Part of the adventure was saying goodbye to some of her possessions and would we like 2 trash bags full of quilting fabrics.
We never pass on an opportunity like this and we had a lot of fun going through everything that was there.
Some pieces were quite substantial yardage but in the midst I found a whole lot of pre cut 2" squares in blue and white. Some were stitched into 4 patches but a lot were not.
When we do harvesting of scraps we only go down to 2.5" so these small pieces of fabric presented a little challenge for me.
I ended up making some into 9 patch blocks and some into snowball blocks which turned out to a fun combination.
Amazing what you can do with some 2" scrappy pieces.
Thank you, Fiona, for sharing your fabric with us.
What a lovely quilt! I've always wanted to make a blue, yellow, and white quilt for Spring/Summer decorating. The smalllest bits that I typically use are 2.5 inches.
Hello, lovely to see you blogging again. I can't cope with itty bitty pieces of fabric either, and you did very well using those 2 inch squares. It must have been just like Christmas going through those bags of donated scraps.
