I first thought that I would give them to a friend who makes charity quilts and then thought that it might be fun for me to do. I have a HUGE stash of traditional printed fabrics that I no longer use. They are stored in big bins under the guest room bed and in the guest room closet, sorted by color. I do love blues and teals and I have an abundance.
I played around with several different patterns, including these two stars.
After piecing together these two rows, I decided to make it 4 blocks across and 6 down for a nice lap quilt size. The blocks sew down to 11 inches. I quickly ran out of triangles and had to start cutting more triangles and more triangles and more triangles. What was I thinking? But I don't have much else going on in the studio these days and it gives me something to do and maybe I'll make a little dent in the stash.
I went to a friend's house the other day and she had the prettiest paper napkins. I took one home and printed it onto white fabric. Ta dah! It's going into the quilt.
So now it's back to work. I just finished piecing the blocks for row three and have to sew them together.
I will be linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
