I’m still working on the big bin of scraps and pieces. It never seems to end. Then, when I thought that I had everything under control, I found another bin on a shelf. That bin was full of precuts. I had followed another bloggers advice and cut all the quilt leftovers into different sized squares. They were supposed to be on hand when I needed squares for a project. That would have worked if they were not on the top shelf and out of sight. I will not precut again.
I have no idea how many tops I’ve made. There are doll quilts, baby quilts, community quilts and some bed size quilts. I did cut bindings and have backings for most of the quilts. Also bought enough batting to last a while.
There are still five piles of pieces on the sewing table. That adds up to five more doll and/or community quilts. Then, I’ll get busy and do some quilting.
The pinwheel blocks came from another quilter’s sewing room. There were two flying geese blocks in the same fabrics for each of the pinwheels. I sewed them on two sides of the pinwheels and added white strips to square the block. The blocks were placed horizontal and vertical in a diagonal setting. This is one of my favorite quilts from this project.
This project has taken a long time, but it has been fun to figure out how to use bits and pieces.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
One thought on “Still going on”
I like the pinwheel quilt too. It is a simple palette with a lot of punch. I think it’s because of the high contrast in values.
