I haven't done any patchwork and quilting for ages now, but the other day the bug bit me and I pulled out all my stash and spread it over the living room floor. I came across a bag of scraps, some of them only an inch square, given to me a while ago by friend. She and I had started sewing them into 6.5" square blocks, but I had put them away and done no more. I decided to resume this project.
In the last couple of days I have doubled the number of blocks, and have decided how I'm going to "set" the blocks (arrange them into a pattern). I know how big the finished quilt will be and who it is for (shhh, it's a secret). I don't know what I'm going to do about borders yet, and I've only got the vaguest idea about backing, and don't even ask me about the quilting until it's all put together.
It's a proper thrift quilt, made almost entirely from fabric I already have, left over from other projects. I'm going to have to buy the batting (stuffing) for it, but I hope I can do all the rest from my stash.
