I'm having one of those weekends that I am being left to myself and the offer has been taken up with glee.
I have a quilt swap coming up and my partner requested pink. I was a little worried because I didn't think I had much in the range of pink but hey look what I found. It's quite scary to think that I don't know what is in my stash of fabric upstairs.....
Although I like to sew from a pattern there are times where I just like to just go with the flow and cut and sew.
My mini quilt is to be 18" by 18" So I realised when I was sewing these squares together that my quilt was a little bit bigger than I thought it would be. Ops That's OK, hubby said I could make it into a cushion ( a very big cushion)....That's a good idea!
Back to the drawing board, I then cut up the same fabric into 2 1/2" squares and got the size.
I used Medium Grey Kona for the boarding.
(Sorry for the photos today...there hasn't been much sunshine this weekend.)
There were a good amount of small scraps left and I really didn't want them to be thrown out.
( there is no room to put any more in my box of scraps)
I decided to grab my newest book Quilting Line and Colour By Yoshiko Jinzenji and I made this also...
Now I don't know which top I will make into a Mini Quilt.
I must head off and look for a tutorial on making my top into a cushion...any suggestions?
