Do you all remember this project from the cover of Sew Scrappy, volume two? I reviewed it back in January:
Well, it's the second project I've started this week. I thought all along that it would be a great way to use up a lot of the more dubious fabrics I've accumulated over the years. I'm hoping that once they are cut small enough they will all blend into a harmonious whole. At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Here you can see the infamous banana fabric that has plagued me for several years:
Is that not the worst thing you have ever seen? It came in a scrap bag from Keepsake Quilting. I stopped buying scrap bags and fat quarter packs once I realized that they were full of fabrics that no one else was willing to buy. When I started weeding out my stash, I found tons of them, so I think I will enlarge this quilt to a queen size. That will be 7 ft by 8 ft, or 896 3" hourglasses. 63 down,
833 to go!
