Trash to Treasure?
Nadine at Quilted Bliss, recently had a give away of her bits and pieces, with the goal of clearing out her stash so she could move on to new projects. Apparently, my I-never-win-anything-good streak has ended and I received a delightful packet of fabric scraps this weekend. There were actually 3 packets, but 2 were in colors similar to the first pic. Much to my delight there were some batiks, which quickly moved in with the rest of my gang. I was feeling quite guilty that she had spent a small fortune mailing these goodies to me from the UK. So I decided that I needed to immediately jump into action.
Colored Columbine project. My vision is to "mat" each of the blocks with a color, then "frame" them each with black. Then sash between the frames & bind with red for a 60x60 finished quilt (5x5 blocks). Of course...that may change as it all goes together. And since Nadine is a hand-piecer, I too am doing this all by hand.
