Working on some UFOs

I get five days off from work this week so I am hoping to work on some of these UFOs. I did a little bit of work on them a few weeks ago and put them on my design wall to see what they might look like.

I have fallen in love with Debbie Caffrey's book "Open a Can of Worms" My favorite pattern from that book is the Four Patches and Friends. It is so easy and a great way to use up some scraps. I always cut up 2 1/2 inch squares from any scraps I have left over from any other quilt projects. This pattern works very well with those squares. I have alot of flower scraps so this one I am making with those and I have another going with just all my diferent scraps.

I really would like to finish my grandsons fish bowl quilt. It took me awhile to collect all the fish material but it was fun doing it. Every bowl has a differnt kind of fish in it. Here are two of the rows that I have done already on my design wall. I still have to buy the sashing for in between the rows. I think I am going to try to find some blue or green colors.

Well I better go get sewing on these UFOs. These five days will go by to fast.
