It measures about 35 x 35, a small baby quilt size, and I think that's as far as I will go with it. I met my goal of using up the gray solid that I started with, and combined it with "sherbert" colored scraps in shades of yellow, pink, green, and blue.
After making the initial few blocks, it was a good challenge to figure out how to fit them all together - the best kind of puzzle! You can see where I added a long stripe here or there, or sliced up a block I had made into smaller pieces to fill in a hole. I definitely enjoyed this process!
A little fussy-cutting makes a fun surprise here and there!
Today I pieced a backing for this quilt, and I hope to get the basting done tomorrow, so that quilting can begin.
Yesterday I went to a garage sale and bought fabric! I never do that, but this was being held by a local quilt guild which a friend of mine belongs to, and I knew everything there would be sewing related.
I got this gallon-sized Ziploc bag of fat quarters and yardage - anything I could stuff into it - for $10!
Here's what I found - 14 fat quarters - lots of neutrals plus a red and some greens.
Some fun Christmas trees on a light blue background -
and this really cool piece - not sure what I'll do with it, but it will be fun to contemplate!
I don't have a huge stash, and I especially use up neutral/low volume fabric quickly, so I will enjoy having a few more choices for my next blocks and projects!
