I know I said I would go for the tumbler project.....but after cutting a few of them, I knew it was a mistake. I was quickly losing interest. I will sew up the few I cut and make a snack mat and say done. I figure it is better to stop than end up with a permanent UFO.
I ran across this saved magazine pattern from McCall's Quilting 2003, last week. It is made with a majority of vintage fabrics and has a vertical setting of bricks. Vintage fabric.....is fabric from the 80s and 90s old enough to be vintage? Vertical setting......vertical setting is different and interesting.
Neutral (muslin/tonal) 1 1/2" by 2" for between the bricks
Neutral vertical setting strip is 1 1/2" by what ever length it ends up!
Note---- the original version used 1 1/2" by 3 1/4" bricks and 1 1/4" for the mortar.
It reminds me of the Charming Bricks from last year. I love this little wall hanging.
I know I won't make a huge dent in the scrap bin......but I keep trying! Since I am still cutting several projects, I can cut some ends off and toss in the box for this.
With the heat --96 degrees tomorrow--returning for the rest of the week, I know I will be staying inside . Happy stitching.
