Boo Boo Blocks

That is now this Quilts name in my head - can you imagine when I go to present it - I will tell the Veteran - your Quilt is named Boo Boo Blocks.... and everyone will probably look at me like I sprung a leak!

I will need to rename it before hand!

Anyways - the 6  blocks - that were 12 1/2 to 13 inches in size are now their own quilt and I believe they are happy!   It has a back all chosen, and is in my Queue to Quilt....

Here it is - in all of it's glorious Scrappy Ness!!
I love it!

Here are the blocks when I was trying to figure out how I wanted it to look
The yellow tags were the block sizes 
I knew I had a bad memory and would forget as soon as I looked away!

Each strip of fabric
reminded me of another quilt!
Too cool

And laying them out to make it the right size
I sort of took over the house - 
Good thing my Men are nice to me!

And now....
It needs to be quilted !

Now - just a little precursor - the Block drive is now finished - you can still send blocks ( we will love them I promise) but they won't count for prizes. Wednesday I will have a recap for you

This last weekend was sort of like the Super Bowl of Quilts of Valor - Veterans Day was well awarded.  ( I have no idea if that makes sense or not - but keep coming back - it will!)

I love the Boo Boo Blocks quilt!! Adding the random bits of leftovers made it extra special.

The blocks are real poppers....a great way to use leftover colorful scraps from QOVs!

Nice idea and they look great. Happy Stars!

Yes, you will have to come up with another name before it gets presented to a veteran. lol Nice save! You are very creative with those not so perfect blocks. That takes talent.

Terri said...

The centers remind me of twinkle stars. :D

I love it! What a great way to rescue the blocks.

Gayle Bong said...

Yes the blocks are happy now! Love the name; much better than orphan blocks. That's what they are otherwise, aren't they?

Patti said...

I really like the way you put the color choices together

Kate said...

You'd never know the blocks didn't start off a perfect. Great way to use those mis-matched pretties.
