I should finish this quilt top, right? Well, I kinda like the idea of working on blocks during this busy time. It lets me accomplish something even when I have a short amount of time to sew.
I’m trying to recreate some blocks I made for our quilt guild. I really liked the look and I wanted to make more. The one technique I’m adding to each block is what I’m calling franken-fabric (I’m sure there’s a right way to call this). I’m cutting big pieces of fabric into oddly shaped, smaller pieces then sewing them together to create fabric with many stitch lines. It started as a necessity: I wanted to use scraps to create the blocks for our guild’s opportunity quilt. I had to piece the smaller scraps together because I just didn’t have enough. Now I like what it looks like.
