I always have way too many projects in progress…between the first and last step. I recently bought a box of fabric at a yard sale for $10. The lady running the yard sale said she was not a quilter…She had been making square dance costumes. Out of quilting cotton fabric? Who knew!
When I was taking a break from ironing the monstrous pile of scraps (I am still not finished!), I came across a very nice sister’s choice quilt picture. My sisters (5 of them) have been politely requesting quilts for a couple of years. I decided that I would use a bunch of the scraps to do just that! Here is my beginning….
The background fabric is an off white with peach and light green designs all over it…very 80’s. My sisters will love it because I said so. (From a distance it is just another background). There was about 3 yards of this in the box.
Here are just a few example blocks. I really like the teal one and surprisingly the Christmas fabric one. All my beginning blocks have the maroon star points, same background, and black with roses squares. The other 4 blocks are from the bin of 2 1/2″ pre-cut scraps. I used anything that was light or bright that had 4 blocks available.
It will probably take me a decade to work on these in “between” all of the other things that I am working on simultaneously. My level of quilting ADHD brings a whole new meaning to multi-tasking!
Enjoy your Sunday…rest, relax, and sew,..sew…sew…
