In between things this past month, I made long rows from the leftover short strips of all sizes, every color....just throw it all in to the mix. Pretty scary, huh? I just wanted to use up those short pieces and empty a container. These rows are 6 1/2" wide and about 60 inches long. Makes a great waste not project.
Yesterday, I put it together into a coin quilt. I used 3" wide bands between each row, and added a 5" border on all sides. So it is now ready to pin and quilt and become a donation quilt for my guild Habitat for Humanity project.
And to fulfill my promise for a doll quilt for each project finished, I did a small one that is also ready to quilt. These strips were too short for the big one....the rows are 5 inches wide with a 2 inch band in the center.
Since I was on a roll, I added a border to the strip pieced water color that I never finished. This is the one I put together during the strip piecing tutorial. It is a small lap throw about 45" by 60".
So 2 + to quilt and finish. No UFOs hanging around here. The design wall is bare. Nature abhors a vacuum, and that means I will be putting something up there soon.
Hint: It could be time to pull out the gridded interfacing.
Happy New Year and happy stitching.
