One NICU Top Finished

Here's my first completed top from that bag of scraps I showed you in the last post.  This is my 6th enlargement of a Nearly Insane block.  Mine is 30" finished.  The Nearly Insane one finishes at 5".  I fussy cut the sheep for the 16 patch. It's a bit dark but I think some Mom will want it for her little boy in the NICU.

I then went on to finish the units for Bonnie's Part 2.  I made my flying geese with the No Waste Method of Patchpieces.

I like this method as I don't have a lot of fabric in the colorway Bonnie chose for the mystery, and this method uses a lot less fabric for making flying geese.  Here's all I had left after making my 50 units.

While I was making them, I did a few more log cabins as leaders and enders. I now have 24 blocks finished and 6 more started.
Lastly, I've been promising my DH a pie, so I finally got a frozen peach filling from the freezer and made a crust, and baked this beauty.  My mom gave me a bunch of peaches back in June.  They were so sweet I didn't put any sugar in the filling.
I'm  linking to Amanda Jean's Finish it Up Friday, Sarah's Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?, Myra's Finished Or Not Fridays , and Jennifer's Wednesday Wait Loss. Do go by and see all the lovely postings. Blessings.


  1. I know your sheep have blue background but I know so many boys who love the color purple. I'm sure any new parent would love your quilts.

  2. What a wonderful NICU quilt! Someone will enjoy having it for sure. Wow, I can't believe how little waste that no waste method produces. Good job! Also good job on the leader enders. I keep thinking I'll do that but never seem to. And look how many blocks you have now as a result. Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss.

  3. Glad to see you are doing Bonnie's On Ringo Lake Mystery, too. Now I'll have someone else to follow along. I'm still on the fence whether or not I want to do this, and am curious to see how it will turn out. I was wondering why she didn't use the no-waste method of making flying geese (as you showed). It's my favorite way to do them.

    Your NICU quilt is very cute!

  4. It's a lovely wee Quilt and will be much loved I'm sure. This bag is going to produce some lovely quilts.

  5. Keep at it, Angie. You do so much good, and you're such an inspiration to me. When I saw you used log cabin blocks as your leader and enders, I thought, "Brilliant!" I need to get something beside my machine to do the same. It's almost like getting it done for free.

  6. It makes a darling little quilt. You never know what new moms will like these days. I say, "Anything goes!"

  7. I love it, great job! Thanks for linking up!

  8. Looks like someone was happy with that pie! That is a sweet NICU quilt. Love the fussy cutting on the sheep, and the scrap happy look of it.
