The finished UFO for CQ for Newbies

It was over a year ago that we started the UFO RR in CQ for Newbies.  I sent my ugly block out to see what could be done with it.  I'd say these ladies performed a miracle.  It came back as a beautiful and fun mardi gras block.  As usual, it sat around collecting dust until one day I saw it and was inspired to finish it off.

Here is the original UFO.

This is the block after the ladies finished stitching.

This is the finished block.  I had some metallic gold fabric which I used for the frame.  Then added some extras to finish it off.  Come to Mardi Gras!!!


  1. Beryl, I had SO much fun watching your block transform during the UFO RR. It turned out gorgeous. In fact, I did not think I could possibly like it more until I saw the way you finished it off. What a stunning treasure! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful block for all to enjoy.

  2. Wow! Thank you so much, Renee. I'm hanging it up where I can enjoy it every day. Party time!!

  3. WOW! Your border treatment is great. I'm so glad you finished it and get to look at it every day now
