Remember when I did that mystery quilt – Seven Shirts, Seven Steps?
Yes I know it was a while ago and I still haven’t quilted it although in my defense I have pieced up the backing for it and selected the binding fabric so I guess that’s a start.
I had quite a few left over strips of fabric all nicely cut and just waiting to be used. But used in what was the question.
Finally I decided on half log cabin blocks alternated with gorgeous blue blocks (really must buy more of that), a thinish border of striped shirting and then bigger borders of green (another fabric I really must buy more of). I have the backing fabric organised – lovely black and white stripes and the binding cut and pressed – a rasberry red which matches the red in some of the blocks.
I love this quilt. Bright and cheery and fun to make and best of all it used up scraps that may have sat there for days…..months even…..without my knowing what to do with them.
Can’t get better than that.
