One is done - Millies quilt, and one is a nice hand -piecing thing that I can do in bed ! But the third one !!!!
I go to a small quilting group every Tuesday. No pressure at all there just a few ladies doing a bit of stitching and a lot of talking ! Last Tuesday my friend Jill casually hands me a bag and says " I was wondering if these are any good to you - I know you like scrappy quilts."
"Ooh yes please ! " said me snatching her hand off.
Got home and tipped them out thinking I will just sort them !
Some of these were strips that I've put to one side for another time but a lot of them were odd shaped little bits. Too good to throw away that's for sure. The cogs were starting to turn. In my scrap drawer I have a lot of bigger scraps and I was thinking of a way to combine them. Because the little scraps were uneven I thought paper piecing would be a good idea. Combined with a bit of left over cream calico here's the block I came up with.
Each block measures 4inches finished so I have a way to go to make anything of a decent size. This will be an inbetweeny project I think. I've roughly cut some triangles of the 2 sizes I need and they're perched next to my machine ready for when I have a few spare minutes.
So really it's not a new quilt - more of a time-filler ! I've almost convinced myself lol !
