As you can see, the quilt is getting smaller. I thought I would show you some of the fabrics that we used. We get donations from various people but these were mainly from our guild. I picked up a couple of bags of pre-cut strips that were on the giveaway table. There was a note attached that said you had to take the whole bag - you were not allowed to open it up and just take what you wanted. We ended up with this huge quilt of 8" blocks. It measures 11 blocks across and 12 blocks down with a 3" border. There was still a lot of fabric left so we brought the bags back for someone else to use.
An orange slice peeking out.
Little bird houses.
We used light coloured fabrics on one side of the black strip and darker ones on the other.
We used whatever was in the bag - even Christmas fabrics since you would see so little of it.
Butterflies and flowers.
all mixed in.
Some fabrics were easy to relegate into the light or dark pile...
but others were hard so we had to make an executive decision at times. The bottom left corner was an iffy one but it really depends on what you put beside it. We also left out any fabric that were solids because they really stuck out and your eye automatically went to it.
Cows, chickens, chicks and eggs.
Pumpkin man and maybe a scarecrow on the left.
Some with writing.
Gorgeous colours and more writing.
And this is one I keep looking at as I quilt.
My favourite little piece. Love the colours and scenery.
