Finn style. If I had never started blogging, I probably would never have given a thought to what my "style" might be. Blogging has changed that. I do HAVE a style, and I suspect you do too. If we speak of "leaders and enders", we probably think of Bonnie, at Quiltville. If we say "wonky" our heads pop right over to Tonya, at Lazy Gal Quilting. Now if you think of Finn, you might think scraps, or you might think "orphans". Actually both would be correct. As play time today, I picked this unlikely candidate. And it's OLD(upps, ELDERLY). It began life as leftover 3.5" 9 patches from a Tina Gravetts workshop. They didn't make the "cut" and went into the orphan bin. That was about 1990. Some years later I added strips, thinking "do" a log cabin from them, but wasn't crazy about those either. Back into the bin they all went..12 log cabins with 9 patch centers. Somwhere since then, I put the 12 together and added the yellow. Still nothing..back to the bin. The little top measured 31" X 40" at that point.
And then last evening I spied a section of "cut off extra" from a strippy top. It had been made of 2.5" strips. I had made the top too long for the width, so I chopped off the extra. Part got used for something, but I had 21"(w) X 32"(L)left. Hmmmm? A light bulb moment...cut into sections and attach as the next row on poor 9 patch/log cabin. And I did!! I needed 4 cuts-4.5"(sides) and 4 cuts at 3.5"(top and bottom). That happened at playtime this morning *VBS*
