Lost and Found UFO's


I was looking for some fabric to make a quilt and in my digging for just the right fabrics, I found a forgotten project box with a few unfinished projects.  I pulled the forgotten projects out and decided it was time to finish them.
This is the remainder of a Layer Cake I used to make a different quilt.  I vaguely remember making these blocks with the leftovers when the other quilt was done.  I got to work, sewing these blocks onto a quilt top.  After I was finished, I remembered that there was a particular way to sew these blocks into rows and I hadn't done it right.  Oh well, I liked this way.
The top little small so I found a few pieces of fabric that would work borders and then I went to the fabric store where I had purchased the Layer Cake and they actually had some yardage left.  
This was the second UFO in the box.  The entire piece was done and I had enough blocks to make one more row so I sewed them together and made a small lap top.  I will need to put a border on this.
The hidden box also contained this stack of blocks.

And these left over blocks from my Tulip Quilt.  I think they will make a fun Spring table runner.  If I finish it now, it will be ready next Spring.  My goal is to finish these projects by the end of June....
