Design Wall Monday

On my Design Wall is a One Block Wonder project from last year, or perhaps the year before, oh heck, it was from April of 2008 - are you smug now?  What is even more sad is that there are still the same number of blocks on the wall.  If I can cut up the rest of the fabric, perhaps this could be a retreat project for this weekend, but first I have got to locate the fabric . . .

Alright, while searching for the OBW fabric, I came across some additional blocks that I've already made a top from.  The top is ready to be quilted, but needs backing.  So I am going to make a scrappy pieced back from the leftover border fabric and leftover sashing fabric and the unused blocks!

Still searching for the OBW blocks and have now realized that I do not know where the book is either - found another completed top and some yardage that may work for the backing!

Well, I am giving up on the remaining fabric + the book.  Guess I'll work on these additional UFOs since I've got all of the pieces/parts for them.  Check out what others have on their Design Walls at Patchwork Times!

Love the one block wonder. I'm even worse than you...I bought some fabric (two different ones) whose express purpose was do to a one block wonder. And they still sit in the stash! I know you will finish yours soon!

This post sounded so much like me. I have at least 2 UFOs that old, or older, that I think about working on and while I am thinking I become distracted by something else. I guess it's the nature of this craft. ;-)

Your post made me smile. In the top of my closet I have some older than 2008 projects, too. It's nice to know I'm in good company.

your Obw blocks are great-I hope you find your book and fabric and can work on it at some point soon!
