Guild UFO

I went to my first guild UFO day of the year today. As some of you might know, I generally take traditional sewing or quilting to that and keep my art quilting for home.
Last year, I got a quilt done. Today, I put the binding on my Halloween runner which I won't show again until I get it hand sewn down. Then,I finished this organizer that goes over a sofa or chair arm.

It will be a Christmas gift.
The last thing that I did, but again didn't take a picture of was to start string piecing some 2 1/2" inch scrappy squares together. I want to use them as a border for my postage stamp scrappy star quilt. I'm hoping to get this one finished at the next few UFO days and at the fall retreats.
This is how it was in the spring. I have the black all the way around now. The next border will be the four patches.

I will have a final border that matches the corner stone blocks.
Tomorrow is supposed to be a rainy day, so I may get a little more stitching done on my latest art piece.
