Happy New Year!

I love the beginning of a new year. It is generally a quiet time for me so I usually pick a UFO to try and finish. This year I have got out my late MIL's doona cover and am giving it some new life. It is a poorly pieced top with no wadding or backing, bright florals that look like they're from the 60's or 70's.

Instead of unpicking each block (they are around 14" finished), I am just cutting all the pieces a little smaller than the original pieces. I drew the pattern up on graph paper and made two templates from templastic. The centre square is 4" square unfinished.
I have an assortment of old fabrics picked up from Op-shops to use as well.
My unfinished blocks are 10 1/2"
