!

I'll open a few more boxes tomorrow and show you what I find.

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch!
