I also unpacked another box. I am really down to only 1 more box but I think it is scrapbooking stuff not fabric.
I found a rubbermaid bin of plaids and stripes -- mostly homespun. But what a surprise when I opened an old plastic pencil box. This is full of half square triangles that have been cut off of blocks like snow balls. And, evidently I was really efficient because most are already sewn! Some are even trimmed. Amazing. I know I've run into other containers of triangles some sewn, most not. I view this as a great find! The ones in the top are from a Pineapple Blossom quilt directions are at Quiltville.com.
I've already made one little quilt from these blocks. I hand quilted it, bound it and it is ready to go to Faithful Circle Quilter's Fall Silent Auction. (Columbia, Maryland.) Ok, not quite, it doesn't have a label. Every year that quilt group raises money to help with holiday baskets provided by the First Presbyterian Church of Columbia. If you live in central Maryland it is a great group. We meet at the church so this is one way we help "pay them back" for letting us use their facilities. Here's the finished little quilt. I am keeping my membership there in hopes I can get down there every once and a while.
Tomorrow I'll be going to the Wednesday quilters. I plan on trimming the heartstrings blocks, taking out the rest of the quilting stitches in a small quilt. And, I'll probably need to think of something else -- hum, maybe I'll make a label for that mini quilt! I could also trim half square triangles! Happy Quilting all!
