So I am still bringing in more fabric than I am using. But so far this month I've bought no fabric at all.
As well as everyone else, I've been making masks. Unfortunately, masks don't take all that much fabric. And, I'm using muslin for backing and ties. Luckily I have a lot of it from different people's stashes I was given. So, yes, I'm using small amounts of my own fabric, and making a dent in the other stashes. I did not add those into my fabric acquisition numbers over the years so I am not deducting them either. Hopefully, I will get a few of my own projects quilted and bound this month.
I started with 8 blocks/parts of blocks left over from a baby quilt I made in 1997. Scrappy Mountain Majesties is a Bonnie Hunter pattern available on Quiltville.com. It's been on my UFO list for ages.
I added 9 blocks and dropped a bunch to get this 3 x 4 layout. The blocks are taller than they are wide. The 3 x 3 setting seemed an odd size. So I made 15 blocks. Yep, that works. Once I find a backing fabric, get it quilted and bound I'll be able to mark it off my UFO.
Not every juncture is wonderful. Some look like the top one at the right. And some look like the bottom one which looks pretty darn good to me! There will be no border. This goes directly into my closet with other tops needing to be quilted. This one is small -- it'll probably only need a 1.25 yards for the backing. But do I have that much fabric just hanging around? Maybe, I need to do a really good search.
I've started putting together the red, white and blue blocks I showed here. Hum, I just reread what I wrote. I forgot all about putting sashing in. I've already sewn the top row together with no sashing. Oh well. Hopefully it will look good when finished. Tomorrow I'll check my measurements and make sure these blocks will be the right size for QOVs.
I'm still making masks, but I'm sewing on my UFOs too. I hope to be able to continue to donate 10 to 15 masks a week to good causes but still make some forward progress on my own projects.
I'm linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday, Can I Get a hoop Whoop, Beauties 76, Midweek Makers, and To Do Tuesday. I'm doing some surfing over the next few days. won't you join me?
Stay Safe and Happy Quilting! Bonnie
