FNSI June

 My day for FNSI hosted by Wendy started with a ufo from a few years back.

I thought i'd be chain piecing 2-1/2 squares for it but when i opened the tin I was using for storage i found it was quite full of squares already pieced together. :) The original pattern i'm following is a square quilt but i wanted it rectangle. I had to unpick what i'd sewed of the quilt to get a rectangle shape. I manged to add 3 rows each side, 4 top & bottom then the grey borders before it was time to stop. As i'm winging it i need to work out how many rows to add to get it to a decent single bed size.

Or maybe i should quit while i'm a head & turn this into a lap quilt & just make the square quilt .lol. Not like i don't have enough scraps to cut out more 2-1/2" squares. I've plenty of the gray fabric to start again.

Night time saw me stitching the 6th of the 10 stitcheries i needed to redo.

Pop over to Wendy's blog for links to who joined in.

Happy Stitching,

I prefer rectangle quilts but I think if I was you I’d just keep this one as it is…
You always do lovely stitcheries.

Love a good scrap busting quilt. Well done.

My vote is keep going on the scrappy quilt for a bed-sized ... since you have enough gray fabric and scraps. It looks really neat!

If you're not feeling it, I'd add a border and call it good. The scrappy quilt is cute though.
