Rams Christmas quilt

Here's my first UFO finish for 2010. It had mostly blue Christmassy fabric in the 9-patch and snowball blocks. It's meant for a boy who likes Scooby-Doo.

The back is polar fleece lauding the St. Louis Rams football team. Clever Catherine copied the ram symbol into the quilting design. The binding is made of various blue scraps of previous bindings.

Now I am putting together the "waste" triangles from the flannel Square-in-a-Square blocks. The original squares were so big that these cut-off corners are 5.5". For a first step I have joined them into "foursies", each triangle pointing the same way. There are 38 of these. I think with just making two more of the plain four-patch I will have enough to make a twin top 60" x 90".

But I am putting this aside in order to get the binding on my second UFO for January. And I need to get this done so I can take it to Show at the bee meeting tomorrow night.

I am working on a very similar design with plaid shirting fabric...a 9 patch and a snowball.
This is a great boy's quilt!
