and many, many of you make and donate quilt, quilt tops, batting,fabric, etc to the mulitude of 'needs' across the world. Quilts for Japan, quilts for prison ministries, quilts for soldiers... and on and on. I'm proud and happy to be part of that particular "collective good". A while back these cute medical frogs came to me as orphan blocks. Wish I could remember who sent them...I'm thinking Julie, of Quilting in the Barn, don't know for sure. They were 6" blocks, just frogs and red, and they numbered 12. Hmmmm? what to do with them?
Recently I added the 2" muslin strips, bringing them up to 8.5" but still no clue as how to use them?? And then last night, laying in bed, staring up at the ceiling fan....a brain storm hit!!
Over the first 6 months or so of this year, I've been sewing random 2.5" strips in 16 patches...dozens and dozens of 16 patches. The variety crosses a wide portion of my stash, my scraps and donated stuff. And as Fate would have it, they just happen to be 8.5"....can you guess what comes next?? Stay tuned for the next chapter.
