What Have You Done to my UFO?

Another challenge at Mailblocks, we exchanged UFO projects that have been stumping or not inspiring us, for another to finish. I really had a great time with this, and I would say it was a huge success.

This is Sandra's UFO. Since I have known Sandra for a while now, I knew when I first saw this, she would think it was boring and definitely not inspiring. Sandra is a purple, pink, blue fan, so I used purple print to make the logs into stars and a purple floral that had a lot of the log colors in it, to make the star sashings.


This was my UFO, foundation pieced triangles that I just started playing around with one day, but failed to have the inspiration to finish. But I loved this purple/mango color combination, so they seemed to be the perfect UFO for me to submit.
Wow! Just look at Susan's incredible finished top! She calls this Falling Stars, which unknown to her makes it doubly special! Not only do I have an awesome quilt to hang over my bed, but at the ripe old age of almost 40, I have never seen a falling star. So this is so cool that she would make this form me in this particular setting.

I absolutely love what you did with the 4-patches! That was really inspired. The one for you is great, too. I love black with bright colors. I can't believe you haven't seen a falling star! Oh my gosh! You'll have to get out in August when the meteor showers are going on. Pleides, I think is August.
