Today, I went into my studio to do a bit of cleaning up before I started working on the backing fabric for the string pieced wallhanging. I got everything cleaned up and then started looking for the backing fabric. I opened a box of UFO’s to see if there was anything that I could use and out popped this forgotten bag of bits……
These were the leftovers from the Mother-Daughter Flower Garden quilt that I made last year. …..
I had tried several different setting blocks and border blocks before I decided on the final version and this is a bag of all of the bits that weren’t used.
There are 14 finished blocks (along with the bits for 1-1/2 more)……
These blocks will finish at 9 inches.
In addition, there are the following…..
38 Half square triangles that will finish at 2 inches
62 Half square triangles that will finish at 1 inch.
6 Corner units
and 14 of these un-named units,
and a mass of other shapes and sizes of fabrics.
NOW, the question is “what will I do with all of this???” I already have a name for the quilt….. “Cuttings from the Garden”. I may ask my Mom to make one more flower block for it, but that is yet to be decided.
Needless to say, I ended up working on this and forgetting about the backing fabric that I was looking for…..oh well, there is always another day.
