I promised I'd show you the backing I pieced for the basket mélange that I put together for that sew along.
The basket blocks were orphans from years ago; the friendship stars were from a swap years ago, as well. I filled in with fabric I KNEW I would never use in a quilt so VOILÀ. Can't say it reduced the stash any but in terms of numbers, there are a few less orphan blocks!
I also went back to my triangle gatherings, needing less than 10 more to be done with the entire project. Starting to think about how I'm ever going to set nearly 100 blocks all in bright colors! I think they go up to 93! I've already sewn a few others--just need to assemble the pieces.
I saw this little mini quilt on Instagram, and I think I'm going to make this for my latest (or for February...ooops) mini... I have just the fabrics in mind, too. Stay tuned...
I may have to buy that book! I did order the new book "Oh Scrap" because I thought it looked so cute... as if I need another book, right??? I have a pile I'm trying to get rid of!! ;-)
We're having a wet and rainy week, which is just perfect!!
