I am having sew much fun with scraps. And, I won’t ever run out! When I cut the pieces for blocks for a charity quilt to be sewn at the retreat (finished blocks to be shown on a later date) I just could not put the leftover fabric away. What to do. Such pretty colors but not enough for a quilt. Solids! I added some vibrant solids and did a stick pinwheel block.
There are four components to the full block. I had those done before the retreat and while there I pieced all four parts. I laid them all out and YIKES! I pieced half – yes half – of the blocks incorrectly. The other quilters encouraged me to immediately take them apart and some even helped. I was now on a mission. I re-pieced all 12 blocks, got my layout done, and pieced the rows before going to bed. Granted it was 1 AM, but I did it! First thing in the morning I joined the rows and voila!
Done. The quilt really needed another row but not a bit of the print fabric left. At home I pulled 6 of the solids and added the triple borders around to mimic the solid piecing in the blocks.
Such a pretty spring morning – I couldn’t resist placing the quilt on the oh so green grass even though it was wet. It’s just dew – no harm.
This is a UFO in my guild challenge but won’t count until it’s quilted and bound. Another day. Another post.
