Buggy Barn UFO


My UFO for July started the month as a pile of blocks.  These were made when a group of friends decided to get together for a “Buggy Barn Day”.  We chose our patterns and our fabrics and enjoyed a day of stacking, cutting, and sewing.  I chose the Folk Art Flowers pattern and selected a pile of country red, blue and brown fabrics.  I managed to include a few pieces of recycled shirts in the collection. 


In July I sewed the blocks together and used the leftover fabrics to make borders.  I am eager to get this one quilted, but I am waiting until I decide where it will be going.  . 

The weather has been very hot here – which makes staying inside and sewing an attractive alternative to being out in the heat of the day.  The Orca Bay top has benefitted from this extra sewing time.  I’ve made good headway on getting the blocks sewn together.  Here is a peek at how it is turning out.


Not sure when this one might be finished, but it is exciting to see all those pieces finally coming together.

Aren't Buggy Barn patterns fun to do? Yours is cute. Congrats on getting it finished in July. I LOVE your Orca Bay one -- the colors are wonderful. I think it's one of the prettiest one I've seen in a while.

I love this flower pattern...very cool! I might just have to put that on my to-do list!
