An Old UFO

During the summer months, I find I like to have some portable hand work available to work on.  I recently dug out an old English Paper Piecing project and made a bit of progress.

It appears I haven't worked on these since August of 2015!

I finished up another hexagon star.  This piece measures about 12" across.

So that means I now have a whopping 9 blocks finished.  I should probably come up with a better plan for color placement so I can assemble the blocks needed for completing the quilt.  And remember to put that plan in writing and place it in with the blocks.  I think my plan was to use the darkest gray blocks as an outside border with the orange stars in the center.

I have a long ways to go!
But maybe I can make a bit more progress this summer...

Linking Up:


  1. Those are so pretty! I'm glad you're getting them back out to work on! Have you seen Koka Quilts' hexie star project?

  2. So the blocks are a good size, not fiddling with tiny 1 and 1/2" sides. How many are you aiming for?

  3. It looks like you had a good plan there, back in 2015! I have a long running EPP too, for just the same reason!

  4. Well it's high time you do a few more blocks then! It's going to be gorgeous. I love the combination of colors too!

  5. They look great. I've been working on old WIPs, but I don't have any that old...anymore LOL

  6. I love them. Hand projects like this always take forever. I think that’s the best part!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each and every one and try to respond with an email.
